Have you ever spent a wonderful day in the sun at the beach and later in the evening you experience excruciating pain in your ear? This happens when you develop an ear infection resulting from contaminated water in the ear. This infection is referred to as 'swimmer's ear' and it presents in the outer ear canal causing intense pain which tramadol 50 mg can relieve.
A 50 mg tramadol dosage will help to relieve the pain. This medication which is sold under the brand name Ultram, is used to treat pain after having surgery, dental pain, pain caused by cuts and bruises or fracture bones and it also helps to relieve the symptoms of fibromyalgia, headaches and lower back pain.
You may experience side effects such as dizziness, a dry mouth and dizziness when you take tramadol tablets dose but these side effects will lessen as you acclimatise to being on the medication.
As an opiate, tramadol hydrochloride works to relieve moderate to moderately severe pain. Pain stems from a general activation of the central nervous system (CNS) and occurs when specific nerves - known as nociceptors - detect damage to cells and/or tissues. This pain impulse is transmitted from the site of transduction to the spinal cord and finally to the brain, all via the nociceptors.
Pain can arise from several different conditions and is often the most common complaint of a patient. Colds, sinus infections and allergic reactions can cause a blockage of the tubes in the middle ear resulting in ear infections. Fluid build-up and subsequent infection is the most commonly reported type of ear infection, especially amongst younger children.
Otitis media (OM) is a group of inflammatory diseases, which affect the middle ear. OM is prevalent amongst minors in the United Kingdom, so much so that 50% of children are reported to have been affected by the infection within the first year of their birth.
Ear infections, although they are common amongst children, is also a complication experienced by adults. Unlike childhood OM, ear infections in adults frequently tend to be signs of a more severe health issue. Using tramadol for pain relief, from ear infections and other ailments, is an effective treatment and is often most effectual when the first signs of discomfort are experienced, rather than waiting for the pain symptoms to worsen.
Tramadol functions by binding to receptors and hence blocking the pain messages travelling through nerve endings. The pain from ear infections can range from mild to intense and can also be accompanied by ear pressure (a sensation of fullness within the ear).
This opioid analgesic is not only for relief of ear infection pain. You can also use tramadol tablets for pain associated with many conditions and diseases such as:
The National Health Service (NHS) recommends using tramadol for pain associated with fibromyalgia as a second-line treatment. Tramadol is considered to be one-tenth as potent as morphine and equally as potent as codeine. This makes it an optimal pain treatment, with a balance between high level effectiveness and minimal unwanted effects. The analgesic effect typically lasts 6 hours and varies according to a person's genetics.
Tramadol is available in various formulations such as:
*Check available options when purchasing.
Tramadol tablets can be found as extended-release (ER) and immediate-release (IR) formulations. ER forms of tramadol were approved for use, by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in September 2005 and are effective for pain relief over a prolonged period.
The IR formulations provide immediate analgesia, in comparison to the around-the-clock pain relief brought about by the slow-release form of tramadol. Fast-acting formulations of Tramadol would be best suited for the relief of pain from bacterial and viral infections, such as those of the middle ear, and usually work within 30-60 minutes of use.
ER tramadol formulations typically have longer onset of action and are for conditions, like fibromyalgia and arthritis. These slow-acting forms of tramadol can have pain relief effects lasting up from 12 to 24 hours.
Fast-acting tramadol tablets for pain relief should be used on an 'as-needed' basis and every 4 to 6 hours. The advised dosage for this time-period is 50-100 mg of the active ingredient and the total dosage should not exceed 400 mg a day.
The initial dose ought to be 25 mg per day and this may be increased by 25-50 mg every three days, until the recommended tramadol dosage is acquired. Extended-release forms of tramadol may be used as a 100 mg daily dosage. This can be increased by 100 mg every five days and should not exceed the maximum daily dose of 300 mg a day.
When changing over from immediate-release formulations to extended-release tramadol, the total dose administered per day should be rounded down to the nearest 100 mg. There are not many specific requirements when using tramadol. In fact, this analgesic can be taken before or after meals. The slow-acting formulations, however, should be swallowed whole and not chewed or crushed.
Dosage: The efficacy of tramadol depends largely on the amount of medication taken. The most effective dosage of tramadol can be determined by starting at the lowest initial dose and increasing this until the desired pain relief effects are attained.
Using tramadol for pain relief excessively in the long-term can result in developing tolerance to the medication. This is rare side effect, especially since tramadol is a synthetic opioid and not a natural variant, which poses higher risks. To minimise risks patients should adhere to their correct dosage and planned course.
The route of administration: the type of tramadol formulation can affect the onset of the therapeutic effects of the medication. For example, tramadol injections or drops are absorbed at a faster rate than the tablet forms.
The medication should also be administered when the first symptoms of pain are experienced because as the symptoms worsen the benefits of the medication may not be as effective. Using the immediate-release forms of tramadol will assist in experiencing pain relief when the first signs of discomfort occur, as opposed to waiting for symptoms to worsen.
Genetic profile: An individual's metabolic rate can be affected by their age, diet, body composition and genetics etc. The rate at which the medication is processed in the body is individualised as every person's body and genes are different.
A slow metabolism may increase the time taken for tramadol to be broken down in the body. Furthermore, individuals with specific variants of 'CYP2D6 enzymes' might not produce adequate amounts of desmetramadol, which is the active metabolite required for effective pain relief.
Interactions with other medications: The effects of tramadol can be influenced when using medications with similar mechanisms of action. Tramadol acts as a serotonin-norephinephrine reuptake inhibitor and can therefore have possible interactions with other serotonergic medications.
The similar mechanisms of actions of these medications may render some serotonergic antagonist anti-emetic medications less effective. Some interactions can also be harmful; hence caution should be exercised.
