Buy Tramadol Without Prescription

Tramadol HCL 50 mg, generally called a pseudo-opioid, is known to be the most effective drug to treat patients suffering from moderate to acute chronic pain. When common chronic pain-related drugs like oxycodone, morphine and hydrocodone (generally called the classic opioids) fail to bring relief from neuropathic pain (nerve pain), this drug is said to do wonders to the patient by providing him or her with instant relief from pain.

This drug is actually an oral medication that can be taken only after a legal prescription from a medical practitioner. Each tablet contains 50 mg of the dose along with magnesium stearate, polysorbate 80, titanium dioxide and many other inactive ingredients. Therefore, Tramadol HCL 50 mg is the most commonly found dosage of this drug. How does the medicine function? This drug functions by interacting with some special locations in the brain and the spinal cord. These special locations are referred to as opioid receptors. Due to this interaction with these receptors, the medicine blocks any transmission of the pain-related signals that are sent by the nerves to the brain. Because no pain signals reach the brain, no neuropathic pain is experienced by the person.

When any person approaches a medical practitioner with acute neuropathic pain, the practitioner under normal conditions prescribes one tablet of Tramadol HCL 50 mg to be eaten after every 4-6 hours, till the time the person experiences pain. This prescription generally lasts for about 1-2 months. Prolonged consumption of the drug is reported to cause chemical dependence. After a person stops taking the medicine, he or she starts experiencing some withdrawal symptoms such as insomnia, anxiety, nausea, sweating, diarrhea, shaking, and nasal congestion, among others.

Apart from treating nerve pain, this medicine can also be used as a very effective anti-hypertensive in case other drugs fail to yield positive results.

In addition to these withdrawal symptoms, some other side effects of this medicine comprise constipation, nausea, drowsiness, headache, muscle pain, lower blood pressure, etc. Severe side effects include respiratory depression, which is a life-threatening state of the body where in the brain fails to regulate the breathing mechanism of the body. Any person who potentially has a strong history of any kind of head injuries, stomach, kidney or liver problems, seizures, epilepsy, drug abuse, depression, or respiratory depression, he or she is strongly recommended to opt for any other drug to treat neuropathic pain, except Tramadol HCL 50 mg.
