Can Tramadol cause a positive on a urinalysis?
Q: Does Tramadol Hcl and it's metabolites cause positive on a standard urine test which is bought in a shop(cca.4$-7$ cost).

A: Tramadol is not screened for and should not produce any sort of postive on a standard urine test. The half-life of Tramadol is about 7 hours. A mass spectrometer (gc/ms) would probably be required to detect it after a simple urine extraction method. While this is possible to do, it is not standard procedure even for urine tests which are processed in labs. So unless a urine sample is being sent in to a laboratory, it is unlikely that Tramadol will cause any sort of positive test result.
