Online contradiction advice clearly states that tramadol should not be taken with sedatives and other things like alcohol.

She posted that the drug had affected his memory and caused him to become confused. If he managed to get up he would fall over, she claimed.

“People should watch out for this drug,” she said. “It was alright at first but then my boyfriend suddenly started experiencing severe symptoms.” she warned.

Tramadol is an opioid pain medication sold under the names Ultram and Zytram.

Pharmacies in Thailand are restricted to selling only 1000 tablets each per month and its distribution to people 17 and younger is prohibited. No more than 20 tablets can be given out at a time.

But sanook.com reported that Tramadol is widely available online.
