No, tapentadol, or Nucynta, is kind of a "newer generation" drug in the same family as tramadol. They both have both analgesic action and norepinepherine reuptake action like antidepressants do. This makes Tramadol and Nucynta very different from other opioids. Nucynta is much stronger, I believe than tramadol but weaker than morphine. I think it is a schedule II drug where tramadol is either not a controlled substance or a schedule IV (some states may be a III) depending on where you live.
