Powerful somatic and visceral analgesic. Sterile injectable solution ready to use. Tramadol 60 mg | mL
Algen LD 50 mL Vial
Injectable sterile solution.
Tramadol is a synthetic codeine derivative, µ agonist, used as an analgesic for a variety of acute and chronic painful syndromes.
Algen LD has a double mechanism of action, on the one hand it binds to the opioid receptors of the Mu type and on the other hand it inhibits the reuptake of Noradrenaline and Serotonin, in such a way that it increases the activity of these neurotransmitters. This dual mode of action gives it a powerful synergistic action, leading to analgesia comparable to meperidine or codeine.
Its duration of action is 6 to 8 hours.
INDICATIONS OF USE
ALGEN LD, is indicated for the control of somatic and / or visceral pain of moderate to severe degree and of acute or chronic origin (fractures, dislocations, contusions, osteoarthritis, neuropathies, etc.).
Algen LD can be administered during anesthetic premedication in order to improve intraoperative analgesia and provide the patient with a comfortable awakening.
Algen LD in combination with major tranquilizers increases the sedative action and justifies the dose reduction.
Algen LD is used in the treatment of postoperative pain of outpatients and hospitalized patients, presenting itself as an effective alternative in the majority of abdomen, mastectomy, traumatology and spine surgeries.
The combination of Algen LD with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs increases its effectiveness, producing a multimodal pain relief action.
