If you have been searching out a medication to treat moderate to severe pain, you may have found information about tramadol online. Tramadol is an atypical opioid, which acts as a general painkiller. Although it is listed as an opioid, because it is atypical, it is not related to other opioids. Originally sold under the name of tramal, tramadol was invented by the pharmaceutical company Grunenthal GmbH. Because it was cross licensed to other pharmaceutical companies, you may see it marketed under different names such as Adolonta, Contramal, Lumidol, Nobligan, Tiparol, Tradolan, Tralgit, Tramacip, Tramadin, Tramahexal, Tramedo, Ultram, Zamadol and Zydol
If you look for tramadol online, you may find that it can be injected intravenously or through the muscle or you can get it in the form of a pill. The amount needed for dosage will vary from patient to patient, although oral dosages can range from 50 to 400 mg daily. Up to 600 mg can be given intravenously or intramuscularly each day.
Tramadol can have adverse side effects such as vomiting, nausea, or sweating. Some people report feeling drowsy when taking tramadol. A common side effect of most opioids is respiratory depression, although unless you take an unusually large dosage, there should not be a need to worry. There is a possibility of becoming dependent on tramadol. The pharmaceutical companies say tramadol offers a much lower risk of dependency than most opioids. Regardless of this, the manufacturers of Ultram (one of the names tramadol is marketed under) do include a statement in their packaging information that “psychological and physical dependence” may be possible.
You may be able to purchase tramadol online by doing a search of online pharmacies. However, this is a powerful drug, so before you purchase tramadol online, you should always consult with a physician to make sure this is the right drug for you.
