Treatment and Therapy - Pain Medication
Tramadol is a pain medication prescribed to treat moderate-to-severe acute pain. Its effectiveness in treating chronic pain is still being studied. It has properties similar to both opioids (narcotics) and antidepressants. Tramadol reduces pain by interfering with pain signals to the brain (like an opioid) and by affecting neurotransmitters (like an antidepressant).
