There is a growing trend of Tramadol abuse among Ghanaian youth in some parts of the country. Recent surveys have shown the drug is also used among market women, drivers, and in some cases, students.

The abuse of Tramadol, a pain relief drug, according to medical experts, functions like heroin and can cause psychotic problems as well as damage vital organs in the human body.

It seems the numerous campaigns are falling on deaf ears as a 25-year-old man collapsed and died on the spot after abusing seven tablets of tramadol during a contest with friends at Ajumako Asaaban in the Ajumako-Enyan District of the Central Region.
