No it a schedule IV drug like Xanax or Ativan.
Tramadol is most definitely an opioid. As previously stated it is synthetic but never the less it is a potentially dangerous one as far as dependency and abuse. DO NOT take this drug more than needed, and especially for a extended length of time. USE WITH EXTREME CAUTION!!!
Yes, Tramadol is an opioid pain medication used to treat moderate to moderately severe pain.
Will this medication show positive on a 7 panel drug screen?
No. It's a synthetic (whatever that means). Hope this helps.
I totally agree with the others answers, but am giving you a link to read about tramadol. It will help you understand it's addictive qualities also. Hope this helps too... Mary
Hi, Rajive has already given you the correct description, i just wanted to add that it is a synthetic opiate, it becomes opiate like when it mixes with the bodies chemistry. Someone told me this once and it helped me to understand a bit better : )
Tramadol hydrochloride is a prescription pain medication. It is licensed for the treatment of moderate to moderately severe pain in adults.
Take care, best wishes!
