I am in Virginia and I currently take 4 30mg oxycodones and 4 100mg morphines a day, I get drug tested every three months. I took some tramadol recently that I found but can't find my prescription for it. Will my doctor see that I took tramadol even though I already take Oxycodone and Morphine?

I have been taking tramadol for on and of for 10 years, but on a regular basis for over 4 year. I am currently on 6x 50mg a day, but at one point I was on 8x 50mg a day. I also am on 10/325 oxycodone, 1x 15mg long release morphine (at bed time), and 3x 1mg of Xanax a day for anxiety as needed. Before my doses were corrected and my pain was fully managed I was being seen by a joke for a Dr referred to me by my family Dr who is a nurse practitioner, and sadly she doesn't write for pain management. At the time, this was 3 1/2 years ago and we were all still trying to figure out why I was in so much pain still after having/healing from my 3rd c-section and birth of my new baby. At that time I was only on 3x daily 750mg Vicodin & 8x daily 50mg of Tramadol. Well I went in for my refill appointment and took my urine test.... well it came back positive for methadone! Mind you I had NEVER taken methadone before in my life, and felt I would never take it! I grew up watching my best friend's mom use liquid methadone my whole childhood because she was an ex-heroin addict, and she was never not passing out on the couch! All her clothes had cigarette holes in them from her passing out with lit smokes in her mouth! So I felt strongly about that medication.

So when this ass-hat of a Dr told me I tested positive for methadone I pleaded in tears to take the test again because I knew a mistake had been made. He flat refused though, saying "lab test errors are less then 10%, and we both know it will be a waist of our time! I will send it out for further testing, but until then I will not refill your medication because it's truly unlikely a lab error." I was in tears! Not that he wouldn't refill my medication, but because I was basically being called a liar! I was nursing my new baby and felt bad enough about the Vicodin I was taking, even though my family Dr assured me it was ok. But I would NEVER have taken something as strong as methadone while nursing him! So I felt I was being called a liar and a s***ty mom!!! So I went home and jumped on the computer to see what would give a false positive for methadone.... to my shock/relief Tramadol was on that list! High doses of Tramadol like I was on can give a false positive...

So if you take 3x 50mg of Tramadol at once (as I did) within 24 hours of a UA you're risking a false positive! If you're not prescribed either medication then you will have a hard time explaining why you took medication that wasn't prescribed to you... (Tramadol) or trying to explain a false positive triggered by a medication not prescribed. Never worth the risk in my opinion! Luckily for me 10 days later after further testing I was vilified, and it showed in fact that I DID NOT have methadone in my system. It was a false positive from the high dose of Tramadol I was prescribed by this Dr! The Dr never even apologized and had the nerve to act irrated that he was wrong, and I was truthful. So I refused to be treated by him after that day! I was referred to a much kinder Dr who took my symptoms seriously and we were able to find a pain management plan that has worked well for me going on over 3 years now.

So my point is, it is a real roll of the dice! Most basic tests do not test for Tramadol, this is true! My results always show the other 3 medications I am on, and never shows false or positive for Tramadol. But I am proof that you never know when it will trigger a false positive for something even worse! So it's never smart to risk it in my opinion! Tramadol isn't even a good source of pain relief! I take it because my serotonin levels are low and it benefits me more with my chemical imbalance then it does with any type of pain relief. Just not worth risking your pain management plan over a medication that isn't very effective for managing major pain.

5 panels won't show up. I've been taking dot testing for years they only find what the 5 10 or whatever the test panel looks for. I was taking tramadol on the tug boat and had May test while taking it and if it wasn't aloud I would have lost my licence and be let go. So look at an old test and see what the panel test for. That's the easiest way to know if your ok.

I was given Hydrocodone and for 3 months and the second and 3rd UA's 30 days apart showed no hydrocodone but did show tramadol. I do wear a fentanyl pain patch, but had not take any hydrocodone or anything else for two weeks prior to the UA's. Where did the tramadol come from. I can understand one UA being FP but not two.

