The present invention relates to a controlled release preparation for oral administration, to processes for its preparation and to its medical use. In particular, (lie invention relates to a controlled release preparation comprising tramadol or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof.

Tramadol, which has the chemical name (+)-trans-2-[(dimethylamino)methyl]-1-(3-methoxyphenyl) cyclohexanol, is an orally active opioid analgesic. Conventional release preparations in the form of capsules, drops and suppositories containing tramadol, or more particularly its hydrochloride salt, have been commercially available for many years for use in the treatment of moderate to severe pain; Such preparations, however, do not provide a controlled release of the tramadol. Moreover, despite tramadol's long-standing use, controlled release preparations for oral administration containing tramadol as an active ingredient have not even previously been described in the literature.

It is an object of the present invention to provide an oral controlled release tramadol preparation suitable for at least twelve-hourly (e.g. up to twenty-four hourly) administration for the treatment of pain.

The present invention, therefore, provides a controlled release preparation comprising tramadol or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof for oral administration.

Suitable pharmaceutically acceptable salts of tramadol for use according to the present invention are those conventionally known in the art such as pharmaceutically acceptable acid addition salts. The hydrochloride salt is particularly preferred.
