Ingredients in Generic Tramadol

Generic tramadol is made by several different manufacturers, and each generic version can have different inactive ingredients, although they all contain 50 mg of tramadol hydrochloride. As long as the different inactive ingredients do not change the way the body absorbs or handles the medication, this is allowed. However, inactive ingredients can cause problems for people with certain allergies or sensitivities. If you have an allergy to a dye, preservative, or other inactive ingredient commonly used in medications, make sure to check with your pharmacist for the specific inactive ingredients in your particular generic version of tramadol.
