About CONTRAMAL DT 50MG TABLET

CONTRAMAL DT 50MG TABLET belongs to a class of drugs called opioid analgesics (pain killers). CONTRAMAL DT 50MG TABLET is primarily used to prevent and treat moderate to severe pain. Pain is an unpleasant sensation caused by an injury or illness. Pain may be acute (short term) or chronic (long term). It can be general (overall body pains) or localized (pain in a specific area of the body).
