3) Tramadol - Tramadol is a synthetic opioid analgesic that also has some serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibition properties, but it does not belong to the NSAID class.

4) Lidocaine - Lidocaine is a local anesthetic that works by blocking the sodium channels in nerve cells, and it does not belong to the NSAID class.
