Tramadol’s half life, at which half of the medication has left your system, is six hours. So, it should be out of your system in approximately 12 hours. It can be picked up by drug screenings up to about 4 days.

A half life of six hours gives a time to elimination time of 33 hours not 12; it takes 5.5 half lives to get to zero.

Now we’re starting to mix apples. My answer is correct as far as effectiveness goes and I should have made that more clear that I’m referring to effectiveness in the system. If you’re talking about being picked up on drug tests (plasma half-life) then, yes, it’s closer to the number you describe although there are other factors that effect plasma half-life. It’s not a simple math calculation.

It stays in your system for about 7 hours, but can be detected as much as 40 hours after taking it.

It will depend if the dose is slow/sustained release or not.
