Help needed - regarding Ultram, ultracet, tramadol
- 25 Sep 2004 by Jen62Dar
What is the difference between Tramadol and ultracet? Is there any? Is one a generic version of the other? Also, what about the difference between Norco and Tramadol? I thought Norco had hydrocodone and Tramadol had something else? All of them have Tylenol, correct??
Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, ultracet is the generic version of Tramadol. I believe Norco is another name for Vicodin. It contains acetaminophen (tylenol) and hydrocodone.

Tramadol is the generic name for Ultram. Ultram contains 50 mg tramadol.
Ultracet contains 37.5 mg tramadol and 325 mg acetaminophen.
You can read all about both products at:
Norco, a brand name of hydrocodone and acetaminophen, is a different type of analgesic than Ultram or Ultracet. Norco and other hydrocodone/APAP combos are Schedule III; tramadol is not a scheduled substance at the current time.
