Tramadol is an effective pain reliever (analgesic). Its mode of
action resembles that of narcotics, but it has significantly less
potential for abuse and addiction than the narcotics. Tramadol is
as effective as narcotics in relieving pain but does not depress
respiration, a side effect of most narcotics. Tramadol is in a class
of medications called opiate (narcotic) analgesics. Tramadol is
not a nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug (NSAID), and does not have
the increased risk of stomach ulceration and internal bleeding that
can occur with the use of NSAIDs.
Tramadol is used in the management of moderate to moderately severe
pain. It may be used to treat pain caused by chronic and surgery
conditions such as cancer or joint pain.
