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.
