Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 4 months ago

are you taking effexor or venlafaxine? this can cause false positive for tramadol.

False positive results for tramadol were observed in cases where subjects were being treated with the commonly prescribed antidepressant drug venlafaxine. This was a result of the presence of the metabolite O-desmethylvenlafaxine, which has a similar transition to tramadol.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
