Tramadol

Tramadol

Tramadol binds to opioid receptors in the brain, providing pain relief by re-communicating the brain’s response to the nervous system and allowing the chemicals norepinephrine and serotonin to linger for a longer than normal period, which further helps to block pain signals. The drug is similar to its opioid analgesic cousins morphine and hydrocodone.
