Tramadol Terror

in partiko •  5 months ago 

During the course of my day job (I deliver pharmaceuticals) I handle this drug daily... I wonder if they know the risks or if they blindly take it because their Doctor told them to do so?

Although tramadol isn’t as strong as some of the other opioid drugs (such as heroin), it can still cause some of the same problems and, like other opoid drugs, overdosing can kill.

Tramadol can depress breathing and may be risky for people with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Tramadol use has been linked with serotonin syndrome. This is a potentially life-threatening condition where the serotonin receptors are overstimulated. Serotonin syndrome can lead to high fever, rapid pulse, shivering, sweating, trembling, muscle twitches, agitation and confusion.

Pregnant women should not use tramadol as it can be toxic to the developing foetus.

If you have epilepsy you should only take tramadol with clear medical advice because of the known risks.
