Ultracet contains two medications: tramadol and acetaminophen. It helps treat moderate to moderately severe pain. Acetaminophen and tramadol contain an opioid-like medicine that can be habit-forming. Tramadol is an opioid analgesic. Acetaminophen is a drug that helps relieve pain and reduce fever. You can easily order Ultracet online if you have a prescription.
