Ultram (Tramadol) drug Addiction
In order to explain Rapid Ultram Detox, first, we would like to explain the Ultram opiate drug. In the United States Ultram (tramadol) is not a controlled substance. It is considered a non-narcotic pain reliever and even tough it is known to bind to opioid receptors its exact mechanism of action is unknown. It does inhibit norepinephrine / serotonin re-uptake much like antidepressants as well as the opioid receptors and is used to treat moderate to severe pain. Even though it is so easily prescribed in the US, it is so easy to become dependent on Ultram, so much so that in fact, recently some Middle Eastern countries have banned and confiscated the drug.
In the United States, the pharmaceutical companies have been successful in persuading the FDA in not scheduling Ultram as a non-controlled substance. Its mode of action is often described as “unknown”, even though it is already well know that it acts on ־¼u receptors just like any other opiate drug. It is also well known that increases both serotonin and norepinephrine at the receptor level.
In May 2009, the United States Food and Drug Administration issued a warning letter to Johnson & Johnson, alleging that a manufacturer’s promotional website had “overstated the efficacy” of the drug, and “minimized the serious risks”. The company which originally produced Ultram (tramadol), the German pharmaceutical company Grֳ¼nenthal GmbH, was the one supposedly guilty of “minimizing” its addictive nature, although it allegedly showed little abuse liability in preliminary tests. The 2010 PDR contains warnings from the manufacturer, which were not present in previous years. The warnings include more compelling language regarding “the addictive potential of tramadol, the possibility of difficulty breathing while on the medication”, a new list of more serious side effects, and a notice that tramadol is “not to be used in place of opiate medications for addicts”. Tramadol is also “not to be used in efforts to wean addict patients from opiate drugs, nor to be used to manage long-term opiate addiction”.
