Products containing tramadol (Tramacet, Ralivia, Zytram XL, Tridural) will be scheduled as a controlled substance.
Not yet. But it’s still up for consideration.
Health Canada proposed to add tramadol to Schedule I of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA) and the Narcotic Control Regulations (NCR).
The DEA in the United States has also knocked around the idea of making tramadol a controlled substance for years. It’s been listed as one of their “Drugs and Chemicals of Concern” since 2004.
