Is tramadol an opioid?

Responses (7)

Rajive Goel 29 May 2012

Tramadol hydrochloride is a prescription pain medication. It is licensed for the treatment of moderate to moderately severe pain in adults. Even though tramadol is an opioid (morphine-like) medication, it is not considered a narcotic or a controlled substance by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

Take care, best wishes!

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 : )

Delia, did you see my comment to you? I can't PM you yet. That comment was not directed at you. There was a conflict with another poster and I should have handled it with a private message. My bad. Sorry for the misunderstanding to you & anyone else who took this the wrong way. Very sorry, please forgive me.

Yes I did. Thank you, apology accepted : )

It is a synthetic opioid. Mary is right, very addictive and dangerous, especially if stopped cold turkey or abused, siezures are a possibility.
Beware.

Thank you for the information. It's conflict in one says it is addicting another says it's not

No. It's a synthetic (whatever that means). Hope this helps.

Synthetic means it was made in a lab, & not taken from a plant base like many are... Mary

Will this medication show positive on a 7 panel drug screen?

Delila 8 Jun 2013

I'm sorry, i'm not sure how the 7 panel drug screen is conducted, it will show up in a urine test though.

No, it does NOT. I know, I take it, and have been tested...

BTW, Tramadol is a synthetic opioid.-

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!!!
