Correction: Tramadol Not Controlled in All States

In my last blog, I said tramadol (the generic in Ultram and Ultracet) was a controlled substance. But that’s not entirely true. It’s not considered a controlled substance by the DEA, but at least eight states now have it classified as a controlled substance, either Class IV or V. In other states, legislation is pending to make tramadol a controlled substance. In my state of NC, Tramadol is not (yet) scheduled, but it was recently decided that it needs to be reported to the state monitoring program.
