Tapentadol SR is a centrally acting opioid analgesic for chronic, severe disabling pain not responding to non-opioid analgesics. Studies have shown it may have similar efficacy to that of oxycodone CR for the relief of chronic pain associated with osteoarthritis and low back pain. There are currently limited data regarding other chronic pain conditions, and limited comparative data with other opioids, including tramadol.
