Tramadol no Prescription is Really Available



  1. Tramadol is a strong painkiller. It’s used to treat moderate to severe pain, for example after an operation or a serious injury.
    It’s also used to treat long-standing pain when weaker painkillers no longer work.
    Tramadol is available only on prescription. It comes as tablets, capsules and liquid drops that you swallow. It can also be given by injection but this is usually only done in hospital.
  2. Key facts

    • Tramadol works by blocking pain signals from travelling along the nerves to the brain.
    • The most common side effects of tramadol are feeling sick and dizzy.
    • It's possible to become addicted to tramadol, but this is rare if you're taking it to relieve pain as advised by your doctor.
    • It's best not to drink alcohol with tramadol as you're more likely to get side effects like feeling sleepy.
    • Tramadol is also called by the brand names Invodol, Larapam, Mabron, Maneo, Marol, Maxitram, Oldaram, Tilodol, Tradorec, Tramquel, Tramulief, Zamadol, Zeridame and Zydol.
  3. Who can and can't take tramadol

    Tramadol can be taken by adults and children aged 12 and over.
    Tramadol is not suitable for some people. Tell your doctor or pharmacist before starting the medicine if you have:
    • had an allergic reaction to tramadol or any other medicines in the past
    • an illness which causes seizures
    • a head injury
    • an addiction to alcohol, strong painkillers or recreational drugs
    • breathing difficulties
    • kidney or liver problems
    • had a reaction to other strong painkillers in the past
  4. How and when to take it

    It's important to take tramadol as your doctor has asked you to.
    The dose can vary but you should not normally take more than 400mg a day.
    Tramadol doesn't usually upset your tummy, so you can take it with or without food.

    Different types of tramadol

    Tramadol comes as:
    • tablets
    • capsules
    • liquid drops (that you mix with water and swallow)
    • an injection

    Tramadol drops, injections and some tablets and capsules are fast-acting. They start to work within 30 to 60 minutes. They're used for pain that is expected to last for only a short time. You may be told to take fast-acting tramadol only when you need it for pain or on a regular basis. Always follow the instructions given to you by your doctor.
    Some tramadol tablets and capsules are slow-release. This means the tramadol is gradually released into your body over either 12 or 24 hours. This type of tramadol takes longer to start working but lasts longer. It's used for long-term pain.
    Your doctor will decide the right dose for you, depending on how sensitive you are to pain and how bad your pain is. Your dose may need to be changed several times to find what works best for you. In general, you will be prescribed the lowest dose that relieves your pain.

    How to take it

    Fast-acting tramadol comes as capsules, drops and 2 different tablets - soluble and dissolve-in-the-mouth tablets:
    • capsules: swallow each capsule whole with plenty of water
    • drops: mix the drops into a glass of water then drink the whole contents of the glass
    • soluble tablets: dissolve each tablet in 50ml (1/2 cup) of water and drink
    • dissolve-in-the-mouth tablets: make sure your hands are dry before handling the tablet. Take the tablet out of the blister pack and put it on your tongue. Suck the tablet, do not chew it. After it has melted, swallow or have a drink of water. You can also dissolve the tablet in a glass of water if you prefer.

    Slow-release tramadol comes as tablets and capsules. It's important to swallow slow-release tramadol tablets and capsules whole with a drink of water.

    Do not break, crush, chew or suck slow-release tablets and capsules. If you do, the slow-release system won't work and the whole dose might get into your body in one go. This could cause a potentially fatal overdose.

    How often will I take it?

    How often you take it depends on the type of tramadol that you have been prescribed:
    • fast-acting tablets and capsules - usually 3 to 4 times a day
    • drops - usually 3 to 4 times a day
    • slow-release tablets and capsules - usually 1 or 2 times a day

    If you're 65 and over, or you have liver or kidney problems, you may be asked by your doctor to take tramadol less often.
    You can take your tramadol at any time of day but try to take it at the same time every day and space your doses evenly. For example, if you take tramadol twice a day and have your first dose at 8am, take your second dose at 8pm.
