Non-opioid activity contributes by the analgesic effect of tramadol. However, this can not entirely by the μ-opioid receptor antagonist naloxone be antagonized. Tramadol is the meaning of serotonergic modulating properties that it has the ability to interact, with other serotonergic. But the risk increases when tramadol is taken in combination with factor serotonin reuptake inhibitors. It can cause serotonin syndrome.
