I feel like a lazy bum without tramadol. Why is that? I don't feel like the euphoria is so much that it would make me hyper.

I personally think that your energy IS your euphoria. You feel so much better taking it because it gives you a sense of well-being, being able to do things you couldn't without the medication.

I never thought tramadol was strong enough to give any type of euphoria. But lately I have heard so much about how addictive it is and how bad the withdrawls are from it. I took it for a very, very short time. It wasnt written on a narcotic script because the doc was a PA and not able to perscribe narcotics and when I had it filled it didnt have the narcotuic sticker on it. Is it not a narcotic but still addictive?

It causes dependence but it is not addictive. Unfortunately there are some who get the two terms mixed up. I'm not sure if it is even scheduled, but most narcotics are in Schedule II or III.

Ninja, it is not scheduled (now you know and have a piece of rather useless information to rattle around in your brain!! at least it isn't rattling in mine now).
