The War between Tramadol and Oxycontin

order :

When you were in severe pain and wanted it to end as soon possible, your doctor might have suggested tramadol, oxycodone, and oxycodone CR (controlled release). It’s always fun to watch people go on and on about which drug is better when both the drug function as pain killers. We are bringing a glimpse of the same war here.

BOON: Tramadol VS Oxycontin

Tramadol: It is a human-made drug. It is a Schedule IV drug, which means it has a low potential for abuse and low risk of dependence. It is sold under the brand name Ultram and has generic versions. It is a potent prescribed pain reliever containing an opioid (narcotic) used to manage pain in patients. It is generally prescribed when other pain treatments such as non-opioid pain medicines fail to treat your pain reasonably well, or you cannot tolerate them. Tramadol can put you at risk for overdose and death as it can be addicting if used for longer than prescribed. Even if you take your dose as prescribed by your doctor, you are at risk for opioid addiction, abuse, and misuse, leading to death.

Oxycontin: It a semi-synthetic drug that is synthesized from thebaine, a part of poppy plants. It is a Schedule II drug by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which means it has a high potential for addiction and abuse. It is used to treat severe on-going pain, for example, cancer.
