How long does tramadol last?

Immediate release tramadol lasts for 4-6 hours. Extended release tramadol lasts for 24 hours. More here on the duration of action for tramadol, tramadol addictive properties and a place at the bottom for your tramadol questions.

Tramadol effects on the body and brain

Tramadol hydrochloride is an opioid agonist medication used as short term analgesic to manage moderate to severe pain. Although experts aren’t exactly sure of how tramadol works, tramadol has been seen to bind parent and M1 metabolites to µ-opioid receptors in the brain and to cause weak inhibition of reuptake of norepinephrine and serotonin in the brains of mice and rats. In short, experts know that tramadol works by affecting the levels of different chemicals in the brain.

Tramadol is a central nervous system depressant. The most common side effects of tramadol are dizziness, nausea, constipation, and drowsiness. When taken as prescribed by a doctor, tramadol can offer mild pain relief as needed. However, when taken to try to achieve a euphoric high, or used long-term to control pain, tramadol can become addictive.  Tramadol overdose amount generally occurs over the 450 mg tramadol daily safe limit, but mixing alcohol with tramadol can increase risk of serious adverse side effects, including slowed breath and loss of consciousness.

Tramadol duration of action

Tramadol hits its peak blood plasma level an hour and a half after the drug is taken. Tramadol has a half life of 6 hours. The immediate-release tramadol tablet will need to be taken every 4-6 hours for continuous pain relief. The extended-release tramadol tablet, used mainly to manage chronic pain, will last for 24 hours, and is only taken once a day.

Tramadol time in the body

After more than a day or two, it’s unlikely that tramadol will still be present in the blood. Tramadol extended-release version may take a little longer to clear the blood than for the regular variety of the drug, as it’s released continuously throughout the course of the day. furthermore, tramadol will show up on urine screens for 1-2 days, but can stay present in hair samples for 90 days or even longer.

How long do tramadol effects last

The effects of tramadol won’t last long if you’re taking an immediate release tablet – only 6 hours at the most. If you take the controlled release tablet (as directed, without tampering), the effects should last all day, a complete 24 hours. However, if you tamper with the controlled release tablet by crushing, chewing, or snorting it, the effects may be immediately delivered to the body but will not last as long. Not only that, but you’ll be running the risk of overdose from releasing too much tramadol into your system all at once.

How long does a tramadol high last

Although some people do not think it possible, others claim that a tramadol high lasts between 4-6 hours, since that’s how long it takes for the drug to be cleared from the human body. In order to get high on tramadol, you will have to tramadol other than prescribed (snort tramadol, inject tramadol, or smoke tramadol or take higher/more frequent doses of tramadol). However, trying to get high on tramadol is dangerous because of the risk of tramadol overdose and addiction.

Tramadol high effects

Tramadol does not trigger euphoric feeling for everyone who takes the opioid. In fact, getting high on tramadol is an adverse side effect with incidence rates of 0.5% to <1.0%. Although rare, tramadol’s pain-relieving effects can also have the side effect of causing a high. However, tramadol can also be addictive, so abusing tramadol to get high does carry risks. In self-reported examples, people have reported some of these tramadol high effects:

  • cheerful mood
  • estatic mood
  • intense happiness

how long will the pain stay away by takeing tramadol

8:50 am October 24th, 2012

Hi Barbara. Pain relief occurs for about 4-6 hours when you take a single, immediate release tablet of tramadol.

I took 400mg Tramadol last night to get high, its coming up to 24 hours now and I still feel off my face! I didnt sleep a wink last night even though I was drowsy as anything. I had no idea the high could last this long

Could you tell me if it is safe to have a general anaesthetic, involving intubation, two weeks after finishing a course of Tramadol? Many thanks, Julia Harvey.

