It depends on the strength of the tramadol and how your body metabolizes it. I take 300 er mg and it doesn't stay in my body all day If you are just starting out on it you'll probably be given 50 mg taken as needed Its not a good idea to split the er pills as they will get into your system faster
As stated; depends on dosing with Tramadol, but if only 1 were taken it's ~6-7 hours.
Remember though, a half-life is not "how long before it's out of my system", it's "how long before HALF of what's in my system is gone".
So if a 100mg pill is taken, 6-7 hours later, you'll have 50mg. Then another 6-7 hours later, you'll have 25mg, so on and so forth.
