Ultram Overdose

Ultram is the brand name of the generic drug Tramadol (TRA-ma-doll). Ultram is an analgesic used to treat or prevent pain. Ultram is not a non steroidal anti inflammatory pain reliever. Ultram is not classified as a narcotic. Ultram binds to certain opiod pain receptors in the body by blocking the reuptake of the neuro chemicals norepinephrine and serotonin, it modifies the pain message which results in pain relief. Introduced in 1995, no control was recommended based on review of its uncontrolled use in 40 other countries. However, once released in the U.S., abuse became readily apparent. Ultram is addictive. Large doses can interfere with the ability to breathe, especially if taken with alcohol.

An Ultram overdose happens when you consume more Ultram than your body can safely handle. Ultram abusers are constantly flirting with the risk of an overdose, and the difference between the high they're seeking and serious injury or death is often quite small. An overdose of Ultram can be fatal. If you suspect an overdose, seek emergency medical treatment immediately.
