Overview
Ultram is a prescription drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to manage moderate to moderately severe pain in adults. Ultram is sometimes prescribed to treat pain associated with lupus. Ultram is also known by its drug name, Tramadol.

Ultram is an opioid, or synthetic opiate, that works as an analgesic (painkiller). Ultram is believed to work by reducing the perception of pain.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, regular use of opioids - even as prescribed by a doctor - can lead to dependence. If misused, opioids can cause overdose and death.
