Tramadol and Paracetamol

Tramacet (tramadol and paracetamol) tablets are a popular combination painkiller which are prescribed to patients when regular painkillers such as ibuprofen or aspirin are not effective at providing pain relief. Tramadol can also be combined with ibuprofen or aspirin which is similar to the tramadol/paracetamol combination. Tramadol/paracetamol 37.5 mg / 325 mg is sold under various other popular brand names such as Contramal, Dolcet, Doreta, Ixprim, Kolibri, and Zaldiar to name a few.

Let's take a closer look at the mechanism of action, along with the duration of action of tramadol and paracetamol, and how they both gel together perfectly creating a powerful analgesic often referred to by its most popular brand name, Tramacet.

Paracetamol: Paracetamol is a common over the counter (OTC) painkiller which is used to treat a multitude of aches and pains such as headaches. Paracetamol is also known by the name acetaminophen and generally comes in a tablet form, but gel capsules are available from some brands like Tylenol. Paracetamol works relatively quickly with effects being felt within 30 minutes. The duration of action of this medication is 3 to 4 hours.
Tramadol: Tramadol is a strong, synthetic opioid painkiller which comes as tablets / capsules but is also used in hospitals in a liquid drop format and this painkiller can even be injected (by a doctor). When regular painkillers such as paracetamol, ibuprofen or aspirin are not providing sufficient pain relief a doctor may decide to prescribe tramadol. Tramadol also starts to work on the body within around 30 minutes, but the effects can last for up to 6 hours with this medication

Can you Take Paracetamol with Tramadol?

We often get emails and calls from people asking, "can I take paracetamol with tramadol?". Since you can buy branded medications such as Tramacet which contains tramadol/paracetamol 37.5 mg / 325 mg we think it is safe to say that you can take tramadol and paracetamol together.

While paracetamol is considered to be a much weaker painkiller than tramadol, it works on the body in a different way and is more effective than tramadol at providing relief from certain aches and pains such as a headache.

How to Take Tramadol and Paracetamol

Tramacet tramadol and paracetamol 37.5 mg / 325 mg can be taken with or without food. And should be swallowed down with an adequate amount of water. The tablets come with a score on the side so that they can easily be split into two smaller dosages, to ease consumption for people that have trouble swallowing large tablets. In elderly adults (over the age of 65 years) it may sometimes be advised to start on a smaller dosage of tramadol and paracetamol which is normally achieved by splitting the tramadol/paracetamol 37.5 mg / 325 mg into two smaller doses each half the strength.

It is generally advised to stick with the brands which have carefully measured out dosages of each medication already combined for your convenience, but it is possible to consume each ingredient separately for the same pain-relieving effects.

Dosages should be taken as needed to relieve pain, however, no more than 300 mg of tramadol and 2,600 mg of paracetamol should be taken in a 24-hour period. Taking more than the maximum dosage can increase the chances of side effects occurring.

While all medicines are specially formulated and designed to work on the body in a particular way, in some cases some people may experience side effects. While everyone will not experience these side effects it is important to be aware of any possible side effects. Because of the lower dosage in Tramacet (tramadol 37.5 mg rather than tramadol 50 mg) the chances of experiencing any side effects at all are greatly reduced.

Common side effects:

  • Headache.
  • Dizziness.
  • Feeling sleepy or tired.

Rare Side Effects:

  • Blurred vision.
  • Changes in mood.
  • Shallow breathing.

This is not a full list of possible side effects and more comprehensive information can always be found on the patient information leaflet which comes along with the medication. If you do experience any unwanted side effects, you are advised to seek immediate medical assistance.
