Tramadol hydrochloride - the active ingredient in Tramadol - is an analgesic (analgesic) from the group of opioids, which acts on the central nervous system. Its pain relief reaches it by its effect on certain nerve cells of the spinal cord and the brain.
Tramadol are used to treat moderate to severe pain.
Tramadol should not be taken,
If you are allergic to tramadol hydrochloride or any of the other ingredients of this medicine (listed in section 6).
in acute poisoning with alcohol, sleeping pills, analgesics or other psychotropic drugs (drugs with effects on mood and emotional life).
if you are taking MAO inhibitors (medicines to treat depression) or if you have taken drops within the last 14 days prior to treatment with Tramal (see "Taking Tramadol with other medicines").
if you have epilepsy and your seizures can not be adequately controlled by treatment.
as a substitute for drug withdrawal.
Warnings and Precautions:
Please talk to your doctor or pharmacist before you use Tramadol,
if you think you are dependent on other painkillers (opioids) or have already been sensitive to opioids in the past.
if you have a mental disorder (if you feel close to fainting).
when you are in shock (cold sweat may be an indication).
if you have conditions with increased intracranial pressure (possibly after a head injury or brain disease).
if you have difficulty breathing.
if you are prone to epilepsy or seizures.
if you have liver or kidney problems.
Epileptic seizures have been reported in patients taking tramadol at the recommended dose. The risk could increase if the recommended maximum daily dose (400 mg) is exceeded.
Please note that Tramadol can lead to a physical and emotional dependence. With prolonged use, the effect of Tramadol may decrease, so that higher doses (amounts of the drug) must be taken (tolerance development). Patients who are prone to drug abuse or have drug dependence should therefore only receive Tramal treatment at short notice and under the strictest medical supervision.
If a patient discontinues tramadol therapy, especially after prolonged use, a gradual dose reduction is recommended to avoid withdrawal symptoms.
Please also tell your doctor if any of these problems occur while you are taking Tramadol, or if this information was previously available to you.
Taking Tramadol with other medicines
Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking, have recently taken or might take any other medicines.
Tramadol should not be taken with MAO inhibitors (certain medicines used to treat depression).
The analgesic effect of Tramadol can be reduced and the duration of action shortened if you take medicines containing any of the following active ingredients.
Carbamazepine (for epileptic seizures)
Ondansetron (for nausea)
Your doctor will tell you if and if so in what dosage Tramadol may be taken.
The risk of side effects increases when you

Pregnancy, breast-feeding and fertility
If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, think you may be pregnant or are planning to have a baby, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking this medicine.
There is limited information on the safety of tramadol hydrochloride in pregnancy. Therefore, you should not take Tramadol during pregnancy.
Prolonged use during pregnancy may lead to withdrawal symptoms in the newborn (the neonate may experience a change in the respiratory rate).
Your doctor will therefore only prescribe Tramadol during pregnancy if you have to.
Taking tramadol hydrochloride while breast-feeding is generally not recommended. Tramadol hydrochloride is excreted in breast milk in very small amounts. With a single dose, an interruption of breastfeeding is usually not required.

Always take this medicine exactly as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
The dose should be adjusted to the intensity of your pain and to your individual pain sensation. In general, the smallest possible dose, with which freedom from pain is achieved, should be taken.
Do not take more than 160 drops (for example, 8 times 20 drops) (equivalent to 400 mg tramadol hydrochloride) daily, unless your doctor has ordered it accordingly.
Unless otherwise prescribed by the doctor, the usual dose is:
Adults and adolescents from 12 years
The usual dose of Tramadol in the dropper bottle is 20 to 40 drops (equivalent to 50 to 100 mg of tramadol hydrochloride).
The effect lasts about 4 to 8 hours, depending on the intensity of the pain.
For moderately severe pain, 50 mg tramadol hydrochloride (20 drops) should be administered. If there is no adequate pain relief within 30 to 60 minutes, another 50 mg can be administered. For severe pain conditions, 100 mg tramadol hydrochloride (40 drops) may be given as an initial dose.
