Tramadol is a painkiller similar to opioid (narcotic) painkillers. These drugs will work directly on the brain and change the body's taste and response to pain. This drug is a strong drug that cannot be used carelessly and is only prescribed for moderate to severe pain. Because tramadol has properties similar to opioids, it can also be addictive / addictive, and stopping using this drug after long-term use and high doses can also cause withdrawal symptoms.
