DRUG STUDY DRUG Generic Name: Tramadol Brand Name: Ultram, Ultram ER INDICATIONS Carbamazepine (Tegretol, Tegretol XR , Equetro,

Carbatrol) reduces the effect of tramadol by increasing its inactivation in the body. Quinidine (Quinaglute, Quinidex) reduces the inactivation of tramadol, thereby increasing the concentration of tramadol by 50%-60%. Combining tramadol with monoamine oxidase inhibitors (for example, Parnate) or CONTRAINDICATIONS Tramadol may increase central nervous system and respiratory depression when combined with alcohol, anesthetics, narcotics, tranquilizers or sedative hypnotics. ACTIONS Tramadol is used in the management of moderate to moderately severe pain. Extended release tablets are used for moderate to moderately severe chronic pain in adults who require continuous treatment for an extended period. SIDE EFFECTS Tramadol is generally well tolerated, and side effects are usually transient. Commonly reported side effects include nausea, constipation, dizziness, headache, drowsiness, and vomiting. Less commonly reported side effects include itching, sweating, dry mouth, diarrhea, rash, visual disturbances, and vertigo. Some patients who received tramadol have reported NURSING RESPONSIBILITIES Assess type, location, and intensity of pain before and 23 hr (peak) after administration. Assess BP & RR before and periodically during administration. Respiratory depression has not occurred with recommended doses. Assess bowel function routinely. Prevention of constipation should be instituted with increased intake of fluids and bulk and with laxatives to minimize constipating effects. Assess previous analgesic history. Tramadol is not recommended for patients dependent on opioids or who have previously received opioids for more than 1 wk; may cause opioid withdrawal symptoms. Prolonged use may lead to

seizures. Abrupt withdrawal of tramadol may result in anxiety, sweating, insomnia, rigors, pain, nausea, diarrhea, tremors, and hallucinations.

physical and psychological dependence and tolerance, although these may be milder than with opioids. This should not prevent patient from receiving adequate analgesia. Most patients who receive tramadol for pain d not develop psychological dependence. If tolerance develops, changing to an opioid agonist may be required to relieve pain. Tramadol is considered to provide more analgesia than codeine 60 mg but less than combined aspirin 650mg/codeine 60 mg for acute postoperative pain. Monitor patient for seizures. May occur within recommended dose range. Risk increased with higher doses and inpatients taking antidepressants (SSRIs, tricyclics, or Mao inhibitors), opioid analgesics, or other durgs that decrese the seizure threshold. Overdose may cause

respiratory depression and seizures. Naloxone (Narcan) may reverse some, but not all, of the symptoms of overdose. Treatment should be symptomatic and supportive. Maintain adequate respiratory exchange. Encourage patient to cough and breathe deeply every 2 hr to prevent atelactasis and pneumonia.

therefore, it is not recommended in women of childbearing potential unless there is imperative medical evidence that the benefits can be expected to outweigh the considered risks. Pregnant psoriatic patients should not receive this drug. Concomitant use of other drugs that has a hepatotoxic potential (including alcohol) should be avoided.

principal mechanism is through competitive inhibition of the enzyme folic acid reductase. For the cells to proliferate and replicate, folic acid must be reduced to tetrahydrofolic acid by this enzyme (folic acid reductase) in the process of DNA synthesis and cellular replication. With the dministration of Methotrexat e, the reduction of folic acid to

To prevent hematologic toxicity (platelet levels are decreased) salicylates, NSAIDs, phenytoin, tetracycline and chlorampenicol should be avoided.

tetrahydrofolic acid is inhibited thus, interfering with the tissue cell reproduction. Because of this function, death of rapidly replicating cells (e.g. cancer cells, choriocarcino ma, leukemia, carcinoma in different body parts and ectopic pregnancy) specifically the malignant ones is made possible. It also has an immunosuppr essive activity.
