DRUG CLASS AND MECHANISM: Tramadol is a man-made (synthetic) analgesic (pain reliever). Its exact mechanism of action is unknown but similar morphine. Like morphine, tramadol binds to receptors in the brain (opioid receptors) that are important for transmitting the sensation of pain from throughout the body to. Tramadol, like other narcotics used for the treatment of pain, may be abused.

Tramadol isn't that bad. I've been prescribed it in the brand name "Ultracet" for back pain. It was quite effective and caused no side-effects, unlike some anti-inflammatory/muscle relaxers I've been prescribed for back and muscle aches.
They make it sound bad but it seemed pretty harmless when I took it.
I banned the OP and I hope he does not come back. However, maybe leaving this post up will be like leaving the heads of your enemies on pikes so they know what happens if they attack.
...ok, so I was going to post a funny picture, but Google Images didn't find it. Ever see that Monty Python bit (I think it was from one of the movies) where someone says something about a head on a pike, and they show a fish (a pike) with someone's head stuck to its top? That would have been way more funny in the form of a picture than this text.
