Also known as: Tramadol
Redimol (tramadol) is a pain medicine similar to an opioid. It acts in the central nervous system (CNS) to relieve pain.
Redimol is used to treat moderate to severe pain in adults.
The extended-release form of tramadol (Redimol ER) is for around-the-clock treatment of pain. Redimol ER is not for use on an as-needed basis for pain.
Follow the directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides. Never use Redimol ER in larger amounts, or for longer than prescribed. Tell your doctor if you feel an increased urge to take more of Redimol ER.
Never share Redimol ER with another person, especially someone with a history of drug addiction. MISUSE CAN CAUSE ADDICTION, OVERDOSE, OR DEATH. Keep the medicine where others cannot get to it. Selling or giving away this medicine is against the law.
Stop taking all other opioid medications when you start taking Redimol ER.
Redimol ER can be taken with or without food, but take it the same way each time.
Swallow the capsule or tablet whole to avoid exposure to a potentially fatal overdose. Do not crush, chew, break, open, or dissolve.
Measure liquid medicine with the supplied syringe or a dose-measuring device (not a kitchen spoon).
Never crush or break a Redimol ER pill to inhale the powder or mix it into a liquid to inject the drug into your vein. This practice has resulted in death.
You may have withdrawal symptoms if you stop using Redimol ER suddenly. Ask your doctor before stopping the medicine.
Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep track of your medicine. You should be aware if anyone is using it improperly or without a prescription.
Do not keep leftover Redimol ER. Just one dose can cause death in someone using it accidentally or improperly. Ask your pharmacist where to locate a drug take-back disposal program. If there is no take-back program, mix the leftover medicine with cat litter or coffee grounds in a sealed plastic bag throw the bag in the trash.
Detailed Redimol ER dosage information
Seek emergency medical attention or call the Poison Help line at 1-800-222-1222. An overdose can be fatal, especially in a child or other person using the medicine without a prescription. Overdose symptoms may include severe drowsiness, pinpoint pupils, slow breathing, or no breathing.
Your doctor may recommend you get naloxone (a medicine to reverse an opioid overdose) and keep it with you at all times. A person caring for you can give the naloxone if you stop breathing or don't wake up. Your caregiver must still get emergency medical help and may need to perform CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) on you while waiting for help to arrive.
Anyone can buy naloxone from a pharmacy or local health department. Make sure any person caring for you knows where you keep naloxone and how to use it.
Store the medicine in a closed container at room temperature, away from heat, moisture, and direct light. Keep from freezing.
Keep out of the reach of children.
Do not keep outdated medicine or medicine no longer needed.
Ask your healthcare professional how you should dispose of any medicine you do not use.
