What is Ultram?

Ultram is a pain medicine that helps relieve moderate to severe pain. Tramadol is a narcotic (opioid) analgesic. It changes how your body feels and responds to pain by acting on the brain.

Important Information

You should not take Ultram if you have severe breathing problems, a blockage in your stomach or intestines, or if you have recently used alcohol, sedatives, tranquilizers, narcotic medication, or an MAO inhibitor (isocarboxazid, linezolid, methylene blue injection, phenelzine, rasagiline, selegiline, tranylcypromine, and others).

If you take too much Ultram, seek immediate medical attention. When you first start taking Ultram, your dose is changed, or you take too much (overdose), you may experience serious or life-threatening breathing problems resulting in death.

Ultram has the potential to slow or stop your breathing, and it may become addictive. Addiction, overdose, or death may occur in people from the misuse of this medicine, especially in children or others who do not have a prescription.

Ultram use during pregnancy can result in life-threatening withdrawal symptoms in the baby.

If you combine tramadol with alcohol or other drugs that make you drowsy or slow your breathing, you could have fatal side effects. If you want to buy Ultram online, make sure to check all the warnings before using it.
