Potential harm: Tramadol is a narcotic-type pain reliever whose off-shelf use is sometimes prescribed for anxiety. The problem are:that you build a tolerance to tramadol, meaning you can become physiological addicted, it interacts with other drugs; it interacts with alcohol. Mixing this drug with something else or taking more than the prescribed amount can lead to overdose and even death.
