What is Tapentadol ?

Tapentadol 100mg is an opioid painkiller used for treating moderate to severe pain in adults. The drug is available under the brand name Palexia (Tapentadol) . It directly affects how the brain perceives and reacts to pain. As an opioid painkiller (narcotics), it is considered among the most potent painkillers available on the market. The medicine works in two ways. It binds with the brain’s opioid receptors and spinal cord and regulates the noradrenaline levels in the brain. This decreases the way you feel or react to pain.

What is Tapentadol used for?

Tapentadol Australia is used for treating moderate to severe acute pain (chronic pain in some cases) that is expected to go away as your condition heals.

Besides, it can also be recommended for people to control surgical pain after surgery. This is prescribed to patients who need round-the-clock pain medication to relieve pain that any other pain medications cannot control.
