An initial dose of two tablets of Tramadol 37.5 mg and paracetamol 325 mg tablets is recommended. Additional doses can be taken as needed, not exceeding 8 tablets (equivalent to 300 mg Tramadol and 2600 mg Paracetamol) per day.

An initial dose of two tablets of Tramadol Hydrochloride & Paracetamol tablets is recommended. Additional doses can be taken as needed, not exceeding 8 tablets (equivalent to 300 mg Tramadol and 2600 mg Paracetamol) per day.
The dosing interval should not be less than six hours.
Tramadol 37.5 and paracetamol 325 mg tablets should under no circumstances be administered for longer than is strictly necessary. If repeated use or long term treatment with Tramadol 37.5 and paracetamol 325 mg tablets is required as a result of the nature and severity of the illness, then careful, regular monitoring should take place (with breaks in the treatment, where possible), to assess whether continuation of the treatment is necessary.
Children: The effective and safe use of Tramadol 37.5 and paracetamol 325 mg tablets has not been established in children below the age of 12 years. Treatment is therefore not recommended in this population.
Elderly patients: The usual dosages may be used although it should be noted that in volunteers aged over 75 years the elimination half life of tramadol was increased by 17% following oral administration. In patients over 75 years old, it is recommended that the minimum interval between doses should be not less than 6 hours, due to the presence of tramadol.
Renal insufficiency: Because of the presence of tramadol, the use of Tramadol Hydrochloride & Paracetamol tablets is not recommended in patients with severe renal insufficiency (creatinine clearance < 10 ml/min). In cases of moderate renal insufficiency (creatinine clearance between 10 and 30 ml/min), the dosing should be increased to 12-hourly intervals. As tramadol is removed only very slowly by haemodialysis or by haemofiltration, post dialysis administration to maintain analgesia is not usually required. Hepatic insufficiency: In patients with severe hepatic impairment Tramadol Hydrochloride & Paracetamol tablets should not be used. In moderate cases prolongation of the dosage interval should be carefully considered.
Method of administration: Oral use. Tablets must be swallowed whole, with a sufficient quantity of liquid. They must not be broken or chewed.
