About Tramadol

Tramadol is a synthetic medicine or analgesic (pain killer). Its exact mechanism is unknown but similar morphine. Like morphine, tramadol binds to receptors in the brain (opioid receptors) that are important for the transmission of pain sensation over the entire body.

It has introduced nearly three decades since the Tramadol in the market as a centrally acting analgesic. It is alleged to have low opioid properties and potential for opiate addiction in patients low.

The data obtained were used descriptive statistics and a comparison with the results to be calculated from other countries.

At least 103 (64%) patients reported dependence criteria (for example, in the sense of mental well-being, not able to stop taking the drug, more than two weeks after the application of tramadol). A total of 145 (89%) patients were younger than 30 and 90 (55%) patients under the age of 18 years. About 63% of patients reported a history of drug or drug abuse.
