> THERAPEUTIC INDICATION
TRACEDOL is indicated for the symptomatic treatment of moderate to severe pain.
The use of TRACEDOL should be limited to patients whose moderate to severe pain requires treatment with a combination of paracetamol and tramadol.
TRACEDOL is intended for use in adults and adolescents 12 years of age and older.
> DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Always take this medicine strictly as directed by your doctor. If you are not sure, consult your doctor or pharmacist.
It is advisable to take TRACEDOL for as short a time as possible.
TRACEDOL is not suitable for children under the age of 12.
The dose should be adjusted according to the intensity of your pain and your personal sensitivity to pain. In general, the lowest dose that relieves pain should be taken.
The recommended starting dose for adults and adolescents over 12 years of age, unless otherwise prescribed by your doctor, is 2 effervescent tablets.
Additional doses may be given as required; follow your doctor’s prescription.
The interval between doses should be at least 6 hours.
Do not take more than 8 effervescent tablets of TRACEDOL per day.
Do not take TRACEDOL more often than your doctor has prescribed.
In elderly patients (over 75 years of age), the elimination of tramadol may be delayed. In this case, your doctor may advise you to take it more often.
Severe liver or kidney disease (hepatic/renal failure)/patients on dialysis
Patients with severe liver and/or kidney failure should not take TRACEDOL. If you have mild to moderate insufficiency, your doctor may recommend that you take TRACEDOL less frequently.
How to take it
Effervescent tablets are for oral use. The effervescent tablets should be dissolved in a glass of water.
If you feel that the effect of TRACEDOL is too strong (e.g. you feel very drowsy or have difficulty breathing) or too weak (e.g. insufficient pain relief), contact your doctor.
