Tramadol does not have codeine in it. It has been pushed by drug reps to doctors as the non-narcotoic pain reliever. The medical pain reliever of the century if you will. The probelm with tramadol is it is very addictive just like a narcotic pain reliever. It carries a substance the turns narcotic like when it enters your system. It is also a deug that once you are on it cannot be stopped suddenly as it can cause seizures. Just some warnings if you are considering taking it for pain relief...
Ultram or tramadol, which docs hand out like candy, is listed in the prescribing information healthcare providers are given under OPIATES. Hummmm! Makes one wonder about the agendas and morals of pharmaceutical companies. And after first pass metabolism do convert to an opiate type metabolite. Jeez, smells like, walks like, quacks like... must be. There are so many meds out there that are out in the world, one would think the consumers deserve truthful information. Just my 2 cents.
