Ultram is not a narcotic. It is not even a controlled substance in most states. While truthfully I cannot tell you if it will show up as an opiate on a drug screen or not , all you need to do is show that you have a prescription for it and it can not be used against you.
I hope this helps!

Pledge is correct, as is balbanese (sorry Lisa, I respectfully disagree with you, but just about the opioid part my friend) it IS considered an opioid analgesic just as he said.
But, as Lisa said, take the RX bottle with you to your test, and you should have no problems. Lisa is spot on with her answer regarding that, taking the bottle with you. Lisa is also correct that it isn't even considered a controlled substance at this point in time. But that may soon change, so do be careful when you take Ultram, as it may become a controlled substance soon.
Best wishes to you.

Yes it will show up. It is a centrally-acting synthetic analgesic drug. Opiates are drugs derived from opium.
