Tramadol Positive Opiates Drugs Test


Conversation Starter

I have found conflicting answers to this question on the internet and think that it may well depend on how sophisticated the drugs test is and how detailed the analysis is.
The reason I say this is that I attend a methadone clinic and have to give a urine test every 2 weeks. I take methadone daily and the test is negative but the week I took tramadol and the test came back positive for opiates.
I went to see the doctor about this she confirmed that tramadol did make the test positive for opiates. Apparantly it is a fairly crude test that tests for two drug categories including opiates and amphetamines (including cocaine).
Even though the test would only show positive, it could only identify the drug class and not type of opiate. However the test could discern between tramadol and methadone, both being types of synthetic opiate.
In conclusion, there are varying types of drug tests so it is certainly possible for a rudimentary test to give rough results, but I would strongly recommend that you argue your case, if you feel you have one, and ask for the results to be analysed in greater detail. Hope this can be of help. Good luck