10:22 am January 28th, 2013

Hi Julia. Thanks for your question. An anethesiologist would best answer your particular question. My (unprofessional) hunch is that as long as tramadol is not in the system, and you have passed through the withdrawal stage, you should be OK for surgery and general anesthesia. But please seek medical advice first!

hi: I was prescribed tramadol today for back spasms and promised they wouldn’t make me loopy as other pain pills do. my question is; can I cut the 50mg pill in half to prevent this unwanted high? thanks for your time :)

1:25 pm February 27th, 2013

Hi Beth. Check with your doctors or pharmacist first. Different types of drugs have coatings or release seals that break when you cut the drug. As long as it’s OK with the pharmacist, you may want to proceed.

Jake

Beth I have been taking tramadol and I know everyone reacts differently. I highly doubt that one 50mg pill is going to make you loopy. Constripated maybe but not loopy.

i am supposed to take 300mg max per day.this does not seem to be enough as the pain is there all of the time.how many paracetemols can i add to that dose (or should i ask for more tramadol or something stronger)

11:23 am April 8th, 2013

Hello Chris. If tramadol does not work and you’re experience break through pain, you might consult with your prescribing doctor and ask about the possibility of taking hydrocodone or oxycodone. These are stronger opioids with known risks of dependence and higher risk of addiction, but the stronger medications might help.

chris

I took an immediate release Tramadol last night at 10 p.m. (the whole pill). It’s now 1:30 p.m. the next day–over 15 hrs later and I still feel somewhat dizzy. How is that possible if the drug is only effective 4-6 hours? Wouldn’t the effects be out of my system by now?

Hi, Don’t know if anyone is checking this blog, but I’m going to give it a try.
Back on 5-15-14 was my last dosage 50 mg of Tramadol. I worked with my Pain Management Doctor to ween down. I started 2-2-1 for 5 day, 1-2-1 for 5 days, 1-1-1 for 5days, 1-1-0 5 days, 1-0-0 for 5days. Along with the ween down schedule I was given a Clinodine patch 0.1 mg to year for 7 days x 4 wks. I did great through out the whole process other than the nausea I experienced when eating. I also incorporated the “Thomas Recipe”. I am curious to know how long before I am back to having a normal chemical level in the brain receptors? When will my brain produce its own natural dopamine in the brain?

Any help

1:46 pm May 21st, 2014

Hello Elise. The occurence and duration of of PAWS (protracted, or post-acute withdrawal symptoms) will depend on the level, frequency, and length of dosing on tramadol. Have you consulted with a psychiatrist yet? You may benefit from the short term prescription of anti-depressants as your body continues to adjust.

Christine
8:38 pm June 1st, 2014

I can’t take many pain killers, Tramadol is one that I can, I took some last night for pain relief, usually I am ok, but this is the slow release, last 2 times.. I have gotten extemely high, not so much happy but dizzy, sick and almost an outer body experience, not pleasent for me. 24 hours later my head is over a bucket and i am struggling… I wouldn’t suggest them for people who don’t need them, I will be more careful now and especially as I know they are addictive!

6:21 am August 21st, 2014

Hi Mary. Fatigue is a common side effect from Tramadol. Fatigue has been mostly reported by people with multiple sclerosis, high blood pressure, depression, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis. If you have any of these conditions, please call your doctor.

Hope you can help I’m taking prolonged release tramadol at a high dose, but I’m pregnant and I have severe morning sickness, I’ve been taking tramadol at high doses for 3 years an it wouldn’t usually make me throw up. I’m holding down 100mg prolonged release tablets for about an hour, whilst I haven’t seen them in my sick can you tell me if they would of absorbed in the hour cos a lot of posts say on instant ones absorb in an hour an I can’t find an answer anywhere, I’m not getting the full effects but if I repeat the dose which I know you shouldn’t if just throw it up in an hour anyway. Just want to know if one hour is long enough for them to be fully absorbed. Please help I’m struggling so bad

11:27 am October 13th, 2014

Hi Marie. And congratulations, being pregnant is a wonderful thing. For yours and your babies safety, please consult your doctor or gynaecologist about this issue. It’s something that should be looked into with attention. Without knowing anything about your current health condition, it’s not wise for me to give you an advise.

