Tramadol 37.5 mg + Paracetamol 325 mg
Tramadol is a centrally acting synthetic analgesic compound whose analgesic prbfile can be attributed to the
binding of parent and 0-demethylated (M1) metabolite to p.-opioid receptors as well as the weak inhibition of
neuronal re-uptake of noradrenaline and serotonin.
Paracetamol also has centrally acting analgesic effects.
Tramadol is well absorbed after oral administration, reaching peak activity in 2 to 3 hours. The mean absolute
bioavailability of a single 100 mg oral dose is approximately 75%, increasing to approximately 90% with
multiple dosing. Oral absorption of paracetamol following administration of Tramace-P gives a peak plasma
concentration of paracetamol within one hour and is not affected by co-administration with tramadol.
Tramadol and paracetamol are both extensively metabolised in the liver. Approximately 30% of tramadol is
excreted unchanged in the urine. Tramadol and its metabolites are eliminated primarily by the kidney. The
plasma elimination half-lives of tramadol and its M1 metabolite are approximately 6 and 7 hours respectively.
Paracetamol is eliminated from the body primarily by formation of glucuronide and sulfate conjugates in a
dose-dependent manner. The half-life of paracetamol is about 2-3 hours in adults. Less than 9% of
paracetamol is excreted unchanged in the urine.
Tramoget is indicated for the short-term treatment (i.e. three days or less) of mild to moderate ac a.e pain.
