Tramadol is not routinely tested for, so should not show up on your urine test. Unless, of course, the testers take the highly unusual step of testing SPECIFICALLY for tramadol, in which case it shlould be undetecable in your urine after 3 to 5 days. Tramadol is not a controlled substance, and if you have a prescription for it, even if it was specifically tested for, there would be no problem

Unfortunately because we all metabolise drugs at different rates, no-one can tell you definitively how fast you will clear these from your system. Al that can be done is to work on the basis that, for example tramadol is gone after a maximum of five days and xanax after a maximum of 7 days.

CAN I GUARANTEE A MAXIMUM OF 7 DAYS 1 FELLOW SAYS HIS MOTHER WAS ON XANAX FOR A FEW YEARS AND IT WAS STILL FOUND IN HER URINE MONTHS LATER THANKYOU FOR YOUR REPLY I WILL THANKFULLY ACCEPT YOUR ANSWER, I HAVE GIVEN YOU MY AGE, WEIGHT ECT CAN YOU BE ANY MOREPRECISE I HAVE BEEN ON AND OF THEM FOR FIVE YEARS
Expert:  Norman M. replied 6 years ago.
I cannot be more precise for the reasons I have given you, and the figure of 7 days comes from two reputable references.

Your age weight and so on are of no use - what is important is how your body metabolises the drugs and that depends on your liver and kidney function.

The figures I gave you assume normal function, and are realistic maximums.

Sorry, I cannot do that for you - the site rules forbid it.

The fact is that for anyone to try to give you a dignosis online will be difficult - I suggest that you go on to Google and enter a search query "Psychiatry Online"

I'm afraid you are going to have to post this as a completely new question in the ,medical section, rather than in mental health.