How long should i wait to drink alcoholic beverages after taking 100mg of ultram? I had 10 teeth pulled on wed and i finished my hydrocodone 7.5mg this morning. In a painful and desperate moment this evening i took some left-over ultram and tonight I’m supposed to go see a friend and we are planning to drink alcohol. If its not safe, i wont drink. I cant find anything about how long you have to wait to safely drink. I dont know if anyone checks this still, but im hopeful i will get some advice. Thank you for your time :-)

4:04 pm February 27th, 2015

Hi Kittie Kat. Tramadol effects kick in 2-3 after you take it. It is definitely not safe to drink alcohol within the same day of administering any amount of Tramadol. Medical scientists have concluded that it takes about 24 hrs and up to 5 days for Tramadol to completely exit your system.

Hi, I had surgery a HYSTERECTOMY . Came home the next day it’s real painful but I’m hanging in there. I only take 2 – 50mg tablets wen I go to bed. So if only taken 6 pills in 4 days so I should be good. Right

3:26 pm June 9th, 2015

Hi Sylvia. Yes, you’ll be ok with the medication and after a short-term use you won’t have any problem quitting. I wish you a fast and successful recovery!

Mary
12:33 pm June 17th, 2015

I’m taking 100mg tramdol 1 – 2 a day. However it does not help. What mg or amount should I take?

2:02 pm June 17th, 2015

Hi Mary. Always take your medication as prescribed, never less and never more. If the dosage you are currently on is not helping, contact your doctor and report this. You will either get switched to another medication or your dose will be adjusted to your needs.

I have chronic back pain from Scheuermann’s Kyphosis. In 2005, at age 53, I tried a monster spinal fusion in an attempt to get my life back. We succeeded in altering the pain, but not reducing it. I live in Latin America now and self-medicate with 100mg tramadol long-acting in the morning along with 50 mg of the short acting. At night I take another 50 short-acting. This has been barely adequate for most of this time, Now I can’t stay asleep all night and I feel crummy and this has been true for several months now. I almost never can recoup with a nap. I plan to go to 200 mg of the tramadol long-acting, but wonder whether I should do 100 mg in the morning and another 100 mg at night (my instinctive choice) or 200 mg at one dose, while dropping the short-acting altogether. What do you think? And if one dose is better, when would be the best time to take it? I have no other medical issues. I don’t take any other meds except for a semi-random (and rare) calcium and iron. I drink _almost_ no alcohol. Addiction is not an issue and, if I am on the wrong site, please feel free to say so. I have an iron grip on what meds I take and what I eat. Thank you.

Hi,

I suffer from Trochantric Bursitis, and I’ve had several steroid injections into both hips over the years to help with the pain.

My ortho surgeon has given me anti inflammatories to help, but they’re no longer working. I’ve moved overseas for work and have started getting bad pain again. I’ve taken 400mg Tramadol tonight and that hasn’t taken my pain away. What would you suggest is a better option? I don’t want to take any more than 400mg in case I hurt myself.

Hello, I have been taking tramadol, which was told to me was not additive but habit forming, quit a difference, at the highest amount being 225mgs a day. I have tapered down to 125mgs a day to try to taper off of it completely. I have been taking it for approximately 8 years now due to a herniated disc. I see people on forums saying the last 50 to 25mgs are the hardest without serious side affects and the side affects are brutal and last a long time. Would you recommend an herbal opiod treatment of supplements to help the process?

12:09 pm February 4th, 2016

Hi,

My father-in-law (a cancer patient, just off chemotherapy and blood transfusion) suffered from an allergic reaction to Ultracet which led to bad vomiting almost leading to dehydration. He had to be kept on IV for more than 24 hours and given injections to stop it. This was a week back, but he still feels like vomiting at odd times and has actually vomited 1-2 times in the last week.

Could this be a continued reaction of Ultracet? Can it stay in human body for such long periods? Or we should start looking for other possible causes of this?

Your answer will be very helpful

Thanks & regards.

