Tramadol Addiction – Psychological and Physical Risk

Unlike other opioids, Tramadol, a centrally acting analgesic, has non-scheduled status under the Controlled Substance Act. As such, some clinicians believe that developing a Tramadol addiction is unlikely. Even though Tramadol is only about 10% as potent as morphine, however, there is still a significant risk of developing a Tramadol addiction, if this pain reliever is not taken as directed.

One effective tool that addiction researchers can use to track trends and developments in Tramadol use is search data analysis. By examining Tramadol queries, substance abuse professionals draw inferences from the results.

Tramadol HCL – Pain Relief for Humans and Canines

A common occurrence with prescription medication, the most popular searches for Tramadol HCL, also known by its brand name Ultram, involve an attempt to purchase Tramadol online. In fact, “buy Tramadol” garnered almost 180,000 searches over a one-year period. In addition, 10 of the 30 most popular Tramadol searches can be directly linked to the procurement of Tramadol online. Another popular search phrase is “canine Tramadol”, with over 30,000 queries. This correlates to the recent explosion in the development of non-steroidal medications for the maintenance of animal pain.
