About TRAMADOL+PARACETAMOL

PARACETAMOL+TRAMADOL belongs to the group of painkillers and analgesics used short-term to relieve moderate to severe pain. Pain is a sensation that occurs in response to external injury, stress, or infection and travels as an impulse through body cells, producing an unpleasant feeling and alerting the body to act.

PARACETAMOL+TRAMADOL contains Tramadol and Paracetamol. Tramadol targets pain receptors in the central nervous system. It acts by blocking the nerve signals responsible for pain. Paracetamol acts as an analgesic by inhibiting the release of chemical mediators that cause pain. Tramadol and paracetamol, in combination, have a faster onset of action and provide quick relief from the pain. Altogether, they effectively reduce the pain.
