Despite the fact that the drug is not a narcotic, its a vacation in pharmacies only by prescription (form 148). This is due to the fact that certain components included in its composition, are specialists for active ingredients. The prices of medicines in this group cannot be called accessible to a large number of consumers, which is also a specific obstacle to widespread drug. But we'll talk about that a little later, but first let us examine the composition of tablets, the main properties of its active substances and many other things.
What is the drug “Soldier”? Composition – that plays a major role in the effectiveness of any drug. In addition to the well-known and widely used paracetamol, which is present in the tablets in quantities of 325 mg “Soldier” contains a substance known as tramadol hydrochloride (37.5 mg). If paracetamol consumers are familiar almost from childhood, tramadol is less known in wider circles. In addition, sometimes it is considered a drug, although in fact it is not. Like all opioid analgesics synthetic origin, tramadol has the ability to act in two directions, allowing you to use it to eliminate the pain high and medium intensity. More about this will be discussed in the section on the pharmacological properties.

Pharmacodynamics paracetamol is the deactivation of cyclooxygenase in pain and temperature centers of the brain. However, this substance does not affect peripheral tissues, namely their prostaglandinsynthase functions. In addition, paracetamol does not affect water and electrolyte balance in the body.
Tramadol acts on the pain centers a little differently: substance and its metabolites have the ability to activate the so-called m-opiate receptors. It also activates non-opioid receptors by giperpoliarizatia membranes in the synapses of the spinal cord and spinal neurons. Despite the similarity of action of tramadol with drugs, its effect is 6,000 times weaker than, for example, morphine.
The Absorption of paracetamol and tramadol in the digestive tract fast enough. This total absorption of paracetamol is much faster than tramadol. The breakdown data of active substances occurs mainly in the liver. They are displayed primarily through the urinary system (30% unchanged, 60% as metabolites).
The Drug “Soldier" instruction for use recommends that in the case of medium and strong intensity of pain of various origins (disease, injury, inflammation, etc.). In addition, it is advisable to use this drug before medical procedures (diagnostic and therapeutic), which can cause pain. To buy the drug “Soldier” without a doctor's prescription, as mentioned above, is not possible. That is why its application is only available in cases where it is really needed.
Regarding the use of the “Soldier" of the instruction manual mentions the contraindications, which implies the inability this medication and its analogues at the active ingredients. The first and most important is considered to be a contraindication individual intolerance of its constituent components, including excipients. The second contraindication is the patient's age up to 14 years. In additionthere is quite an extensive list of diseases and conditions in which the drug is not possible in connection with risk of development of various complications.
So, consider, in what cases it is contraindicated tablets “Soldier" (analogues of active substances also should not be used in the following cases):
The above condition is binding. Next, we present the list of situations under which the use of the drug “Soldier” requires caution and continuous monitoring of the patient's condition.

The Drug “Soldier” is solely under the supervision of a physician. The dosage and regimen is determined by the specialist based on the condition of the patient, the severity of pain.

Kidney and liver failure also requires an adjustment of the regimen and drug dosing “Soldier”. It should be noted that during hemodialysis active ingredient pill tramadol cannot be practically removed from the body. On this basis, patients with impaired renal function should not take a second dose of medication after the procedure, as this may lead to overdose. The same recommendations can be addressed to patients with acute violations of the liver. The risk of complications comes not from the tramadol, and paracetamol. The risk of complications is significantly increased in individuals with a liver which has undergone changes due to the effects of alcohol.
The Drug “Soldier”, which will be described later, is able to interact with many drugs. Not always this combination has a positive effect on the patient. That is why specialists recommend that individuals who accept these pills, to announce the admission of the drug when they are assigned to other medications.

The combined use of barbiturates with the drug reduces the effectiveness of paracetamol and alcohol together can cause the development of pancreatitis in an acute form. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents is also not recommended for use in conjunction with tablets “Soldier” because of their specific interaction with paracetamol. The fact that this greatly increases the risk of renal failure and necrosis of papillary structures of the kidneys. In severe cases, the patient may develop cancer of the kidney or bladder.
With prolonged use of the drug “Soldier”, the greater the impact on the body even small DOX anticoagulants, resulting in increased risk of bleeding.
Tablets “Soldier” there are many side effects that affect almost all organs and systems. Often patients with the first day of receiving the funds begin to disturb dizziness, memory loss, seizures, or tremor. Also among the adverse reactions of the organism to the drug referred to phenomena such as drowsiness or insomnia, nausea, flatulence, indigestion and heart rhythm. In addition to the above, patients may experience menstrual irregularities, delayed or absence of urination, dyspnoea, match those of aplastic anemia.
With long-term treatment with “Soldier” may develop drug dependence or withdrawal syndrome after abrupt abandonment of taking the pills. To avoid this, you should not take this medicine longer than the recommended instructions for use and the abolition of the drug necessary to produce a gradual dose reduction.
Long uncontrolled reception of preparations containing tramadol, can lead to drug dependence, as expressed in nervousness, psychomotor activity and phobias. In this regard, during the period of treatment “Soldier”, the price is quite high, it is necessary to adhere strictly to recommended duration of its administration. Patients who previously had such a relationship should take the drug under medical supervision.
Driving vehicles and management of complex mechanisms during the period of treatment should stop.
So, based on the foregoing, it can be concluded that the important thing that should guide the drug “Soldier”. Price of tablets in comparison with other potent drugs seems not very high and is about 800 rubles per pack. Analogues of the drug a bit: the content of the two active components can be identified unless tablets “Forcada”, whose value is much higher.
