    Goodmorning sir. What you are having is called TRAMADOL ADDICTION and you'll need to help of a doctor (psychiatrist) asap to get rid of that addiction. However, when you have pains or you feel stressed, paracetamol can give you the relief you need. Cheers

    How harmful can this drug be to the body, it's long term effects and all that??

    First of all sir, tramadol is a drug meant to be used for moderate-severe pain. Secondly, its a drug of addiction meaning you get hooked to taking it and when you dont take it, your body begins to react, hence you need to take it more often than your body actually needs it which is dangerous. Also, your body begins to demand more with time, hence at a point you might start overdosing with the consequent effects of drug overdosage. One of the major side effects of those class of drugs is its ability to cause respiratory depression i. E it can slow down breathing or even stop you from breathing. Hence the need to seek help as soon as possible.Cheers
