Paracetamol is a non-opiate, non-salicylate analgesic. Tramadol is a centrally acting synthetic opioid analgesic. Although its mode of action is not completely understood, from animal tests, at least two complementary mechanisms appear applicable: binding of parent and M1 metabolite to m-opioid receptors and weak inhibition of reuptake of nor-epinephrine and serotonin.
Opioid activity is due to both low affinity binding of the parent compound and higher affinity binding of the O-demethylated metabolite M1 to m-opioid receptors.
As some other opioid analgesics, Tramadol has been shown to inhibit reuptake of nor-epinephrine and serotonin in vitro. These mechanisms may contribute independently to the overall analgesic profile of Tramadol.

Use in renal disease: This combination preparation has not been studied in patients with impaired renal function. In patients with creatinine clearances of less than 30 ml/min, it is recommended that the dosing interval of this combination preparation be increased but not to exceed 2 tablets every 12 hours.
Use in hepatic disease: This combination preparation has not been studied in patients with impaired hepatic function. The use of this combination preparation in patients with hepatic impairment is not recommended.
The following adverse reactions may happen to this therapy: asthenia, fatigue, hot flushes, dizziness, headache, tremor, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, dyspepsia, dry mouth, nausea, vomiting, anorexia, anxiety, confusion, euphoria, insomnia, nervousness, somnolence pruritus, rash, increased sweating etc.
