|Elderly women may be more susceptible to certain side effects of tramadol due to age-related changes in their metabolism and body composition. Common side effects of tramadol in elderly women may include:|
4 Nausea and vomiting
7 Dry mouth
Loss of appetite
In addition, tramadol may increase the risk of falls and fractures in elderly women, particularly those with pre-existing osteoporosis or other medical conditions affecting bone density. It may also interact with other medications commonly prescribed to elderly women, such as antidepressants, benzodiazepines, and anticholinergic drugs, potentially causing serious side effects.
If an elderly woman experiences any side effects while taking tramadol, it’s important to contact her healthcare provider promptly. They may recommend adjusting the dose, changing to a different medication, or taking other steps to manage the side effects and ensure the safety and well-being of the patient.
