Tapentadol 100mg uses, side effects, and precautions

Pain can be a life-sucking force that leaves you feeling hopeless and helpless. If this sounds like something you have to live with on a daily basis, then tapentadol 100 mg tablet (tapentadol) may just be your new best friend. Tapentadol is an opioid pain reliever medication used for severe chronic or acute pain which has not responded well to other treatments such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Tapentadol 100mg uses, side effects, and precautions

How it works

  • Tapentadol is an over the counter medication that is used to aid with headache relief or generalized body aches from injury or illness (typically muscle spasms).

  • Tapentadol acts through its interaction with opioid receptors within your central nervous system and interrupts how you perceive pain signals coming into your spinal cord area. 

  • Tapentadol has been found to be effective in managing severe pain, particularly for those who are not responding well to other medications or treatments.

 Uses of Tapentadol

  • It is used to treat
  • Sudden pain
  • Severe headaches
  • It belongs to the class of opioid analgesics and helps stop severe discomfort fast. Tapentadol's action in reducing excessive sensitivity may also help reduce long-term chronic neuropathic pain such as that occurring after shingles (postherpetic neuralgia). 

How to use Tapentadol

  • The tapentadol Medication Guide is an essential reference tool to make sure you are taking the correct dose of this medication.

  • It is important that you read these instructions before every refill and keep them close by at all times, as they provide a detailed outline on how to use your drug properly for maximum effectiveness with minimal risk.

  • This drug is taken orally after taking the food. Make sure you first eat your meals and after half an hour you can have the medication. If being motionless doesn't suffice and your nausea is still not decreasing, don't hesitate to ask for alternative relief from your doctor! 

Dosage

When it comes to taking this medication, there are a few rules. As per your medication conditions and response to the treatment your doctor will decide your dose.

Do not increase your dose or use the drug more often than prescribed because you may become dependent on it in time which will cause horrific side effects such as heart palpitations and numbness of tongue tingling sensations that can lead up to paralysis. When you've reached this limit, be sure to stop using it according to doctor instructions.                                        

Do not suddenly stop using the medication

  • Your doctor may be able to help you taper off of this medication. However, withdrawal symptoms can arise if the dose is decreased too quickly or in high doses that have been used for a long time.
  • If these side effects occur while tapering your dosage down, let your physician know right away so they are aware and can adjust accordingly!

Withdrawal Symptoms

        Diarrhea

        Sweating

        Muscles aches

        Runny nose
 

When this medication becomes addictive, it may stop working well.

If your doctor notices the effects of addiction or other side-effects on your health from long-term use, talk to them about alternative treatments that will work better for you in these situations.

Tapentadol Side Effects

        Nausea

        Dizziness

        Constipation

        Drowsiness 

  • One way to reduce the risk of constipation is by increasing your fibre intake. You can do this by eating more fruits and vegetables, whole grains like oatmeal or buckwheat, beans, lentils, etc., as well as nuts and seeds.
  • Drinking enough water while also exercising regularly helps keep things moving too!
  • On the other hand, for dizziness and lightheadedness, getting up slowly may help.
  • Your physician prescribes drugs for a reason- they believe that there is more advantage to them as opposed to just being an experiment on themselves!
  • Side effects are common when taking certain medications like headaches and stomach issues (although rare), so be sure not to take any chances by telling your doctors about everything going on in the body before starting treatment if possible!
  • Special Consideration Serotonin syndrome/toxicity

  • This medication may increase serotonin, but it also has the rare side effect of causing serious problems called "serotonin syndrome/toxicity." The risk increases if you're taking other drugs that cause too much serotonin in your system.
  • It's important to let any healthcare provider know about all the medications you take - just remember to mention this one! Some symptoms of having a buildup are a fast heartbeat and delusions while others could be seizures or hallucinations.
  • If these happen, get medical help right away so they can prescribe more specific treatment for your condition among other things like fluids and electrolytes because there is an increased chance during toxins cases that people might lose fluid through diarrhea as well as vomit due to high fever which causes nausea after vomiting (causing dehydration).
  • This drug is very safe, but if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction get medical help right away! Symptoms to watch out for include rash, itching/swelling (especially in the face), severe dizziness, and trouble breathing.
