I took 100 milligrams of Tramadol on at 3:00pm today

Customer Question

I took 100 milligrams of Tramadol on at 3:00pm today Saturday and just found out I have a drug test on Monday at 9:30 am. Will the Tramadol be out of my urine by that time? The test is a 14 panel extended opiate test and if I do not pass I will lose my job. I weigh 112 pounds and do not have a prescription.
JA: Is this a time sensitive issue? What type of specimen are they testing?
Customer: Urine and yes it is time sensitive.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I also take soma but that is prescribed..the tramadol is not.

Myself Dr Josh- and I’m happy to help with your question today.

Well, Tramadol has a half life of about 8 hours so when you take one 100 mg pill it can take 5-6 half lifes to get down to less than 1% of the pill in your system.

To make you more clear it would take about 48 hours or about 2 days for the tramadol to get out of your system.

After 48 hours, Tramadaol, would be undetectable.

As you said that you have take Tramadol at 3.00 pm today Saturday, so it would be out of system by Monday 3.00 pm.

You can get tested after 3.00 PM Monday, After this time, you would surely pass this test.

If possible, you can make a request to drug testing agency, to conduct your test after 3. 00 PM Monday.

Sorry to say, but if you get test done, Monday at 9:30 am, You may not pass this test.

You can surely pass this test after 3.00 PM Monday.

Hope this helped
