Tramadol is not a federally controlled substance but some states have made it a Schedule IV. Be very careful though, it is addictive and has some strong withdrawal symptoms. Tramadol is a synthetic opioid, which means it has the structure of narcotics like hydrocodone or oxycodone without the strong euphoric effect.
It can cause euphoria if taken in high doses but high doses causes seizures. Also, please be VERY CAREFUL if you are taking any other anti-depressants like Wellbutrin, Cymbalta, Effexor or other SSRIs. These anti-depressants effect the level of Serotonin in the brain. Too much and it causes "Serotonin Syndrome", which can also cause seizures among other things.

So ironic. I just had appt with pain doc this morning and had to have a urine test. They tell me they are checking my Morphine, Fentanyl, Gabapentin, and Xanax levels. They were marked in a certain section of the test paper I had to sign. I noticed that Tramadol IS listed on another part of the form, so, some docs are checking for it.
