Advice

Following a full submission.

Tramadol 37.5mg/paracetamol 325mg tablet (Tramacet) is not recommended for use within NHS Scotland for the symptomatic treatment of moderate to severe pain.

Tramacet had similar efficacy to another combination analgesic in clinical studies, though the dose of paracetamol in the other analgesic preparation was lower than that usually used in the UK. Tramacet costs significantly more than its individual components prescribed separately.
