    How Long Does Tramadol Stay In Your System?

    Hello,

    I've been on Tramadol for about 6 weeks following severe sciatica. As a 54 year old and never having taken 'drugs' in my life, I was suprised to notice a feeling of well-being, despite the sciatic pain. About 4 weeks into the treatment I remembered to read up on Tramadol and was completely horrified by my discoveries. I immediately reduced the dose by half (1 every 6 hours to 1 every 12 hours) and 3 days ago, stopped it completely. Not suprisingly, I don't feel very well and have many of the symptons that I read of on web sites devoted to these concerns. I can put up with this as I am determined to rid myself of even the faintest hint of addiction to this medication. My question is though, how long does the Tramadol stay in the system because I would like to help combat headaches and general malaise that are some of the signs of withdrawal, without causing further complications with incompatible over-the-counter pain killers?

    Your comments would be greatly appreciated,

    Regards

    Nigel

    Tramadol should be out of your system within 48 hrs.  If you have any questions or concerns about what over-the-counter pain reliever might be the most helpful for you in this situation, don't hesitate to ask your pharmacist.
