Come clean fast!: Let your pain management doc know that you usually take oxycodone for chronic pain, but that you had more pain and took the tramadol. All of these controlled substances will be seen in your urine drug test. It's better to let them know that you forgot to tell them before you have to face accusatory questioning like, "So, where did the tramadol come from? " ...Read more

I need better pain management meds for chronic pain from shrapnel inside me that can't be removed. I currently take tramadol and oxycodone?

Many wish there was: Many chronic pain sufferers wish there were better choices! Medical marijuana is a worthy possibility and - lucky you! It's legal in your state. Other than that - I was trained in a VA pain program in the dark ages and we used hypnosis training, lots of education, individually selected exercises, therapy and it was great! You might find the pieces and create your own program. Wishing you well! ...Read more

Possibly: There are various options for drug testing, some more sensitive than others. So it is possible that it might show up. But if you have a legitimate prescription for the medication you should be allowed to explain the finding and may have to have a letter from your prescriber, otherwise it would be a violation of the americans with disabilities act. ...Read more

I have a drug test tomorrow for work and I went to the ER 4 days ago and they gave me one tramadol will it show up?

No: Most likely will not show in your test on day 5, especially only one pill. Besides, they do not test for tramadol since it is not a narcotic. It is an opioid and is controlled in a few states. If, in the unlikely situation, that an issue arises, you can always get a copy of your ER report to prove things. Get it from the hospital medical recordanyway and be prepared. Good luck in your job search. ...Read more

My younger sister has been taking tramadol regularly for the past 2 weeks. Will tramadol show up on a drug test for work and will she pass?

My younger sister has been taking tramadol regularly for the past 2 weeks. Will tramadol show up on a drug test for work and will she pass?

Not likely: Although Tramadol is considered an opiod receptor agonist, amongst other things, it is not structurally similar enough to other narcotics to be detectable via a urine toxicology screening. The only way to detect it is to specifically check for it in the blood. Also, even if a substance is detected in a drug test, most companies allow it, as long as it is prescribed by a physician ...Read more

I am taking tramadol to reduce heroin withdrawal. I have a drug test monday, I don't want to be punished for trying to get off. Will it show up in t?

I am taking tramadol to reduce heroin withdrawal. I have a drug test monday, I don't want to be punished for trying to get off. Will it show up in t?

Not usually: Tramadol is not chemically related to opiates derived from the opium poppy, which is generally what screening drug tests look for. It is not particularly effective, in my experience, for withdrawal, and in some cases can actually make it worse. It depends on how extensive the testing they do will be. If they subject it to confirmatory testing like gc/ms, it will show up. ...Read more

I took 1 (one) 50mg tramadol hcl. Will it show up on a drug screen for a job? I don't take them daily.

Depends: Tramadol is not chemically an opiate, and most urine drug screens will not detect it. However, this depends on how extensive the panel your employer is using. If you are taking someone else's prescription, or are getting this medication without a prescription, you have more of a problem than passing a drug test. You need to think about whether you have a drug problem. ...Read more

How long does it take tramadol not to show up in the umbilical cord? My friend has been taking them her whole pregancy. 8 days away from delivery.

Unfortunately her sense of conscience is only hitting her now. Chronic use of tramadol can lead to withdraw symptoms of the baby. Her baby's doc needs to know for baby care ...Read more
