What is Tapentadol 100mg?
Tapentadol is an opioid medication used to treat moderate to severe pain. The extended-release form is for around-the-clock treatment which is not controlled by other medicines.
How does this medication work?
This strong painkiller works in two ways. It binds to certain tiny areas called opioid receptors in the brain and spinal cord, and it also regulates the level of a chemical known as GABA neurotransmitter in your brain. These actions decrease the way you feel pain and your reaction to pain.
