When should I call my doctor if I am taking Ultracet?

If you're taking the prescription pain medication Ultracet (tramadol and acetaminophen), you should call your doctor immediately if you experience:
  • seizures
  • hallucinations
  • sores on the inside of your mouth, nose, eyes or throat
  • flu-like symptoms
  • hives, rash or difficulty swallowing or breathing
You also should call your doctor if you take more Ultracet than prescribed -- an overdose can be dangerous or even fatal. Also call your doctor if you become pregnant while taking Ultracet. You should not stop taking Ultracet without first talking with your doctor, because stopping abruptly can cause withdrawal symptoms.