Jen
12:22 pm March 17th, 2016

Not an opioid. This is why it was prescribed for me in 1997. My then-doctor didn’t want me on anything addictive to cure my migraines. Tramadol did nothing for my migraines. (Imitrex, et al, were not yet on the market). Tram worked quite well as a mood stabilizer, though. I stayed on 400mg @day, but after a while that wasn’t enough. During a work day I would feel great in the mornings, then experience minor withdrawals by late afternoon. The doctor took the unusual step of sending a blood sample to a genetics lab, to see if I was a garden-variety drug seeker. We learned that my metabolism rate was twice that of the average person. Random tests with other medications yielded the same result. From medicines as useless as Tylenol, to allergy medications to heartburn medications, all the way up to OxyContin, my body metabolises drugs at double-time. The only solution subsequent doctors have offered is to lower my doses, allowing me to take several small doses (depending on the drug) rather than one large one. Of course, this renders the medications all but useless, but doctors will not chance increasing my daily pill count, for fear of turning me into an addict. So migraines, arthritis, torn tendons in arms, diseased lower-back discs, PTSD, severe anxiety, agoraphobia, clinical depression, and insomnia all are half-treated. Has anyone else been diagnosed with this genetic mutation?
Last thought: withdrawals are horrific and do not end. I was taken off for 7 months at one point. Lost my job, increased my appetite (severe weight gain), plunged into severe depression, my husband left me…it’seems a lifetime commitment for some of us. Liver panels every six months show no damage whatsoever. I will continue to take them as mood stabilizers in order to get by with living. Otherwise, I beg anyone: if this drug works for you, think carefully about staying on it for chronic conditions. It may become a lifetime commitment.

I took tramadol for a little over two months post total knee replacement surgery before I weened myself off, gradually tapering down from 8 a day to 1 to none. And, as soon as I stopped taking the drug all together, I was hit with a barrage of unusual symptoms, such as an intense sensation of burning skin on back, arms, hands and face; severe stomach cramping and bloating; severe headaches; fatigue, weakness and some dizziness. That was two weeks ago,. Now, I still am having moderate to severe stomach issues and fatigue with mild headaches and I have lost 10 pounds. But, most of the other symptoms have disappeared or diminished greatly. My question is: can the lingering stomach issues and fatigue still be attributed to 2 months+ tramadol use or should I start seeking other explanations?

I have chronic back pain and was given a tramadol injection, not sure of the dose. Whilst I feel some effect, dopey, fuzzy, I have not had any pain relief at all. It’s been 2 1/2 hours, will I get pain relief and if not, why?

76 yr old male with non- diagnosed chronic pain in hips, legs, knees. 1 week ago
I was given a prescription for 50mg Tramadol every 6 hrs. I feel relief and am considering
taking maybe 50 mg every 4 hrs for more pain relief–that would be 200-250 mg per day.
Doc says ok however I am a recovering alcoholic (17 yrs dry) and have an addictive
personality. Getting mixed answers from pharmacists regarding addiction possibility.
P.S. only side effect for me is constipation.

Hi Jim. Experts claim that slowly reducing Tramadol dose is a safer way to quit the drug. So, I suggest you speak with your doctor to help you plan an individualized tapering schedule.

My husband is taking 50 mg of tramadol. I believe 1-2 pills every 4-6 hours. He has exhibited signs that resemble heroin use. He nods, he hallucinates, he has severe mobility problems. He keeps falling. He mumbles when he speaks and when I do understand him, his comments make zero sense. His ankles, feet, legs, hands and face have been swelling too. I have to babysit him 24/7 because he is a danger. I can’t even leave to pick up some milk. I hid his remaining pills. He has five left and isn’t due to be refilled for 8 days. So, I am baffled as to why he is still “loaded” more than 24 hours since his last dose. I hid them about 32 or so hours ago. Can anyone explain how they continue to effect him like this?

Hi Beverly. I suggest you speak with a doctor about your husband’s condition. Maybe, he’ll need to do a drug test or other medical examination.

Hi Amelia. Please use Tramadol only as prescribed by a doctor. And, do not use it after the expiration date, you put yourself at risk.

Thank you for this info. When I take the med I am full of energy and very calm. I am concerned about because of the pain that comes to my neck and head. I am unsure tramodol is the villain.
