Ultracet Overdose

An Ultracet (tramadol/acetaminophen) overdose can be potentially dangerous, so it is important to seek medical attention immediately if you may have overdosed. In the event of an overdose, the tramadol component of the drug may cause difficulty breathing, pale skin, or seizures; the acetaminophen component may cause vomiting, liver failure, and bleeding. Treatment for an Ultracet overdose may involve certain medicines or "pumping the stomach."
