Maxitram was first patented and sold for the management of pain in 1995. It is now a class C, schedule 3 controlled substance here in the UK; however, we have made it possible for you to buy Maxitram in the UK without the prior need for a prescription, from our online pharmacy. We have a range of treatment options which can help relieve the symptoms of acute and chronic pain. If pain is taking over your life, you may want to consider what your options are for the management of your condition. We will look into and discuss what kind of conditions are treated in more detail below.

What Maxitram is Used For

Maxitram 100 mg is used as pain relief when over the counter (OTC) medication such as paracetamol and ibuprofen are no longer effective enough for managing symptoms. It is used for moderate to severe acute pain including after injury or major surgery. It is also used for the management of long-term pain or chronic conditions which cause pain, as well as restless legs syndrome. The NHS also uses this and similar medications as a second-line treatment option for fibromyalgia, which is a type of nerve disorder which causes pain. There are a range of disorders which require management using opioid based medication, and if you are not sure whether it is the best option for you, you should seek professional advice.

Is Maxitram the Same as Tramadol?

Yes! Maxitram 50 mg and tramadol 50 mg contain the same active ingredient. The former is the branded version of the latter, which is the generic version. Branded medications are sometimes more expensive, and the increased cost is due to advertising and the money pharmaceutical companies invest in the development of the medication. Additionally, when a patent runs out, other pharmaceutical companies can produce the same medication and as they have not incurred the same up-front costs, they can offer it at a lower price. All of our medications are offered at an affordable price, and they have excellent track records for quality and efficacy.

How Does Maxitram Work?

Maxitram is an opioid based analgesic medication. Opioids are synthetic versions of opiates and other similar medications include morphine and codeine. They are agonists for opioid receptors in the brain and also target the noradrenergic and serotonergic pathways. Opioid receptors are a type of receptor called G protein-coupled receptors and there are many different types. It would be too complicated to explain exactly how they work, but essentially they synthesise and produce inhibitory neurotransmitters which subdue certain signals in the brain and reduce the sensation of pain. The targeted effects on the noradrenergic and serotonergic pathways prevent the re-uptake of noradrenalin and serotonin, which means they stay in your system for longer. It is thought that this helps with the physiological as well as psychological aspects of pain.

Before You Buy Maxitram

We have made it possible to buy tramadol in the UK without a prescription despite its controlled status. Before you decide to buy Maxitram online, you should consider whether there are other pain management techniques that could help you, particularly if you are living with a chronic condition. Depending on your disorder and the severity of your symptoms there may be gentle exercises or physiotherapy which could help. It is also advisable to use a range of medications such as OTC medicine as well as stronger painkillers. There are also some contraindications that you should be aware of which are associated with Maxitram 150 mg. You should not take it if you are taking other opioid medications as this can lead to an overdose. You should also be careful if you are taking other central nervous system depressants and avoid drinking too much alcohol. There are certain groups who should avoid opioids and you should consult your GP before taking them if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, if you have had addiction problems in the past, if you have kidney or liver disease. It also may not be as effective if you have genetic variation of the gene which codes for CYP2D6 enzymes, as this metabolises the drug.

How to Use Maxitram

Take 1 to 2 Maxitram 50 mg tablets in the morning, up to a maximum amount of 400 mg per day. If you are taking it throughout the day, you should make sure you space the doses evenly so that you do not take too much at once. If you forget to take a dose, do not take an extra one to make up for the missed one, but rather wait until your next dose is due. Do not crush or chew the tablets because this will affect the rate of absorption and it may be too quick. The exact dosage and schedule will vary from person to person, depending on the severity and nature of your condition. It is absorbed quickly and has a bioavailability of around 75%. It starts to take effect after around 1.5 hours, reaching peak concentration after 3 hours.

Maxitram Side Effects

All medication can cause side effects, and painkiller tablets such as Maxitram also have the potential to do so. Most of the common side effects are mild and go away after a short period of time. Side effects which affect more than 1 in 100 people include:

  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Tiredness
  • Dry mouth
  • Constipation
  • Sweating

Do not drive or use machinery when taking this medication, even if you do not feel very drowsy as it may impair your reaction time. Make sure that you stay well hydrated as sweating can cause water loss. Drinking plenty will also help with the dry mouth and constipation. Rarely, people experience serious side effects. Stop taking the medication immediately and call your GP if you experience any of the following:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Hypotension
  • Severe insomnia
  • Confusion
  • Hallucinations

Some people experience a severe allergic reaction, however this is extremely rare. Anaphylaxis is an emergency which requires immediate medical attention.
