I think most pain relief potentially causes drowsieness but like all meds, take everyone differently. The Only pain med I've found to cause it for me is codine and I've also been on dihydracodine, Tramadol, neurontin and gabapentin to name a few and had no problems. Currently on morphine and Only found first few doses made me drowsy and now i'm fine. I hope you get a solution. Go well X

YOU COULD TRY ONE TRAMADOL TOGETHER WITH ONE PANADOL .. that sometimes works better.

There is aparently other opiate based drugs like tramadol and morphine which are stronger than tramadol but my doc wouldnt give me them as you can get used to them! Like you im stuck for something when i need it to kick in quick as tramadol is useless now! Sorry i cant help x

hello abbie,

i only take a small dose of 10mg at night. just enough to relax me to enable me to sleep, not a very high dose at all, i take it with the zo morph an hour before going to bed.
