Important Information about Tramadol
Tramadol is a strong painkiller that is well tolerated by many patients. However, it should not be taken by anyone who has been addicted to drugs or alcohol, or attempted suicide.
Before you buy Tramadol online, you need to consider if it is right for you and disclose your current health conditions and the medications you take via our doctor’s questionnaire.
Tramadol should not be taken together with alcohol, recreational drugs, narcotic pain medicine, sedatives, or tranquilizers. Tramadol is for oral use only. Do not crush the tablet and sniff the powder or mix it with liquid to inject it. Inhaling (snorting) or injecting tramadol can cause life-threatening side effects and death.
