What is Ultracet?
A combination of acetaminophen and tramadol is used to treat moderate to severe pain.
Acetaminophen and tramadol contain an opioid-like medication that can become addictive.
Tramadol and acetaminophen may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
Acetaminophen is a pain reliever that can also be used to reduce a fever. You can easily buy Ultracet online from a trusted online pharmacy.
Do not use Ultracet if you have severe breathing problems, a blockage in your stomach or intestines, or if you have recently used an MAO inhibitor.
Do not give Ultracet to anyone under the age of 12 or anyone under the age of 18 who has recently had surgery to remove their tonsils or adenoids.
Taking Ultracet while pregnant can result in life-threatening withdrawal symptoms in the newborn.
If you combine this medication with alcohol or other drugs that cause drowsiness or slow your breathing, fatal side effects can occur.
What to know before taking Ultracet?
Do not use Ultracet if you are allergic to acetaminophen (Tylenol) or tramadol (Ultram), or if you have:
- severe asthma or breathing issues
- if you have used an MAO inhibitor (such as isocarboxazid, linezolid, phenelzine, rasagiline, selegiline, tranylcypromine) in the past 14 days
- a blockage in your stomach or intestines
Ultracet is not for use by anyone younger than 12 years old.
Do not give Ultracet to anyone younger than 18 years old who recently had surgery to remove the tonsils or adenoids.
Seizures have occurred in certain people taking tramadol. Your risk of a seizure may be higher if you have ever had:
- drug or alcohol addiction
- a metabolic disorder
- breathing problems, sleep apnea
- a head injury, brain tumor, or seizures
- if you have used sedatives, tranquilizers, or narcotic medications recently
To make sure this drug is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have ever had:
- liver disease, or if you drink alcohol
- kidney disease, urination problems
- problems with your pancreas, gallbladder, or thyroid
- depression, mental illness, or a suicide attempt
If you take Ultracet while pregnant, your baby may develop a tramadol addiction. After the baby is born, this can cause life-threatening withdrawal symptoms. Babies who are born addicted to a habit-forming drug may require medical attention for several weeks.
If you are breastfeeding, talk to your doctor before taking any opioid medications. If you notice severe drowsiness or shallow breathing in the nursing baby, contact your doctor.
