Use of Tramadol
Pain is a sensation that our brain receives through the nerves. To offer us relief from pain painkillers block or change the ways of pain sensation. Tramadol is a very effective painkiller. To offer us relief from pain, Tramadol changes the ways of pain sensation in both body and brain so that they cannot reach the brain. Tramadol HCL is the active ingredient of this painkiller which helps us to fight with pain. To do that, it prevents the reabsorption of serotonin and norepinephrine. This painkiller activates the opiate receptors in the central nervous system to stop the effects of pain sensation on the spinal cord. Thus, it prevents the pain sensation from reaching the brain and helps us to get relief from pain.
What is scheduling of drugs?
Drugs, some chemicals, and substance which are used in making medicines are classified into 5 categories depending on their medical use and potential of abuse. The potential of abuse determines in which list the drug will come; for example, schedule I drugs have the high potential for abuse. This scheduling is done by the Drug Enforcement Administration of United State. Tramadol is a drug which is listed on the schedule IV drug.
Why is Tramadol considered as the controlled substance?
Tramadol is a very effective painkiller which can help us to get a pain free life. But, as it is a narcotic drug, it has various issues which can lead us to danger. So in many places, it becomes a controlled substance. You can use it only with doctor’s prescription. In the USA, the Drug Enforcement Administration listed it as schedule IV drug. Let’s discuss the risk factors of using Tramadol;
Tramadol has the high potential for abuse as it a narcotic drug. Tramadol is actually a central nervous system stimulant. It works as soon as it absorbs into the blood. So, the abusers use it by inhaling it in the form of powder or inject into the body by mixing it with water. They thought that then Tramadol works more effectively and fast. But, actually, it can be harmful to our health. This kind of abusing can make a person numb. There are some substances like alcohol which we should not take with Tramadol. But abusers also take them together for a stronger effect in both body and brain. Tramadol is also addictive. So, it should not be taken for long period of time or more than one pill in one day. If you become addicted or dependent on the drug, then it will become difficult for you to live without the drug. When you become dependent on the drug, you will not take it to treat your pain; you will take it to relax your nerves which can be very dangerous.
From the discussion, we come to know about the risk factors which are related to Tramadol and for which it is considered as the controlled substance. So, we should always use Tramadol as directed by the physician. Like other drugs, it was also made for the wellness of us which is being sold under the brand name of Ultram. But, we use it in unacceptable ways which harm us only. So use Tramadol as the doctor says to treat your pain and get a pain free life.
