Is the drug "Tramadol" considered a narcotic?
If it's not classified as a narcotic but is as strong as one is that because it's man made?
What I mean to say is metaphorically speaking If Tramadol were a street drug it would be considered a designer drug correct?

50 milligrams of Tramadol is considered the equivalent of 10 mg of Vicodin. Sold on the street, it would be illegal just as any other prescription drug sold on the street.

Here's how Wikipedia defines designer drugs: Designer drug is a term used to describe psychoactive drugs which are created (or marketed, if they had already existed) to get around existing drug laws by modifying their molecular structures to varying degrees.

So no Tramadol would not be a designer drug, since it was designed to relieve pain, not get a narcotic around the drug laws.

"Tramadol is a narcotic-like pain reliever."


No it isnt a narcotic, as both my mom and my hubby is on it and i asked our pharmacist if it was a narcotic and she said no cause it has the same ingredients of tylenol just stronger...

Tramadol is a good drug for those who do not get benefits from common analgesics(Non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs)It is also morphine derivative but less potent.There are so amny morphine derivatives available in the market.Somebody use as analgesic,some for addiction,some for euphoria,some for premadication,some for relieving cancer pain,some for unproductive dry cough.But Tramadol has a good effect that it does not creat dependance and it does not increase acid secretion in stomach leading ulcer.

Not exactly. Vicodin and Oxycontin are man-made too. They are synthetic forms of a heroin-type drug. Tramadol is a man-made drug also. It is not considered a narcotic but is said to treat pain like an opiod drug. I've taken all three of these meds and can tell you that tramadol worked for a few years for my pain. I have fibromyalgia. It never made me high and it also has a lower incidence of addiction. Now, I have to take hydrocodone for my pain because tramadol just won't cut it now.

It is not considered a narcotic but from what I have been told it is just as addicting and the withdrawls are just as bad if not worse than that of opiates ( vicodin, oxycodone, etc. ). If you want some info from people who know first hand what Tramadol can do to you then go to www.drugs.com and click on community forums and ask this question there. There are a lot of people on there that are either on this drug or trying to recover from being on it.

Tramadol is an opiate agonist. This means that it helps opiates work, whether natural opiates, or the sort you take. As to street drugs - I don't know enough about them to speak intelligently. Like most other drugs, it has good and bad uses; it was simply developed to help people in chronic pain to deal with it.
