What changes will we see following this new status of tramadol? Will patterns of abuse and dependence decrease as a result? Will new methods of diversion be created as a result? Will toxic exposures decrease on a national level? Will other countries follow suit with stricter control for prescribing and dispensing of tramadol? The answers to these questions remain to be seen, but this new scheduling of tramadol by the DEA is a step in the right direction.
Given all the information that has come about as a result, my advice would be to think twice prior to prescribing, especially taking into account underlying factors for abuse and overdose potential in patients and pain severity.
You may be charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance (PCS) for (6) possessed (7) a specified controlled substance (8) listed in Schedules I, II, III.

Schedule III:. Some of the more well-known substances which are classified under Schedule II include: hydrocodone, morphine, oxycodone, cocaine, amphetamine, and methamphetamine. A substance may fall under Schedule II if the substance has (a) high abuse potential; (b) the substance is medically accepted or accepted with severe restrictions; and abuse may cause the user to suffer from psychological or physical dependence. Second, Schedule II substances are seen by the Legislature has a “little bit safer” if used by the general public.
First and foremost, Indiana law, similarly to federal law, has adopted a classification system which is based on different schedules.
