November 13, 2004 - Russell Tyrone Jones or known as Ol' Dirty Bastard (OBD), died inside Wu Tang's Manhattan based 36 Records. According to the medical examiner, his death was caused by the combined effects of Tramadol and cocaine, which eventually lead to heart attack. OBD was complaining about chest pain several days before his death. He was supposed to turn 37 by November 15.

This news had shocked many people, particularly the fans of OBD. Some are aware that he is taking the medication; however, they did not expect the incident to happen.

Many people are indeed aware of the bad effects that can be brought on by Tramadol if used for no reason, if used for a long period of time, if taken in incorrect dosages and if used with other medicines. These side effects must be known first by people who are planning to take the drug.

The central nervous system can be badly affected when using Tramadol as this can alter the chemical signals being released in the brain which are not related to pain. If the CNS is affected, a person can experience hallucinations, loss of coordination, agitation, seizures and fainting. These side effects are serious and so, once you experienced them, you should immediately seek medical help. You may also experience less serious side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, blurry vision, weakness and sleep problems. Though these are less serious, still, you should not ignore them.

In addition to the central nervous system, the cardiovascular system can be affected as well. A person can experience chest pain, increase in his blood pressure, weak pulse, shortness of breath or fast heartbeat. Again, these are serious side effects and so, they must not be left ignored. Once experienced, you should immediately stop using the drug and consult your doctor.

The gastrointestinal system can likewise be affected. A person can experience diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, and decrease in appetite or constipation. If any of these is experienced, go to your doctor. He/she might advice you a medicine that can be used in order to treat these side effects. He might also reduce the dosage to avoid such painful side effects.

These side effects, especially the serious ones, if ignored can lead to death. If you do not want to end up likeOl' Dirty Bastard, you should be very careful when using Tramadol. Always follow the instruction and adhere to the prescribed dosage. Do not alter the dose as this can be dangerous. Also, do not take this drug if you are drunk as this cause slowed breathing. And if you are using sleeping pills or any medication for allergies, it is recommended not to use Tramadol as you can just experience drowsiness.

Side effects of taking drugs cannot be avoided by some because of the tendency that their body will not respond well to the drug. However, the chance of experiencing side effects can be reduced if the person will use the drug accordingly and if he follows to what his doctor had told him.

Prescription drugs as they say are made to lessen the pain or to treat illnesses experienced by people. However, if these are used in the wrong way, they can function the other way round. Instead of treating a person, the person can be killed just because of the incorrect dosage that he had taken or just because he did not use the drug accordingly. On the case of Tramadol, a person can become an addict, which is not healthy at all. His life can be ruined as he will be very dependent on the drug. And the worse is, he can also meet his death because of the serious side effects that he might experience.

It is indeed very important to take drugs only when needed. Some people might say that using Tramadol is their way of escaping this harsh world. However, there are more ways of doing that. You can actually escape the reality by having fun with your friends or by watching fiction movies. These are not harmful in any way and they do not need you to spend huge amount of money, whereas if you will use Tramadol, you will need to buy it.

Drugs can help you treat yourself; however, if not used properly, they can also be the ones that will destroy you. Thus, it is up to you, as the user, to manage things. Do not use drugs because of curiosity or because somebody is using it as well. You might not know but you are putting yourself into risk. Always remember that there is no second chance once you are dead. Thus, save your life, do not use Tramadol if not needed.
