Contramal Dt 50 MG Description

Contramal DT is a prescription medication primarily used to treat and prevent mild to moderate pain. Contramal Tablet contains Tramadol as its active ingredient that relieves pain due to arthritis, h

eadache or lower back pain, etc. Contramal DT belongs to a group of opioid analgesics that are essentially pain killers. Pain is caused due to certain receptors in the body, and it is an unpleasant sensation that can be triggered due to an injury or disease. Contramal Tablets can relieve general or localised pain. Contramal DT is generally given under the supervision of a healthcare provider and should not be self-administered at home. The dosage and frequency of the medication will be decided by the doctor depending on your symptoms and the severity of your condition. Contramal works like other opioids. It blocks pain signals from the brain and reduces pain perception. Some common side effects of the Contramal Tablet include dizziness, sleepiness, vomiting or dry mouth. If any of these side effects get worse or last for a longer time, consult a doctor. Consult your doctor before starting or stopping the medicine or even increasing its dosage.
