Tapentadol 100mg


SKU: N/A Category:


Product Overview:
Tapentadol 100 mg tablets are a powerful prescription medication used primarily for managing moderate to severe acute pain. Ideal for adults who require consistent pain relief, this medication is part of the opioid analgesic family, working effectively to alleviate discomfort in patients for whom alternative treatment options are inadequate or unsuitable.

Active Ingredient:
Each tablet contains 100 mg of Tapentadol, a centrally acting synthetic opioid analgesic. Tapentadol operates by binding to mu-opioid receptors and inhibiting the reuptake of norepinephrine, thus altering the body’s perception and response to pain.

Indications and Usage:
Tapentadol 100 mg is prescribed for the relief of moderate to severe pain, such as that due to surgery, injury, or certain chronic conditions. It is often utilized in pain management strategies when other treatments, including non-opioid pain medications, have not provided sufficient relief or are not recommended.

Dosage and Administration:

The dosage of Tapentadol 100 mg should be individually adjusted according to the severity of pain, patient response, and patient’s prior analgesic treatment experience.

  • Tablets should be swallowed whole with water and can be taken with or without food.
  • Physicians will typically start with the lowest effective dose and may adjust based on pain control and tolerability.

Mechanism of Action:
Tapentadol works by two mechanisms: agonist activity at the mu-opioid receptor and norepinephrine reuptake inhibition, offering effective pain relief with a potentially lower risk of side effects compared to traditional opioids.

Side Effects and Precautions:
Common side effects include nausea, vomiting, constipation, dizziness, drowsiness, and headache. Patients should be monitored for signs of addiction, abuse, and misuse. Tapentadol can interact with other medications, so it’s important to inform healthcare providers of all concurrent drug use.


  • Severe respiratory depression
  • Acute or severe bronchial asthma or hypercarbia
  • Known or suspected gastrointestinal obstruction, including paralytic ileus

Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Keep out of reach of children and pets to prevent accidental ingestion or misuse.

Regulatory Information:
Tapentadol is classified as a Schedule II controlled substance and should only be used under the strict supervision of a healthcare professional. It requires a prescription due to its potential for abuse, addiction, and serious side effects.
