They are designed to treat moderate to severe pain. In both acute and chronic variations of pain. Tramadol is useful for treating painful diagnostic or therapeutic measures. Pengesic is an opioid analgesic. It works by binding with stereospecific receptors within the central nervous system(CNS) to alter any processes that are affecting the perception of the pain, as well as the emotional response to it. Although the precise sites and mechanism of action have not been fully determined, alterations in release of various neurotransmitters from afferent nerves sensitive to painful stimuli may be partially responsible for the analgesic effects. When this medication is used as an adjunct to anaesthesia, analgesic action may provide dose-related protection against haemodynamic responses to surgical stress. It is readily absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and is excreted mainly through urine.
It is generally contraindicated in the following conditions:
- respiratory depression, especially in the presence of cyanosis and excessive bronchial secretion.
