In brief: It is not an

illicit substance.
However, it should be prescribed for the user. It will be classified as a Schedule IV substance in the US effective on 18 August 2014.

Agreed. It is not illegal to possess it if you have been prescribed it by your physician and can demonstrate evidence to that effect. If you are anxious about it, carry a copy of the prescription you were given by your doctor with you, or the bottle, which is also good evidence that you are "legally" taking the medication.

In brief: Tramadol

It is not illegal to possess any medication if it was not specifically prescribed for you then why do you have it? An illicit substance like heroin, cocaine, thc is definitely illegal to possess.
Tramadol does not fall into that category.
