Get Prepared to Handle Tramadol as a Controlled Substance
Tramadol-containing products will be reclassified as Schedule I controlled substances starting March 31, 2022.
This isn't a big surprise. Tramadol has the same warnings about dependence, abuse, and misuse as other opioids...and concerns are mounting about these issues.
Plus tramadol poses other risks...such as seizures, serotonin syndrome, and low sodium levels. Now hallucinations can be added to the list.
