If I took 100mg of tramadol one day a week for 12 weeks

Customer Question

If I took 100mg of tramadol one day a week for 12 weeks would I fail a hair follicle drug test. I'm a 44 year old female. And I had the prescription for my dog that died a couple months back. I would usually take it on my day off. 100mg once a week. Not once a day.
JA: Is this a time sensitive issue? What type of specimen are they testing?
Customer: My last dose of tramadol was 9/13. I work in healthcare. I may not be hair tested at all, but I'm paranoid bc if I were to get caught I couldn't really plead ignorance
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I take Ritalin 20mg a day
Trazadone 50 mg PRN for sleep maybe once a week
I have prescriptions for these.

Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. SH and will be helping you out with your concerns today.

Typically tramadol is NOT one of the drugs tested for in drug testing. While it theoretically could be detected, I doubt that this will be tested.

So there is a VERY SLIGHT chance that tramadol would be tested. So I would not worry too much at all.

In fact it is RARELY ever tested.

Let me know if you have more questions.
