Ultracet is not indicated for use for more than five continuous days due to the high risk of liver toxicity. Serious side effects of Ultracet may include seizures, blistering skin rash, respiratory depression (shallow breathing), and cardiovascular depression (weak pulse).
Other potential serious side effects of Ultracet include nausea, vomiting, constipation, fainting, fever, overactive reflexes, hallucinations, loss of coordination, and agitation. Mild side effects may include dizziness, weakness, fatigue, drowsiness, dry mouth, anxiety, blurred vision, constipation, stomach pain, excessive sweating, insomnia, and loss of appetite.
Prolonged treatment with Ultracet or other opioids for a month or longer is known to cause adrenal insufficiency. Adrenal insufficiency is the result of the adrenal gland not being able to produce enough of the stress hormone cortisol to keep up with the body’s demands. Symptoms of adrenal insufficiency include chronic fatigue, mood swings, and brain fog.
Tramadol is a centrally acting opioid agonist. It is prescribed to treat moderate to severe pain. Tramadol achieves its effects by binding to opioid receptors and inhibiting the reuptake of the neurotransmitters serotonin and norepinephrine. By binding to opioid receptors, tramadol reduces the patient’s perception of pain. Acetaminophen is a mild over-the-counter pain reliever that is known to significantly increase the pain-relieving effects of tramadol.
