Tramadol, sold under the brand name Ultram among others, is an opioid pain medication used to treat moderate to moderately severe pain. When taken by mouth in an immediate-release formulation, the onset of pain relief usually begins within an hour. It is also available by injection. It may be sold in combination with paracetamol (acetaminophen) or as longer-acting formulations.

As is typical of opioids, common side effects include constipation, itchiness, and nausea. Serious side effects may include seizures, increased risk of serotonin syndrome, decreased alertness, and drug addiction. A change in dosage may be recommended in those with kidney or liver problems. It is not recommended in those who are at risk of suicide or in those who are pregnant. While not recommended in women who are breastfeeding, those who take a single dose should not generally stop breastfeeding. Tramadol is converted in the liver to O-desmethyltramadol (desmetramadol), an opioid with a stronger affinity to the μ-opioid receptor. Tramadol is also a serotonin–norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI).

Tramadol was patented in 1963 and launched under the name “Tramal” in 1977 by the West German pharmaceutical company Grünenthal GmbH. In the mid-1990s, it was approved in the United Kingdom and the United States. It is available as a generic medication and marketed under many brand names worldwide. In 2018, it was the 25th most commonly prescribed medication in the United States, with more than 24 million prescriptions.

This pre-detox Tramadol withdrawal period can last up to 24 hours, as medical personnel determines both the patient’s general medical condition and drug history.


Detoxification of the patient’s body from Tramadol begins after the pre-detox period ends. Medically assisted or tapered withdrawal from Tramadol can take up to a few weeks to complete.

Rapid Detox from Tramadol


Rapid detox from Tramadol is a controversial topic and one that is unlikely to be accepted by everyone for its positive uses. It is a concept that has helped individuals addicted to Tramadol and other drugs kick the habit and gain the help they need to live a healthier lifestyle.


A patient undergoing a rapid detox from Tramadol is put under anesthesia for up to six hours. During this time, an opioid antagonist drug such as naltrexone is used to remove the Tramadol from the patient’s body. Rapid detox can alleviate some of the more distressing symptoms of Tramadol withdrawal.


The Tramadol rapid detox method is used to stop a patient from feeling the devastating effects of Tramadol withdrawal. Sedating the patient and putting them under anesthesia allows them to “sleep” through the initial heavy Tramadol withdrawal and detox process. The hope is that after the rapid detox process, the patient will wake up with their body completely clean of Tramadol. The remainder of the withdrawal process will be minimal enabling the person to get on with the rehab process. Throughout rapid detox, the patient is monitored to ensure safety.

Tramadol withdrawal can take weeks to fully complete. However, rapid detox from Tramadol can take only a few days to a week at most.

For most Tramadol addicts, the biggest barrier of attending rehab is withdrawal. The pain and distress Tramadol withdrawal can have on a person can drive them back to using.
