It kind of depends on who you ask! lol Tramadol is NOT a product of the poppy plant and it is not even synthetically related. It is consider "opioid-like" because although it isnt a true opioid, it affects the same receptor sites that opioids do so therefore it has been found that Tramadol has many of the same addicitive and withdrawal issues that opioids do. It is actually chemically closer to anti-depressives so it has many of the same issues of withdrawal from those too! Does that help answer your question any?
