Actually in some states it is a scheduled narcotic. You have to look up your state and see if it is a narcotic.

I am on percocet, Ganapentin, baclofen, and a few others. Termdol for break through med recently by surgeon. ..not a junkie I have spinal cord damage due to part tumor removal. Anyway my point I told pain management dr. I was told don't bother it will do nothing for you and is now a narcotic. And I can not tell if I took it or not. They may keep it. Dr said has to do with how much pain you are in. If it is high you won't notice you even took it.

In Minnesota Tramadol IS A SCHEDULED 2 NARCOTIC. I am on it and have to be tested so he can see I I am or am not taking it before he gives me another prescription.

I was just given Tramadol by my doctor and this medication was recently listed as a NARCOTIC. I stopped taking it last night (Saturday - took none) and still today, I have an awful side effect....I can't walk straight, my coordination is way off, and if I turn my head from side to side or up and down, everything I see moves. I came in here to find out how long it will take for this medication to get out of my system because I can't drive or even walk. I'm hoping this is not a lasting side effect. This stuff is horrible.

THE DEA CLASSIFIES TRAMADOL AS ASCHEDULE IV NARCOTIC. IT is a synthetic opiate. Get off the google ppl ur library is much more reliable and not open source.

So was it the Tramadol or the other Rx that caused the false positive for Methadone??

Suboxen blocks receptors. Subutex doesn't

Hi there I am having teeth out next week and the doctor is giving me some diazapam as I am very nervous. The thing is I have been taking 2 x 50 mg tramadol a day for a number of years for arthiritis. I'm a bit scared what will happen when I take these. p.s. I also take 7 x 100 mg gabapantin a day for chronic migraine. I have never been on here before and am a 59 year old woman. Thank you.

You can not take tramadol while on methadone. It will put you into withdrawl. Ask the doc or nurses at your clinic they will tell you that it's a bad idea.

Not totally true. I get tested monthly by my doc also and I was Gave tramadol at the E room for my arm and I didn't have be to see my doc for 2 & a half more weeks so it didn't even cross my mind that it would show up and it did which is why I'm looking this up now. Also they say the bigger you are the longer it could stay. Well I'm only 145 lbs at 5' 11" so I don't know how it showed up but it did and I have in passed taken hydrocodone and passed a drug test 4 days later before. Both times I had only taken the hydros the day and the tramadol the one day so it wasn't on regular basis so I'm confused on how it showed up. Per test. Luckily I had papers in my car showing why I had went to the E room and explained that they gave me s tramadol and doc was ok with it

Please be advised that as of August 18, 2014, Tramadol (Ultram, Ultracet) is now classified as a Schedule IV Controlled Substance. The Board of Nursing wanted to alert you to the change. Since it is not our rule, we won’t be able to answer questions about the specific requirements but whatever your processes for controlled substances means to add in this particular drug. Thanks!

If your a chemist and a u.a. tech you should know about e.t.g. tests for alcohol. The metabolite of alcohol stays in your system for up to 80 hours depending on frequency of use and type of booze consumed as well as the amount. It isn't just magically gone when "the hangover" leaves you. Stop giving false info and acting like you know it's fact. Ass hat

It is not addictive. They do give it to patients whom can not take narcotics.....because of possible addiction, or problems with it from before. I know it used to help me immensely. I started having seizures......not the cause of taking it.....but it can cause they would no longer let me have it. Instead I take Oxycodone. I would do anything and I mean anything to be able to take the Tramadol again and not be opiate dependent. The drug test they have now and more and more companies are using them....... are catching everything. My son could pass one after taking several Hydrocodones. Then having a test 8 hours later. It did not take him very long however to come across a drug test that go him for anything he done within the last month.

Dont take it again, its horrible stuff. I wish they would take it off the market, saying its not a narcotic is one of the most stupid things I have ever heard someone say. Tramadol can cause MAJOR withdraw symptoms taking it only a few weeks. More than hydrocodone. Docs hand it out like its nothing, they need to do something about it before it's a repeat of Percocet.

Just had a hip replacement. Doctor gave me a prescription for Tramadol HCL (50 mg) 1 to 2 tablets, 4-6x per day. As I was told it was not a narcotic (but please don't relive that argument) I decided to take 2 tablets 4x per day and have been for the last 2 days. Now doing research, I learn that maximum dosage is 400 mg per day (vs the 600 that I've been taking). It has controlled the pain so I can do exercises but I am experiencing itching all over my body, some loss of concentration, difficulty in urinating and constipation. I'm going to reduce the dosage to 1 tablet every 6 hours (200 mg per day). Any thoughts as to how long it will take to reduce the concentration in my system and are there things I can do to speed up that process.

Yes in many states now, it is considered a class 4 prescribed drug.. And is in fact tested for in those states.. Because there are many cases of Tramadol abuse, over doses, & death...

Taking a suboxone and opiate together WILL make you sick. Know from personal experience more then once. Have struggled w an opiate addiction for years and have taken the both together. And EVERYTIME, same result, got really sick n usually lasts all day. So if you plan on being an i**** like me better have a bucket beside you at all times.

if you see an older lady or gentleman on tramadol because the dr has precribed it ,* then you will see 4 yourself if its a narcotic!
I saw what it was doing to my father after just a half one and he was in his late 70s and no one can convince me that its not and it can be highly addictive and the drawbacks are nothing to ignore !
