In brief: Definitely, no

Gabapentin (Neurontin), a relatively new anticonvulsant.
It is widely used for both paroxysmal and continuous neuropathic pain conditions. Tramadol (Ultram) is a rather unique analgesic drug that is indicated for moderate to moderately severe pain. Although it binds to mu receptors, tramadol is not technically classified as an opioid analgesic.
