Tramadol Drug Testing


Tramadol can be detected in drug tests that specifically include it as part of the panel of drugs being tested. Health Street offers various drug testing options via hair or urine specimens, which are available for both employers and individuals. Urine drug testing is most common, which looks back on drug use up to one week. Hair drug testing looks further back at approximately 90 days. Just choose the location for the tramadol drug test and complete the registration. From there, a barcode will be sent to you or the person you specify, and should be presented at the facility upon arrival for the tramadol drug test. Testing results are reported quickly, accurately, and stored securely in our online portal.

About Tramadol

What Is Tramadol?

Tramadol is a type of opiate (narcotic) analgesic, which is a class of medications that alters the way that the brain reacts to pain. Even though the drug is meant to be used to treat moderate to severe pain, it is sometimes abused by people in pursuit of its euphoric high. Since the high can feel calmer than many similar drugs, some people mistake it as a safe drug to use recreationally. However, the abuse or misuse of this drug can lead to a variety of troubling side effects.

Tramadol Other Names:

Tramadol is commonly known by some of its brand names, including Ultram, Ultram ER, and ConZip. There are also several tramadol street names, some of which include:

Chill Pills
Intended Use and Effects:

Tramadol is a medication that is used for adult patients who are experiencing moderate to severe pain. This drug may take the form of a tablet (including extended-release formulas), liquid solution, or capsule.

Side Effects of Tramadol

Tramadol use may result in side effects. Some of these may include:

Dry mouth
Difficulty sleeping
Mood changes

When abused or misused, tramadol may cause more serious side effects. Some of these may include difficulty breathing, swelling, heart rate changes, becoming unconscious, and hallucinations. Serotonin syndrome may occur if used with monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors or serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), which can increase the risk of seizures or other severe side effects.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it safe to take tramadol and Adderall together?

User's age
Does tramadol show up on a drug test?

Yes, tramadol can be detected in a drug test. However, the type of test may be a factor in whether or not it will show up. Urine drug testing is more common since it is a fast, effective, and less expensive option, but it does look back on a shorter period of time (up to one week). If you need to identify drug use further back than one week, Health Street's hair drug testing option can identify usage approximately 90 days back.

Why drug test for tramadol?

Tramadol is classified as a Schedule IV substance under the Controlled Substances Act, and should only be used as recommended by a qualified medical professional. A tramadol drug screening can determine if an individual is misusing or abusing this drug, and potentially even open the door to recovery for someone who may be at risk for addiction.
