What is Tramadol
Tramadol, Ultram is a potent, medicinal opioid drug used to relieve severe pain, e.g. in wound pain, fractures, severe nerve pain, tumour pain, heart attack, surgery, or serious illness. It should not be used for minor pain. The effect sets in quickly and lasts for some hours.
It is less likely to cause dependence with long-term use than most opioids.
