Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the orally disintegrating tramadol side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have problems with a medicine that you have never tried.
 
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking the drug or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be related to orally disintegrating tramadol, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
