Hi..
Tramadol HCL is similar to Tramadol but the formula for Tramadol HCL allows it to be used as an ER(extended release) drug..
The only real differences will be the dosage amount..Tramadol tablets are available in 50mg and 100mg doses. Tramadol HCL capsules are available in 100-400mg (100mg intervals) doses.
good luck.

Hello c.a.lee. Tramadol and Tramadol Hydrocloride (full tiltle) are both one and the same. It is the generic drug to the brand name Ultram. Best of wishes and good health to you,pledge

Hi, Tramadol hydrochloride is the 'best' version, as it is released gradually. Tramadol sulphate works it way through your body much faster & you will eliminate the drug much quicker. Thus leaving you with less of the effects.
