Prescription Tramadol Drug Information
ULTRAM (Tramadol) may induce psychic and physical dependence of the morphine-type. Dependence and abuse, including drug-seeking behavior and taking illicit actions to obtain the drug are not limited to those patients with prior history of opioid dependence.

Withdrawal symptoms may occur if ULTRAM is discontinued abruptly.
