Maxitram Tramadol 150mg SR Capsules
For moderate to severe pain.
Posology and method of administration
The dose should be adjusted to the intensity of the pain and the sensitivity of the individual patient. The lowest effective dose for analgesia should generally be selected.
Adults and adolescents aged 12 years and over
150 mg tramadol hydrochloride twice daily (corresponding to 300 mg of tramadol hydrochloride/day), morning and evening administration recommended.
The smallest effective analgesic dose should always be used. Daily doses of 400 mg of active substance must not be exceeded, unless exceptional medical reasons require so. A minimum interval of 8 hours must be respected between administrations.
MAXITRAM SR is not suitable for use in children below 25 kg body weight which in general does not allow for individualized dosage in children below 12 years of age.
Consequently, a more suitable form of administration should be used.
A dose adjustment is not usually necessary in patients up to 75 years without clinically manifest hepatic or renal insufficiency. In elderly patients over 75 years elimination may be prolonged. Therefore, if necessary the dosage interval is to be extended according to the patient's requirements.
Renal insufficiency/dialysis and hepatic impairment
In patients with renal and/or hepatic insufficiency the elimination of tramadol is delayed. In these patients prolongation of the dosage intervals should be carefully considered according to the patient's requirements.
The recommended dosages are indicative only. In general, the smallest effective analgesic dose should be used. For the treatment of chronic pain, a pre-established posology must be respected.
For doses not realisable/practicable with this medicinal product other strengths of this medicinal product or other pharmaceutical forms and products are available.
