It's basically a synthetic opiate. Supposed to be like a real opiate without the addiction. Frankly, I never got any relief from it.

Tramadol is an opioid pain reliever. It is a synthetic drug that is not derived from opium like a “true” opioid medication. It tends to be weaker than most other opioids and, because of that, is thought to be less addictive. As a result, more and more doctors are prescribing this medication as a first line of treatment for pain. It is very similar in chemical makeup to the SNRI drugs Effexor and Cymbalta. Due to this, it is sometimes prescribed off-label for patients who have both pain and depression. Patients who respond well to this medication will typically respond very well to long-term Effexor or Cymbalta treatment. Hope this information helps meet your needs.
