How long does Tramadol stay in your system and is it shown on drug test

Hello to all i'm Angela, after hard struggle in the past with this type of the opiate, i had a hard surgery and i was prescriped to take them again, what was very very hard for me to accept it, i warned my doctor about my past but he prescribed it for short time, i've been taking them for 10 days and 4 days left.The problem is that next week my boss is making drug test, and i was wondering is tramadol shown on the the test,and how long it stays in the system.Can they find trace of it? I will stop the medication because i'm worried about this.And i'm curious if i can clean somehow from my system.
I browsed on this messageboard and read that it' wont show up, so ur advice would be good.

Thanks for your help.
Angela

I don't know about drug testing and Tramadol, but I do know that if you notify your employer that you are taking medication perscribed by a doctor and what that medication is.

I've been in the military and my husband has also. He has had to take narcotics after back surgery and "passed" his drug test during this time because his employer was informed and in his case, had his medical record.

Keep the lines of communication open. I hope you heal quickly.

Hey ,
I can tell you from first hand experience that tramadol will NOT show up! BUT if you have a valid recent RX and anything does show up, the lab will call you 1st and ask for your rx # and pharm name & #, ect before they send results to your employer. You dont even need to tell your boss because the lab report will show as "passed" to them with no comment on anything showing up. NOW that again is if you have a rx will all the info, it will all be done over the phone and over with in about 3-4 days
Good Luck

Tramadol can still be dangerous in high doses or mixed with some antidepressants.

There are some other posters on here who have some stories about it. I've taken it, but after reading stories I refuse it when offered. JMHO

I wasn't trying to say you were. I was just making a statement. I should have made that more clear Pete.

I'm glad to see you one this thread. I feel like such a newbie to this.

Your employer must know you had surgery so you should be Ok. If you're not in much pain anymore, I suggest flushing the rest of the tramadol and switch to ibuprofen at this point.

Tramadol

Hi

Tramadol isn't an opiate. But if you were taking opiates, it takes three days clean for a drug test to be negative.

I know this because I worked with addicts for years in a detox center.

And, as a P.S., it amazes me how little most doctors know about addiction.

Angela, I guess it could have been w/d; it sounds like it could have been an infection or virus too. Did you go to the doctor? ten days doesn't seem long enough to get that dope sick, but hey, I'm not doctor. I'm glad you're feeling well enough to be back.

Tramadol w/d's are nothing to play around with. They are brutal.

Legitimate prescriptions for pain medication are just that -- legitimate. I would get a doctor note now, better still a letter. You will likely test clean by then, and a backup letter will make you feel better. I don't think you have to worry.
