What is Tramadol?

Tramadol is an opioid pain medication. It is available in the market with the brand name Ultram, which helps relieve moderate to moderately severe pain. However, it also manages severe pain enough to require an opioid analgesic and for which alternative treatments are inadequate. It is also available in injection along with oral tablets/ capsules and liquid.

There is moderate evidence of its use as a second-line treatment for fibromyalgia as a secondary painkiller. It is also available in combination with acetaminophen (paracetamol) or as longer-acting formulations. On a dosage to dosage basis, it has about one-tenth of the potency of morphine and is equally potent to pethidine and codeine.

Important Information about Tramadol

Do not use Tramadol for patients who are suicidal or prone to addiction. Tramadol can slow down or stop breathing and may be addictive. Misuse of medicines like Tramadol can cause overdose, addiction, or death.

Tramadol may increase serotonin levels in your body and rarely cause severe serotonin syndrome. However, go for medical help if you have serotonin syndrome symptoms such as hallucinations, fast heartbeat, severe dizziness, loss of coordination, severe vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, unexplained fever, twitching muscles, unusual agitation, or restlessness.

Taking Tramadol during pregnancy can cause life-threatening withdrawal symptoms to the newborn baby. Tell the doctor about your pregnancy (if you are pregnant) or plan to conceive. If you are breastfeeding, ask your doctor before taking Tramadol.

How to take Tramadol?

Take Tramadol precisely as per the doctor’s prescription and follow all the directions on your prescription label. Resist taking all other around-the-clock narcotic pain medications when you start taking Tramadol.

Use a dosing syringe or a medicine dose-measuring device to measure the liquid medicine carefully. Do not crush or open an extended-release capsule or tablet (ConZip, Ultram ER). Instead, to avoid exposure to a potentially fatal dose, swallow the whole tablet/capsule.

Never inhale the powder of the tablet or mix it into a liquid to inject the drug into your vein. It may lead to death. It is normal to use a Tramadol ER tablet, and the tablet shell may pass into your bowel movement (stool).

Do not suddenly stop taking Tramadol. A sudden stop to the use of medicine may lead to unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. Instead, take your doctor’s help to stop taking this medicine safely.
