Tramadol ER Dosage

General Dosing Information

Some considerations for people taking tramadol ER include the following:
 
  • Tramadol ER comes in the form of extended-release tablets and capsules. It is usually taken once a day.
     
  • Tramadol ER can be taken with or without food.
     
  • Breaking, dissolving, or crushing tramadol ER tablets or capsules can be very dangerous, as this will cause too much of the medication to be released too quickly.
     
  • Do not drink alcohol while taking this medication.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Do not increase your dose without your healthcare provider's approval. Do not suddenly stop taking tramadol ER, especially if you have taken it regularly for more than several weeks (see Tramadol Withdrawal).
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage, please talk with your healthcare provider. Do not stop taking the drug without first discussing it with your healthcare provider.
