    I've never known for tramadol (Ultram) to have ever been a scheduled narcotic in any state in the Union. Even though it is narcotic-like, it is not a true narcotic.

    NM considers it a schedule IV, I believe.

    It IS a controlled substance now in many states.

    It is controlled in my state. It has a high potential for abuse.

    I referenced Epocrates for this answer, and I've never known Epocrates to be wrong lol, but it states "Status varies by state. May be OTC, OTC w/ restrictions, Rx, or Schedule II-V; status determined by state laws."

    Federally, there doesn't seem to be a control over tramadol or variants.