Children from 1 year
The usual single dose Tramadol in the dropper bottle for infants from 1 year of age with the dropper is 4 to 8 drops per 10 kg of body weight (corresponding to about 1-2 mg of tramadol hydrochloride per kg of body weight). You will find detailed information about the body weight dose at the end of this leaflet.
In general, the lowest effective dose is chosen to achieve freedom from pain.
Daily doses of 8 mg tramadol hydrochloride per kg body weight or 400 mg tramadol hydrochloride (whichever is lower) should not be exceeded.
For the use of Tramadol in children it is recommended to administer the solution by means of a dropper bottle and not with the aid of a bottle with a dosing pump in order to allow an exact body weight related dosage.
In elderly patients (over 75 years), excretion of tramadol hydrochloride may be delayed. If this applies to you, your doctor may recommend that you prolong the dose interval.
Severe liver or kidney disease (insufficiency) / dialysis patients
If you have liver and / or kidney failure, your doctor may recommend prolonging the dose interval.
How and when should you take Tramadol?
Oral drops (for oral use).
Take the drops with some liquid or on a sugar cube. A detailed description of the use of the dropper bottle can be found at the end of this leaflet. You can take Tramadol on an empty stomach or with a meal.
How long should you take Tramadol?
You should not take Tramadol for longer than absolutely necessary. If, depending on the type and severity of the disease, a longer lasting pain treatment seems to be necessary, your doctor will check at regular intervals (possibly by taking breaks), if you should continue to use Tramadol and if so in which dose.
Please talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you think the effects of Tramadol are too strong or too weak.
If you take more Tramadol than you should
Inadvertently, if you accidentally take an additional dose of Tramadol, it will not have a negative effect. Further intake of Tramadol should be made as prescribed.
Ingestion of very high doses can lead to narrow pupils, vomiting, drop in blood pressure, accelerated heartbeat, circulatory collapse, impaired consciousness, even coma (deep unconsciousness), epileptiform seizures and difficulty breathing, including respiratory arrest. Immediately call a doctor for help when these signs appear!
If you forget to take Tramadol
If you forget to take Tramadol, your pain may recur. Do not take the double dose, but continue as before.
If you stop taking Tramadol
If you stop treatment with Tramadol or stop prematurely, this will lead to a recurrence of the pain. If you would like to discontinue the treatment because of unpleasant side effects, please contact your doctor.
In general, stopping treatment with Tramadol will have no after-effects. In rare cases, however, patients treated with Tramadol for extended periods of time may feel uncomfortable when treatment is stopped abruptly. You may feel restless, anxious, nervous or shaky. You may be hyperactive, have difficulty sleeping or have gastrointestinal discomfort. Very few people may experience panic attacks, cognitive disorders, abnormalities such as itching, tingling and numbness and tinnitus. Other unusual disorders affecting the central nervous system, such as Confusion, delusions, disturbance of the ego experience (depersonalization), disturbance in the perception of reality (derealization) and persecution mania (paranoia) were observed very rarely. If any of these symptoms occur after stopping treatment, contact your doctor.
If you have any further questions on the use of the medicine, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Diazepam is a medicine used to treat anxiety and tension in the benzodiazepine group.
Diazepam ratiopharm® 5 mg is used
for the symptomatic treatment of acute and chronic tension, agitation and anxiety. The use of Diazepam in sleep disorders requiring treatment, which are caused by anxiety, tension and arousal, is only justified if at the same time the diazepam effects are desired during the daytime. Note: Not all states of tension, excitation and anxiety require drug therapy. Often they are expressions of physical or mental illness and can be influenced by other measures or by a therapy of the underlying disease.
for reassurance and preparation (premedication) before surgical and diagnostic interventions or afterwards (postoperative medication).
for the treatment of conditions with increased muscle tension (increased muscle tone).
Diazepam should not be taken
if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to diazepam or other benzodiazepines or any of the other ingredients of Diazepam ratiopharm 5 mg
Dependent disease in history (alcohol, drugs, drugs)
in certain forms of severe, pathological muscle weakness (myasthenia gravis)
Take special care with Diazepam
acute poisoning with alcohol, sleeping and painkillers as well as preparations for the treatment of mental and emotional disorders (neuroleptics, antidepressants and lithium)
Disorders of the ordered interaction of muscle groups (spinal and cerebellar ataxias)
acute increase in intraocular pressure (narrow-angle glaucoma, cataract)
severe liver damage, eg. B. Jaundice with biliary congestion (cholestatic jaundice)
Respiratory dysfunction in sleep (sleep apnea syndromes)
Patients with organic brain changes
Circulatory and respiratory weakness (chronic obstructive respiratory insufficiency)
Prolonged intake is recommended for blood and liver function.
