some of the members have stated that it does contain a fast acting snri which elevates their mood. but when i look up the ingredients i've never seen that as one of them. only that tramadol is a narcotic like pain reliever.

Tramadol does not contain an SNRI, yet it affects serotonin and norepinephrine, making one feel slightly eurphoric. Also, after Tramadol cessation (if taken for a long period of time) one may need an SNRI while in withdrawal. If you've been taking it for a long time, do NOT go cold turkey off of this medication, as it can cause seizures. Tapering slowly is a good idea.
Best wishes to you,
