Tramadol (Generic Ultram) belongs to a class of drugs called opioid analgesics, and acts as a narcotic-like pain reliever in patients who are experiencing moderate to moderately severe pain. Tramadol is also available in an extended-release form, which is used to help manage chronic, continuous pain. Tramadol works by attaching to receptors in the brain to change how your body feels and responds to pain.
Tramadol is the generic version of the brand Ultram, and requires a prescription. You can buy generic tramadol at Blink Health for a discounted price.
Because of its habit-forming nature tramadol is a controlled substance in all 50 U.S. states, meaning it can only be refiled up to five times within a six month period after the date on which the prescription was written before a new prescription is needed.
All FDA-approved generics must have the same strength, dosage form, safety and effectiveness as their brand-name counterparts. All generic medications sold through Blink Health are FDA-approved.
