Tramadol - change in 'brand' & increased Pharmac Subsidies

Post by Paddy on Thu May 13, 2010 8:35 am

Some may be interested to know that Pharmac has just started funding an 'new' brand of Tramal (which was known as Tramadol) for pain management.

Its called 'Tramadol Arrow' and thank goodness, it is significantly cheaper than the Tramal was and supposedly the 'brand has changed but the medicine and strength remain the same.'

Here's the Medafe Data Sheet Link to the newly subsidised version, anyway.
