Ultram drug description
Ultram is a prescription pain reliever to treat moderate to severe pain in adults. It relieves pain by acting on the central nervous system (C.N.S.).
- Tramadol extended-release formulations (Ultram E.R.) are typically for people who require pain relief around the clock for an extended period. They are not for minor aches and pains.

- Ultram has the potential to slow or stop your breathing, and it may become addictive. Addiction, overdose, or death can result from the misuse of this medicine, even in children or others who do not have a prescription.
- Ultram use during pregnancy can result in life-threatening withdrawal symptoms in the baby.
- Tramadol can have fatal side effects when combined with alcohol or other drugs that cause drowsiness or slow breathing.
