Generic Ryzolt

Two companies make generic versions of Ryzolt (tramadol ER). The generic versions come in three strengths (100 mg, 200 mg, and 300 mg) and are considered equivalent to the brand-name drug. However, they might contain different inactive ingredients, which could cause problems for some people.

Is a Generic Version of Ryzolt Available?

Ryzolt™ (tramadol ER) is a prescription pain medication. It is a long-acting version of tramadol that is taken once daily and is approved for moderate to moderately severe chronic pain in adults.

Is Generic Tramadol ER as Good as Ryzolt?

All generic medications must undergo certain tests to compare them to brand-name medications. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) then looks at these tests to decide if the generics are equivalent to the brand-name medications and assigns a rating to each one.
 
An "AB" rating means that the FDA has determined that a generic medication is equivalent to a brand-name medication. All of the generic versions of Ryzolt currently available have an "AB" rating, meaning they should be equivalent to Ryzolt.
 
Notably, not all extended-release tramadol products are equivalent to Ryzolt (some are equivalent to other brand-name tramadol ER products). Your pharmacist will be able to determine which products are equivalent to Ryzolt.
 
Generic medications are allowed to have different inactive ingredients than the brand-name medication. This might include fillers, dyes, or other ingredients that may cause problems for people with allergies or sensitivities.
