What is Ultracet?
Ultracet®, generically tramadol and acetaminophen, is a centrally acting analgesic that prescribed to treat moderate to moderately severe pain on a short term basis. Ultracet® affects the central nervous system and affects the way the brain senses pain.
Is Ultracet addictive?
Using Ultracet® on a long term basis has serious consequences and it should not be used for more than 5 days. Long term use of Ultracet® is increasingly associated with physical dependence and withdrawal syndrome. Within a few weeks of consistently taking Ultracet®, the body adjusts to the presence of the drug and a tolerance develops. As a tolerance to Ultracet® develops, the body requires more and more Ultracet® to achieve pain relief. Taking higher doses of Ultracet® can increase the risk of experiencing uncomfortable side effects.
Ultracet® is a very powerful drug that the body may become physically dependent upon. If a person no longer wishes to continue taking Ultracet or wants to discontinue taking the drug due to its side effects, medical supervision is necessary to prevent withdrawal symptoms.
