Buy Tramadol

Because tramadol (Ultram) is classified as a controlled substance, it may be harder for people to buy tramadol through illegal means. However, buying this drug without a legitimate prescription or from an unlicensed pharmacy may lead to serious complications. For instance, if you obtain tramadol illegally, you may be getting a substandard or dangerous product, which could cause serious side effects or toxicities.

Buying Tramadol: An Overview

Tramadol hydrochloride (Ultram®) is a prescription pain medication. In July 2014, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration reclassified tramadol as a Schedule IV controlled substance (prior to that date, tramadol was not classified as a controlled substance), further acknowledging the significant potential for abuse for this drug. Because it is now a controlled substance, it may be more difficult for people to buy tramadol through illegal or dishonest means.
 

Is It Safe to Buy Tramadol Without a Prescription?

It is not safe to use tramadol that has been bought without a prescription, for various reasons, such as:
 
  • As a prescription medication, tramadol is not considered safe for use without a healthcare provider's supervision. Some people should not take the drug for certain health reasons, and tramadol may interact with numerous other medications (see Tramadol Drug Interactions). Without the supervision of a healthcare provider, people may be more likely to suffer dangerous tramadol side effects or toxicities.
     
  • Legitimate pharmacies will not sell tramadol without a prescription. Because you can be assured that you are getting the "real thing" (not a counterfeit or expired medication) only from a legitimate pharmacy, buying this drug without a prescription increases your risk of getting a substandard or dangerous product. Some Web sites offer to provide a prescription for tramadol after a "consultation," usually consisting of a short questionnaire. This is not considered a legitimate prescription, and no legitimate pharmacy would fill such prescriptions.
     
  • Needing to buy tramadol without a prescription is a good indication that you have a problem with tramadol abuse or addiction. These problems are serious and can cause life-threatening complications.
