Tapentadol included to narcotic list

The Drug administration of Bangladesh has been included tapentadol, a drug generally used as a pain killed, into the narcotic list.

Tapentadol is habit forming, especially with prolonged use. It may cause serious or life-threatening breathing problems, especially during the first 24 to 72 hours of treatment.

Tapentadol tablets are used to treat moderate to severe acute pain (pain that begins suddenly, has a specific cause, and is expected to go away when the cause of the pain is healed).