This medicine contains a "benzodiazepine". Benzodiazepines are medicines used to treat certain conditions associated with restlessness, anxiety, inner tension or insomnia. When using benzodiazepines there is a danger of training or promoting dependency. Even with daily intake over a few weeks, the danger of a dependency development is given. This applies not only to the misuse of particularly high doses, but also to the therapeutic dose range. To minimize this risk, you are advised to pay close attention to the following:
Benzodiazepines have been created solely for the treatment of morbid conditions and may only be taken on medical advice.
At the latest after 4 weeks of taking the doctor should decide whether a treatment must be continued. Continuous, longer-term intake should be avoided as it can lead to dependency. Taking it without a doctor's prescription reduces your chances of helping you with these medicines.
Never increase the dose prescribed by the doctor, even if the effect wears off. By unauthorized dose increase, the targeted treatment is difficult.
When discontinued after prolonged use, restlessness, anxiety and insomnia can occur, often with a few days delay. These settling symptoms generally disappear after 2-3 weeks.
If you are or have ever been addicted to alcohol, medicines or drugs, you should not take benzodiazepines; rare, only situations to be judged by the doctor. Tell your doctor about this.
Never take medicines containing benzodiazepines because they have "helped others so well" and never give them to others.
Taking Diazepam with other medicines
Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription. Concomitant use of other drugs acting on the nervous system may increase the effects of each other. These medicines include, for. B. preparations for the treatment of mental disorders (psychotropic drugs), sleeping pills, some painkillers, anesthetics or certain drugs for the treatment of allergies or colds (antihistamines).
The effect of medicines that lower muscle tension (muscle relaxants) can be strengthened.
If you are taking cimetidine or omeprazole (medicines used to treat stomach ulcers, for example) or disulfiram (medicines used to treat alcohol withdrawal), the effects of Diazepam may be increased and prolonged.
In smokers, the excretion of diazepam can be accelerated.
Theophylline (medicines used to treat, for example, asthma) in low doses relaxes Diazepam sedation.
Diazepam may inhibit the effects of levodopa (Parkinson's disease medicines).
In rare cases, Diazepam can inhibit the metabolism of phenytoin (an epilepsy drug) and increase its effectiveness. Phenobarbital and phenytoin (medicines used to treat epileptic seizures) can accelerate the metabolism of Diazepam.
In patients undergoing long-term treatment with other medicinal products, such as For example, certain medicines for high blood pressure (centrally effective antihypertensive agents, beta-adrenoceptor blockers), anticoagulants and cardiovascular agents (cardioactive glycosides) are unpredictable in their nature and extent. Therefore, special care should be taken when taking the product at the same time, especially at the beginning of treatment. Tell your doctor if you are receiving such long-term treatment.
Due to slow excretion of diazepam from the body, you should still expect possible interactions after stopping treatment with Diazepam.
Taking Diazepam with food and drink
Avoid alcohol during treatment with Diazepam, as alcohol will alter and enhance the effects of Diazepam unpredictably.
pregnancy and breast feeding period
In pregnancy, you should only use Diazepam in exceptional cases for compelling reasons. If you become pregnant or suspect you are pregnant while receiving Diazepam-ratiopharm®, tell your doctor immediately. Long-term use of Diazepam during pregnancy may lead to withdrawal symptoms in the newborn. The administration of larger doses before or during childbirth can cause a lowered body temperature, depressed respiration, reduced muscle tension and dehydration (so-called "floppy-infant syndrome") in the infant.
During breast-feeding, you should not use Diazepam as diazepam, the active substance in Diazepam, and its breakdown products are excreted in breast milk. If treatment is inevitable, it should be weaned.
