Tramadol ( Ultram ) addiction is often the cause of long-term intake of the drug. It serves most patients to relieve the severe effects of pain due to surgery or chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia or arthritis.
Ultram Addiction Treatment, Abuse, and Symptoms
Ultram (Tramadol) is a centrally-acting synthetic opioid used to treat moderate to moderately severe pain. Ultram comes in tablet form and is available with a prescription only. Ultram is a controlled substance opioid with high risk for addiction and dependence, even when used at prescribed dosages.
Ultram ® is a narcotic-like pain relief that works by decreasing the body’s sense of pain. When this drug is combined with other substances, especially alcohol, it can cause respiratory distress. Call your doctor if you find that you want to take extra medication or notice any other unusual changes in your behavior or mood.
Ultram (Tramadol) Effects can include:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Shallow breathing
- Drowsiness or sedation
- Irritability, agitation or aggressiveness
- Restless legs
- Compulsive use of Ultram
- Continued use of Ultram despite negative consequences
- Loss of control over Ultram use
- Non-medical use of Ultram
Recent research shows that Ultram has more significant potential to be abused than was believed when it first appeared on the U.S. market in 1995. Maybe doctors and the FDA, the agency charged with regulating drug safety, may have gotten wrong the effects and risks with Ultram addiction.
