No. Tramadol is an opioid to most people. Its not offically in the opioid class but it acts on some opioid receptors in the brain. Its one of the weakest opioid there is but it will still relive pain. It weakly binds with the M-1 and M-2 receptors if I remember correctly. That makes it a pain killer by most standards.
Hope this helped!
