In brief: Tramadol

Tramadol is a rather unique analgesic drug that is indicated for moderate to moderately severe pain, headache and neck pain included.
Tramadol is not technically classified as an opioid analgesic. Instead, it is classified as a centrally acting synthetic analgesic compound and therefore is not a scheduled narcotic drug.
