Tramadol is a synthetic opioid pain medication that functions in the same way as opioids. It acts on the central nervous system to ease pain (CNS).
Tramadol 50mg is a prescription pain medication for individuals who are suffering from moderate to severe pain.
Tramadol extended-release is used to treat pain seven days a week, 24 hours a day. This form of tramadol should not be used on an as-needed basis to relieve pain.
Before taking this medicine
You should not use tramadol if you are allergic to it or if you have any of the following disorders.
- Severe asthma or other breathing problems;
- Stomach or intestinal obstruction (including paralytic ileus);
- If you’ve lately used alcoholic beverages, sedatives, tranquilizers, or narcotic medicines; or
- If you’ve used an MAO inhibitor within the last 14 days (such as isocarboxazid, linezolid, methylene blue injection, or phenelzine).
- Tramadol 50mg should not be given to anyone under the age of 12. Anyone under the age of 18 should not be administered Ultram ER.
- Anyone under the age of 18 who has recently had their tonsils or adenoids removed should not use this medicine.
- Seizures have been reported in tramadol users. If you’ve had any of the following, your chances of having a seizure are likely to be higher.
- a concussion, epilepsy, or another seizure disorder
- a drug or alcohol addiction; or
- a metabolic issue
To make sure tramadol is safe for you, tell your doctor if you’ve ever had any of the following:
- Breathing problems, sleep apnea
- a problem with the liver or kidneys;
- problems with urinating;
- gallbladder, pancreas, or thyroid gland problems;
- a gastrointestinal problem; or
- mental illness or suicidal ideation
If you take Tramadol 50mg while pregnant, your baby may experience life-threatening withdrawal symptoms and will need medical care for several weeks.
Before using tramadol, see your doctor if you are breastfeeding. Call your doctor if you notice your nursing infant is drowsy or breathing slowly.
What if I don’t remember to take a dose?
Because tramadol is intended to alleviate pain, you are unlikely to miss a dose. If your next dose is coming up soon, you should skip any missed doses.
What happens if I overdo it?
An overdose can be fatal, especially if the medication is taken by a child or someone else without a prescription. An overdose is marked by extreme lethargy, pinpoint pupils, slow respiration, or no breathing at all.
Your doctor may advise you to obtain and carry naloxone (an opioid overdose reversal medication) at all times. Someone caring for you can administer naloxone if you stop breathing or do not wake up. While you wait for help, your caregiver may need to seek emergency medical help and may have to do CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) on you.
Naloxone can be obtained from any drugstore or public health organization.
What should I avoid while using tramadol?
Alcoholic beverages should not be consumed. You may have terrible adverse effects or perhaps die as a result of taking this medication.
Until you have a clearer grasp of how Tramadol 50mg will affect you, avoid driving or engaging in harmful activities. Dizziness or drowsiness can lead to falls, accidents, and serious injury.
Tramadol side effects
If you experience hives, difficulty breathing, swelling in your face or neck, or a severe skin response after taking tramadol, seek medical help right away (fever, sore throat, burning in your eyes, skin pain, red or purple skin rash that spreads and causes blistering and peeling).
