Tramadol is a centrally-acting atypical opioid analgesic with additional serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake-inhibiting effects used to treat moderate to moderately severe pain.
Tramadol is marketed as a racemic mixture of both R and S stereoisomers. This is because the two isomers complement each other’s analgesic activity. It is often combined with paracetamol as this is known to improve the efficacy of tramadol in relieving pain. Tramadol is an atypical opioid because it is a serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor of and, by itself, a fairly weak μ-opioid receptor agonist. Tramadol is metabolised to O-desmethyltramadol, which is a significantly more potent opioid with additional norepinephrine reuptake-inhibiting properties, making it analogous to tapentadol. The onset of pain relief, usually occurs, when taken as an immediate-release oral formulation, within about an hour.
