I was told 2 months ago at the Emergency Room that Tramadol is now a Narcotic.

Alcohol can show up in your urine for up to 2 weeks after the last drink. It changes it's form as the liver and kidneys are processing the sugars.

You should try kratum its an all natural pain reducer work great and isn't chemicals or what e er it is I e been taking it since December 2013 almost every day and only way it could even come close to addictive or unhealthy is if you get the kind that they tamper with I suggest this to everyone I can that's on them devil pills. Anyways it's the company I get it from is called phytoextractum and get the pain cheap Bali kratom powder. Take it home use one teaspoon of kratom to a medium glass of hot water add sugar and have you some all natural pain killing tea.

Methadone does not show up on urine testing at all. Used to test people for drugs, and these people were on Meth.

Tramadol is not a schedule 2 narcotic...but it is a lightweight narcotic.

As a chemist at a drug testing lab I disagree. No one has mentioned naloxone, suboxone contains a chemical called naloxone and that is what will block other opiates. Suboxone simply fills the receptors hense providing an axon potential which keeps you from feeling withdru, naloxone will bind in the same receptors for A LONG time and if u take any other opiates besides saboxone or subutex then it will precipitate an opiate withdrawal in you.

W*k*p*d*a, source of all empirical knowledge, describes tramadol as an atypical opiod analgesic. At least 11 states, plus the military, control it at Schedule IV (states can be more restrictive than the feds, if they choose). Of note, the FDA has finally realized it should be controlled, and in November 2013 began proceedings to have it federally labelled as Schedule IV. This is currently pending.

I personally have found it useful for pain, but know of others that get as much or better relief from ES Tylenol or ibuprofen. I have also abused it, as much as 800 mg/day. It was a very functional high, mainly because I was totally pain free. Interestingly, I had no desire to drink or take anything else while I was using anywhere from 400-800 mg/day. It also suppressed my appetite.

Withdrawal from such a high dose was unpleasant, to say the least. It has a long half-life, which while somewhat beneficial with other classes of drugs like the benzo's, made it a long-lasting hell for me. The drug acts on the brain's neurotransmitters, so withdrawal can be like kicking an antidepressant cold turkey, which is not recommended.

It doesn't usually show up on the panel tests, but then neither does hydrocodone until you get into the upper number panels. However, there are specific tests for these drugs that can be added, and it WILL show up. My friend was seeing a pain specialist, and in addition to all the "usual suspects" he was tested for alcohol, tramadol, gabapentin, and even trazodone (he was prescribed the last three, but apparently they were looking for regular use and therapeutic values).

I believe you should be clear in 3-4 days, but to be sure try for at least a week. If it worked for you, try to ask your pain doc about an RX for it. The old "my friend has used this before and it worked for her/him, do you think it might be a good fit for me" ruse can open the conversation for you. It would be best for your doctor to know what is going on with your pain and be prescribing appropriately for you. Best of luck!

Unfortunately benzos stay in your system for a long time. After taking 2 mg of xanax I tested positive for 3 weeks! Same with clonopin. Good luck.

What is tramadol?
Tramadol is a narcotic-like pain reliever.
Tramadol is used to treat moderate to severe pain.

Important information

You should not take tramadol if you have used alcohol, sedatives, tranquilizers, or narcotic medications within the past few hours. Stop taking all other around-the-clock narcotic pain medications when you start taking tramadol.

What should I avoid?

Do not drink alcohol. Dangerous side effects or death can occur when alcohol is combined with tramadol. Check your food and medicine labels to be sure these products do not contain alcohol.

I was taking Tramadol for a bladder infection. And I took it the day before I took a ua. And my doctor told me I tested positive for an opiate. He explained to me that they both use the same brain receptors for pain. So even though it is a non narcotic, it still gives a false positive as opiate. Or Hyde condone. Which is also an opiate. I'm bringing my bottle on my next visit tho. Because I want him to know I didn't take an opiate. I took Tramadol. Anyways the answer is it stays in your system as stated above, 48-72 hours. So you will defiantly be good by 2 weeks. But just a heads up, I'm living proof that it does show as an opiate on a ua. I took them with no worries because I asked the doctor 3 times, "Is this a narcotic??" She said no its not. But it shows a false positive. Needless to say, unless you have proof (your Tramadol bottle) they'll still believe you took opiates. Sucks.

I think you're both correct, it depends on the state according to my doctor and in Florida, it is NOT considered a narcotic. You need to check your state's governing laws. That will tell you defnitely. Good Luck!
