Jo,

Tramacet is only available on prescription and contains paracetamol and Tramadol, an atypical opioid with a low affinity for opioid receptors that may have less side-effects than the typical opioids such as morphine.
Regarding the medic alert bracelet - Ask your doc, your nearest pharmacy or visit www.medicalert.org for subscription details.
