How long does it take for Tramadol to work ? It depends on many factors. The factors include:
1.Age and general health
In healthy people, it takes about 20-30 minutes for Tramadol to work. If you have just eaten a large meal, the necessary time is longer than usual. In most cases, onset of pain relief occurred in less than one hour.
2.Mode of administration
If Tramadol is administered through the skin (intra-dermal injection) or oral liquid doses, you will feel the effect of pain relief immediately. Some people snort tramadol to make pain relief faster. The other mode of administration may need more time to wok.
3. Type of Tramadol
The combination formula of tramadol hydrochloride and acetaminophen (Ultracet) make the beginning of pain relief faster than Tramadol alone.
4.Use another medical drugs together with Tramadol
Some medical drugs will reduce the effects of Tramadol no matter what doses you are using such as Suboxone.
Finally, Tramadol works differently for every person. After taking it, you should wait a while before you take any more doses ( maximum daily dose was 400 mg) . Because Tramadol can be addictive and high doses can make you high, use less is always better than more. Get advice from your doctor before adjust your dose and frequency of taking Tramadol.
