I have Clay colored stools for four days. Have not changed my diet. And the only medication I take are probiotics and ultram. Is that normal ?
Not sure of question: I'm not clear on what you're seeking - a non-narcotic pain reliever or specifically one in the class w/tramadol.Tramadol is pretty much unique in the way it affects brain's pain receptors w/out all the side-effects of opiates.Other less addictive pain meds are NSAIDs, anti-depressants, nerve stabilizers like Lyrica (pregabalin) or Neurontin, etc.If you need to change meds, talk w/ your doctor before doing so. ...Read more
No: there are no reports of any such false positives with tramadol to my knowledge, or in the literature. I checked several authoritative sites and cannot find any references to this. I found that on drug bulletin boards, many people (all anonymous, ? authority) say that it does show up as methadone. It definitely does not cause false positive for methamphetamine. Meth can mean either. ...Read more

I am bipolar1. Take Saphris, (asenapine) Lamictal and Lithium. A dr. prescribed Ultram for pain relief. Could Ultram cause mania or interact with my psych drugs?
Not big risk: Ultram increases serotonin like some antidepressants so it could be a trigger for mania, but if you're on lithium the risk of this is low. Almost all psych drugs are listed as "CNS depressants" meaning they can make you sleepy or reduce brain function in some people. As is Ultram. And adding another one increases the risk of sedation, but in a young otherwise healthy person the risk is low. ...Read more
