Each Sustained Release tablet contains Tramadol Hcl 100 mg
Amadol (Tramadol HCl) has a dual mechanism of action within the CNS as it exerts agonistic properties at opiate receptors and interferes with the neurotransmitter reuptake of norepinephrine and serotonin.
It also binds weakly to µ opiate receptors, blocking the transmission of pain signals to the brain.
Amadol is used for the relief of back pain, moderate pain, neuropathic pain, orthopedic pain, severe pain and surgical pain.
For the treatment of moderate or severe pain, chronic conditions and cancer pain, the recommended dose is:
-Adults & adolescents (>16 years) 50-100 mg every 4-6 hours (not exceeding 400mg/day).
-Elderly patients: the maximum daily dose is 300mg given in divided doses.
Amadol should be used with caution on patients with or at risk of respiratory depression, patients with pre-existing seizure disorders, with G.I. diseases, with increased intracranial pressure or head trauma. Caution is needed in using Amadol with carbamazepine, quinidine, MAOI’s, phenothiazines, antidepressants, antipsychotics and general anaesthetics.
-Dose selection for an elderly patient should be cautions, reflecting the greater frequency of decreased hepatic, renal or cardiac function or presences of concomitant disease.
