Ultram, the brand name for Tramadol, is a synthetic prescription drug that belongs to the class of opioids (narcotic pain medication/analgesics). It is a schedule IV controlled substance and it is typically used to treat patients with moderate to severe pain. Ultram can be habit-forming and can produce unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. The withdrawal symptoms experienced can often drive the individual to continue seeking out the drug. When Ultram is combined with other substances or prescription drugs, the risk of accidental overdose significantly increases. Most opioid deaths are the result of respiratory depression.
