The meds mentioned here are benzodiazepines and have nothing alike with opioids, they are in the same schedule, IV.

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!!!

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...

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

I knew that! :)

balbanese, if you knew what "synthetic" means, then why add "(whatever that means)"?

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

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

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

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.

Delila 30 May 2012

Yes I did. Thank you, apology accepted : )
