Tramadol/Acetaminophen Drug Info

Tramadol/acetaminophen (Ultracet®) is a prescription medication often used to treat pain that is likely to improve quickly, such as pain due to an injury, surgery, or dental procedure. It is meant to be used for no longer than five days. The medication comes in tablet form and can be taken as frequently as every four to six hours as needed.
 
This drug is not appropriate for everyone; your healthcare provider needs complete information on your medical history and what medications you are taking before prescribing tramadol/acetaminophen. It was initially promoted as a pain reliever with little potential for abuse, based on early studies. However, practical experience with tramadol/acetaminophen suggests that it probably does have significant abuse potential.
