... prescribe them than "narcotic" pain relievers. Is Tramadol classified as an opiate? I know they can be addicting, but what exactly are they?
ACETAMINOPHEN; TRAMADOL (Ultracet®) is a combination analgesic that is used to relieve moderate, acute pain such as pain following surgical procedures, including dental surgery. Acetaminophen; tramadol may be used for other types of pain as determined by your health care provider. Generic acetaminophen.
The manufacture somehow got Tramadol classified as a non-opiate pain reliever. This is actually a problem as doctors were ordering the relatively weak pain reliever thinking they were non-addictive only to find out later that their patient were experiencing withdrawals when they were finished with the drug.
So treat it the same as you would Tylenol #3 which is how the manufacture describes the pain killing strength of Tramadol. Be careful with this drug and only take it as prescribe because taking to much can lead to some pretty bad seizures..Hope this helps..Dave
It is in fact a synthetic opiate... its like splenda is to sugar on a much higher level... We all now sugar is bad for you.But FYI anyone who has ever taken tylenol in higher doses and for a extended period of time will feel an adverse reaction when you stop use ubrubtly. I have to say though stick with the Ultram and always do what you feel is proper, after all, its YOUR health.
