Tramadol and Mortality in Osteoarthritis

Our next #RheumJC will be Thursday, March 28th at 9pm Eastern Time / 8pm Central Time (click here to find this in your local time zone).

We’ll be discussing the JAMA article: Association of Tramadol With All-Cause Mortality Among Patients With Osteoarthritis

For some bonus learning, we suggest reading the writeup on the Nephmadness 2019: Pain Region, which includes sections on tramadol as well as opioids, NSAIDs, and GABAnergics.

If you’re new to #RheumJC, take a look at our Intro to Twitter page or our Journal Club Getting Started Guide.

As always:

  1. Please remember to try to stay on topic whenever possible.
  2. Be polite and courteous.
  3. Do not violate HIPAA.

We welcome suggestions for future articles for discussion. Please send your suggestions by Direct Message on Twitter to @RheumJC or email us at
