Is there a generic version of Ultracet?

There are generic versions of the prescription pain medication Ultracet (tramadol and acetaminophen), available under the name tramadol and acetaminophen. Ultracet and its generic versions are prescribed for the short-term management of acute pain. (They're usually taken for five days or less.) Like Ultracet tablets, each generic tablet contains 37.5 milligrams (mg) of tramadol and 325 mg of acetaminophen. This combination provides better pain relief than either medicine used alone.