I am a 76 year old woman in relatively good health. I had my back fused in 2010 due to an attack of scoliosis that just happened with no prior symptoms. My rib cage was resting on my pelvic bone and my lung and heart were threatened with another part of the spine. There are no specialists in the city where I live, but Baylor University has a top notch spine center in Plano, TX. I had a very successful surgery there in 2010. However in 2015 we discovered one of the titanium rods was broken clear through-two pieces. Having corrective work done end of this month. My pain doctor and I are new to each other. Four months ago he started me hydrocodone 7.5, 4 times/day. 60 days ago he said the UA showed tramadol and no hydrocodone in my system. Today I was told that the UA 30 days ago was the same result. I can't figure it out. To my mind, I see no way this could happen except by the pharmacy mixing them up. I went there and they said not possible because the Ultram they carry is in tablet form.

I had gotten the idea of a switch because one form of Ultram looks just like the hydrocodone pill I take (kind of oblong, white and scored as well). But we would have noticed the difference right away. So that killed my idea of a switch.

My fairly new pain doc is about to fire ME. He has no reason not to do so, since we have no history to speak of. He has no time invested in me, no bond. I can live without the hydrocodone, but its the trust I need. Compliance is so important for building that trust. He has no reason to believe me and I don't see him helping me figure it out. My state leads the nation in prescription drug overdose deaths so doctors are pulled in both directions wanting to help me but having to lookout for themselves.

It is not logical for me to take tramadol, knowing I am having a UA and that it show up. I take Venlafaxine, Tramazone, generic Previcid for GERD, a multi-vitimin plus extra Vitamin D. I wear a Fentanyl patch #50 for undiagnosed pain and have for 15 years. He renewed that to my gratitude. But he didn't even come in to see me today. Sent the PA instead. Disheartening, indeed.

I have been around medicine all my life. My dad started to med school late. I was five. Mother and I went all the way through. She used to outline textbooks for him. He taught himself to write with both hands so he could take lecture notes without getting so tired. His father was the administrator for one of the bigger hospitals here, so medicine was a big part of our lives in many ways. Dad's classmates were friends and 'many stayed here in town to practice., so there was a lot of professional courtesy going on. Medicine was different back then. No one would have thought of not helping me find the glitch. First of all they would have been fascinated in how the 'impossible could happen. They would have discussed it and done research and would even get advice from other doctors who weren't even involved. Hard to let that atmosphere go. I feel very alone and wonder if you have any ideas?

If a script is over a year old it is essentially illegal according to policies set forth per the DNA. You could try to bring the bottle if you have it?

My pain management doc ALWAYS tests for tramadol. All I've read said it could be 2 - 7 days detected in urine.

On the Lab tests they can check for anything. They have 8 different things ways to check.. I get checked with the EA, EIA, GC/MS. An they can special order tests. for everything here in Indiana. Which mine does for Suboxone. Every doctor I've seen or heard of in this area does. They have put Suboxone on the strip tests now

In pain mgnmnt. Prescribed oxy 10 mg & MS contin 30 mg. I ran out before urine test. Brother gave me 4 methadone 5 mgs. Test showed neg for oxy & morphine & neg for methadone. But showed positive for Demarol & Opana! What the €€!!!? My dr. flipped &says happens again & ur out. I know I messed up w/my meds but I swear I didn't take the other. Oh...I did take 1 perc 10 mg that night & 4 methadone 5 mg at 8 am. Saw dr at 2 pm. I have hep c & cirrhosis. A drs assistant told me that some drugs will show up as others in certain circumstances. Anyone have any ideas? I'm terrified it will happen again & I DIDN'T TAKE ANYTHING ELSE. Do I have any recourse or do I have to roll over again & allow some jerk MD (who is the one who got me strung out on this 10 yrs ago.) treat me like a lower than dirt junkie

Lortab (hydrocodone) would show up on a hair drug test if they were testing for the extended opiates. For urine if they are testing for hydrocodone Lortab would show up but I still don't think Tramadol will show up on a test when they are using GC/MS test. GC/MS is great at isolating molecules so that there are no false positives.

If it is a test for Oxy and they GC/MS testing it is highly unlikely Tramadol will show up. GC/MS is the most accurate form of urine/hair drug testing.
