No, it is a synthetic narcotic. Take it with care though, treat it like you would Hydrocodone or similiar. They like to say that it is not addictive as other narcotics but, although it is not as strong, it is just as dangerous and addictive.
Also, make sure you are not taking any anti-depressants like Cymbalta, Effexor or Wellbutrin. Tramadol acts on Serotonin levels in your brain. Too much and it will cause a seizure or other symptoms called "Serotonin Syndrome".
I took it for two years until it caused seizures out of the blue. I found out the hard way after my third one that I wasn't supposed to mix it with my other medication. Withdrawal symptoms were a bitch.
