TRAMAL® is a non narcotic pain reliever used to relieve moderate to severe pain. It belongs to the group of medicines called analgesics (pain relievers).

TRAMAL is available as tablets, capsules, oral drops and injections. TRAMAL works as a centrally acting analgesic. It provides pain relief by binding to two different types of receptors in the central nervous system.

TRAMAL is well tolerated. It acts quickly to allow effective management of moderate to severe pain. TRAMAL SR tablets are designed to release the pain reliever gradually over several hours.

TRAMAL has been available internationally for more than 25 years and in New Zealand TRAMAL has been prescribed by doctors for over 10 years.

TRAMAL is not usually addictive, although some cases have been reported this is rare.

TRAMAL is available only on a doctor’s prescription. Tramal is a fully funded medicine.
