Ortho-McNeil Pharmaceutical, Inc. is recalling several lots of Ultram ER (tramadol HCl) Extended-Release Tablets, 100 mg sold in 30 tablets per bottle and physician samples containing 4 tablets in a blister pack.

  • I'm taking the 50mg IR, so assume I'm ok.
  • I believe this is an old recall- there was a recall at the end of '08/the beginning of '09 with tramadol ER due to issues with the time release. The lots listed here expire in the coming months, so it seems like these are meds that would have been sold a year or two ago and been part of the earlier recall. I think maybe they just continue to list them in the fda info. If you go on the main fda site there has been no new recall issued for tramadol this year...

    Thanks so much for posting! Even if it isn't a new recall, any of us on tramdol ER should check the lot #'s just to be sure.
