What is Tramadol and how to use it?

Tramadol

Tramadol is an opioid agonist used to treat moderate to moderately severe chronic pain in adults. It works by changing how your brain perceives pain. It’s available in tablet or capsule form.

Usage:

Tramadol is used for the short-term relief of severe pain.

It should only be used when other forms of non-opioid pain relief have not been successful in managing pain or are not tolerated.

Extended-release forms of tramadol may be used in adults who require around-the-clock treatment of their pain for an extended period.

Important Considerations:

Tramadol can lead to opioid addiction, abuse, and misuse, which can result in overdose and death.

It can slow or stop your breathing.

It should not be used in children younger than 12 years of age.

If you use this medication for a long time while you’re pregnant, it can cause withdrawal in a newborn.

Taking tramadol with certain drugs can cause varied, serious effects, which can be life-threatening.

Common Side Effects:

Nausea
Constipation
Dry mouth
Drowsiness
Dizziness
Vomiting