Driving and using machines
This medicinal product, even when used properly, may alter the ability to react so far as to affect the ability to drive or operate machinery. This applies even more in combination with alcohol.
Therefore, you should refrain from driving, operating machinery or any other dangerous activity altogether, or at least during the first few days of treatment. The decision in each individual case is made by the treating physician, taking into account the individual reaction and the respective dosage.
Important information about some of the ingredients of Diazepam

gastrointestinal upset (nausea, vomiting, abdominal discomfort, constipation, diarrhea), jaundice, urinary retention, fits of cramps, chest pain, drop in blood pressure, slowing of heartbeat, depression, decreased sexual desire, and in menstruation disorders , Appetite increase, dry mouth, allergic skin changes (such as itching, redness, rash) as well as respiratory damping.
The atraumatic effect may be more pronounced in the case of existing respiratory distress due to narrowed airways and in patients with brain damage. This is especially important when used with other medicines that affect the brain.
Excessive doses of the drug for several days may cause colicky abdominal pain and diarrhea.
High doses and prolonged use of Diazepam may cause temporary disturbances such as slow or slurred speech, visual disturbances (double vision, blurred vision, eye shaking), movement and gait insecurity.
Prolonged or repeated use of Diazepam may lead to a decrease in the effect (so-called tolerance development).
In patients with pre-existing depressive illness depressive moods can be exacerbated. There is also the possibility that sensory disorders (hallucinations) occur or an inversion of activity ("paradoxical reactions"), such. As acute arousal states, anxiety, suicidality (suicidal tendencies), sleep disorders, tantrums or increased muscle spasms occurs.

Buprenorphine (Subutex®, buprenorphine mepha®) may offer advantages over methadone in certain situations for pharmacological reasons. Basically, clarification / status and approval procedures are the same as with methadone, see "SBG: Start in 1 Consultation" (best practice, suitable for experienced doctors) or "SGB Start in 2 Consultations". An aid for the differentiated indication for buprenorphine can be found here. Buprenorphine is much more expensive than methadone, but is also a compulsory health insurance.
Sublingual administration with rapid absorption (pronounced first-pass effect, therefore hardly bioavailable after swallowing and low risk of intoxication). After 3-5 minutes the tablets dissolve under the tongue (to fully allow the effect of the tablets, do not swallow for 5 minutes).
sublingual bioavailability = 31-52%
Time to reach a clinical effect approx. 30 (-60) minutes
Time to reach maximum plasma levels about 90-150 minutes
Time to reach maximum clinical effect about 1-4 hours
Rapid absorption from the plasma and redistribution into various tissues (e.g., adipose tissue). Out of the different tissues, there is a time-delayed, slow redistribution, which ensures constant buprenorphine plasma levels ("depot effect"). Effective plasma levels: between 0.7 and 12 ng / ml; dose-dependent duration of action Steady state: about after 5-8 days; no significant daily fluctuations with regular intake. Most of the metabolism is via cytochrome P450 3A4. Since other enzymes are involved in the degradation of buprenorphine (CYP 2C8), the degradation metabolism of buprenorphine and its metabolites is relatively insensitive to interactions. Elimination half-life: 20-25 / 37hours. The elimination is predominantly hepatic by glucuronidation and N-dealkylation. The excretion is about 70-80% of the faeces, the rest, 20-30%, renal.
Buprenorphine is a partial agonist on the mu opioid receptor (mediating effects such as euphoria, analgesia, respiratory depression and dependence) and an antagonist on the kappa receptor (mediating effects such as dysphoria and sedation). Compared to methadone and heroin, buprenorphine shows important differences due to its special properties at the opioid receptors: Buprenorphine has a higher receptor affinity (heroin and methadone are displaced) and a moderate intrinsic agonistic activity with only partial stimulation of the mu opioid receptors (high doses of buprenorphine result in a lighter, less euphoric and less sedating central nervous effect than high doses of other opioids such as heroin, methadone). Ceiling Effect: There is no linear dose-response relationship. With increasing dosage it comes to reaching a Wirkplateaus. Buprenorphine, in combination with other central depressants, may contribute to a limited respiratory depressive effect. Buprenorphine shows a long receptor half-life with slow receptor dissociation and less receptor-down regulation.
