Drugs In Breastfeeding And Ultram

      Ultram, marketed under the generic name of Tramadol hydrochloride, is an orally administered, analgesic drug that is used to reduce pain. It functions by binding with the opiate receptors present in the brain, spinal cord and gastrointestinal tract. Ultram blocks the uptake of nor epinephrine and serotonin in the body and modifies the pain messages sent to the brain.


       Ultram or Tramadol is available under two brand names that include Ultram and Ultram-ER. While Ultram is a white, capsule-shaped, film-coated 50 mg tablet, Ultram-ER is an extended release tramadol tablet available in 100 mg, 200 mg and 300 mg dosages.


       Ultram should never be used without consulting a doctor. Like any other medicine, there are various side effects of Ultram. Some of the side effects include agitation, anxiety, constipation, convulsive movements, diarrhea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, hallucinations, headache, indigestion, itching, nausea, nervousness, sweating, tremors, vomiting and weakness.  Extended use of Ultram can cause mental and physical addiction.


        Ultram should never be prescribed to pregnant women and women who are breastfeeding. According to available reports, administration of Ultram to such women can bring fundamental changes in the brain and cause serious damage to developing babies. Ultram has the tendency to pass through the placenta as well as appear in the breast milk. Breastfeeding needs to be discontinued if the usage of Ultram is essential.


        Also, Ultram should be avoided while using sleeping pills, narcotic pain relievers, psychotherapeutic drugs, anti-depressants and tranquilizers.
