What is Mabron?
The active ingredient in Mabron is tramadol, an analgesic that belongs to the class of medicines called opioids (morphine-like painkillers). It works via the central nervous system and blocks the transmission of pain signals in the nerve pathways before they reach the brain. This makes Mabron very effective at relieving nerve pain and other moderate to severe pain symptoms.
When is it used?
Mabron is commonly prescribed to ease nerve pain (stinging pain caused by damaged nerves), but is also used to help control other types of pain, such as menstrual pain, post-operative pain, pain from injuries, headache, arthrosis and pain from illness.
How to use Mabron
Swallow the tablet whole with some liquid either before, during or after your meals. Do not chew the tablet. Mabron tablets are modified release tablets, which means they are designed to release the tramadol slowly over a few hours to provide long-term pain relief. Chewing the tablets will damage the modified release action. Always try to take the lowest possible dose for the shortest possible time.
Mabron is available in packs of 60 tablets in the strengths of 100 mg, 150 mg and 200 mg. The standard dose for adults and children aged 12 and over is 50 to 200 mg twice a day, with a maximum of 400 mg a day. It is important not to exceed the dose recommended by the doctor. Mabron is not suitable for children under the age of 12.
All medications may have side effects, although some people may not experience any. Reported side effects of Mabron include:
- Drowsiness, dizziness, sleepiness
- Nausea, vomiting (these side effects will disappear once the body adjusts to the use of the medication)
- Constipation (this can be alleviated by drinking plenty of fluids and eating fibre-rich foods)
See the package leaflet for a complete list of possible contraindications, warnings and other side effects.
Do not use Mabron if you are pregnant or want to become pregnant, and in any case avoid taking it during the last two months of pregnancy. Mabron may contribute to breathing problems after birth. Seek medical advice from your doctor if you are breastfeeding.
Mabron affects your ability to react. Do not drive if you experience drowsiness, dizziness or sleepiness. If used for extensive periods, allow your body about two weeks to adjust to the medication before driving. If used occasionally, the effect of Mabron lasts 24 hours, which means you may drive after 24 hours.
Alcohol intensifies the effect of Mabron. It is advisable to stop alcohol consumption when taking this medicine.
