I was giving tramadol 50mg for pain that has been caused by my lower stomach but does it contain... aspirin?
No, it is a synthetic narcotic. Take it with care though, treat it like you would Hydrocodone or similiar. They like to say that it is not addictive as other narcotics but, although it is not as strong, it is just as dangerous and addictive.
Also, make sure you are not taking any anti-depressants like Cymbalta, Effexor or Wellbutrin. Tramadol acts on Serotonin levels in your brain. Too much and it will cause a seizure or other symptoms called "Serotonin Syndrome".
I took it for two years until it caused seizures out of the blue. I found out the hard way after my third one that I wasn't supposed to mix it with my other medication. Withdrawal symptoms were a bitch.
Tramadol hydrochloride contain 37.5 mg tramadol hydrochloride and 325 mg acetaminophen and are light yellow in color. Inactive ingredients in the tablet are powdered cellulose, pregelatinized corn starch, sodium starch glycolate, corn starch, magnesium stearate, hypromellose, polyethylene glycol, polysorbate 80, titanium dioxide, iron oxide, and carnauba wax.
