UK laws are not that far from the US laws, and Tramadol falls under Schedule 3 in the UK controlled substance act. To buy Tramadol in the UK, you will need a full prescription. However, Schedule 3 drugs are exempted from ‘Safe Custody Requirements’. Here, we shall provide information on how to order Tramadol online from the UK safely.
However, if you are short of time, you can simply skip this article and go directly to the pharmacy. All your questions can be answered by the pharmacy’s own customer support.
UK Rescheduling of Tramadol
The act passed congress in March 2014 and took effect in June 2014. Tramadol, an opioid-like pain reliever, was an OCT medication. However, followed by the USA, the UK also decided to reschedule the drug by recommendation of the National Health Society (NHS).
Now, Tramadol is a Schedule 3 prescription-only drug in the UK. However, it is not under the ‘Safe Custody Requirements‘, which means that people who possess Tramadol don’t need to lock it up in a safe, unlike Schedule 1 or 2 drugs.
Can I order Tramadol Online Legally from the UK?

How to Order Tramadol Online from the UK?
The first thing to do is to find a legit but international pharmacy that is not located in the UK. Remember that if the pharmacy is under the same jurisdiction as the customer, they can’t ship the medications to you without a prescription.
Therefore, avoid the pharmacies that promise to ship overnight (UK-to-UK) delivery. They are definitively fraudulent. It may take 10-12 days for an international pharmacy to deliver the order, but it is a lot safer.
The second thing is to confirm that the pharmacy offers a ‘discreet packaging system‘. It is when they remove the medications from their original packaging and repack them to avoid Customs detection.
The Third thing to do is to check whether the pharmacy has a good customer support system. It is a sign that the pharmacy is legit. They should have many communication channels (Chat, Text, Phone, Email), and a trained customer support team. They are easily identifiable by the use of their English. A good pharmacy invests in training its agents.
The last thing to consider is that the pharmacy website should not have ‘Testimonials’. This is a trick to convince the customers that the pharmacy has a lot of satisfied customers. However, think about it this way. If you are a customer who is buying medications without prescriptions, would you leave your full name and comment on the pharmacy? Real pharmacies will have ‘Product Reviews’ on the product pages instead of ‘Testimonials’ on one page.

What is the Price of Tramadol Online?
In British standard, the price should be £ 2.50 GBP per pill. More than that and it is too expensive. Les than that and the pharmacy probably does not have quality medications. People try to buy things online because they are cheap, but too cheap is never good.
What Should I do with the medication after I get it?
Since Tramadol is not under ‘Safe Custody Requirements’, you have no problems after you have received your order. You can keep it anywhere and carry it along even without prescriptions. There will be no issues.
Yet, we recommend that you transfer the medications to an unmarked container just to avoid any legal issues. If the medications are not labeled, there is no way to tell what the medications are until tested in a laboratory.
Of course, it is your responsibility to keep them out of the reach of the children.
One Last thing to Remember
Tramadol may not be a real opioid, but it does act like one so if you order Tramadol online from the UK, be sure to use it with caution. Here are a few precautions:
- Never take Tramadol with alcohol
- Don’t take it if you have to drive.
- Consult a doctor if the side effects become uncomfortable.
- Pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers should definitely not take Tramadol without a doctor’s advice.
