Am I in bother?

#1
Recently on summer leave I hurt my back in a car accident and my friends parent gave me some painkillers to deal with it.i have recently found out that they were 50mg tramadol pills.
When I got back to work we got CDTd that first week. When the stripey asked had I taken any medication I simply declared them as painkillers. I have since found out she had been prescribed these and am now a bit worried that they are going to giv me a positive result and I will get hoofed.
Do CDT test for such things as tramadol.? I had taken them 7 days prior to being tested.

I dont think they test for prescription drugs. To be safe, when they ask, I just mumble.

Tramadol is a powerful morphine based prescription painkiller drug - I know, I was prescribed them following a Triple Heart Bypass five years ago to manage the pain following the breaking of my sternum for the operation and subsequent stitching up of the chest post op. I was advised on how to manage the medication, dependent on the level of pain experienced. I started on 8 x 50mg capsules twice a day and, because I still experience a level of pain in my scar occasionally, I have now reduced this to one capsule, twice a day. However, my GP, monitors all my medication, including Tramadol, on a regular basis.

As a guideline, when I was taken into my local hospital following my operation (and after I had been prescribed Tramadol by my Consultant at the hospital where I was operated on), nursing staff in A & E were only permitted to give me Paracetemol as a painkiller until a Doctor authorised the Tramadol. Needless to say I suffered an agonising 12 hour wait for the drug to be prescribed.

Depending on the number of tablets you were given, my advice to you is to front up with the truth if questioned. I am not a qualified Doctor or Chemist, but because of the content of the drug, it may show up as an opiate.

I'm not sure whether it is illegal in the UK to take someone else's prescription drugs. I have on occasion taken my wife's Tramadol (back operation) at time of need (slipped disc), mentioned it to the doctor who seemed untroubled by the info.

I was prescribed Tramadol in theatre (Afgh) earlier this year. The original diagnosis was a muscle in spasm in my back, once that was sorted I had the deep joy of coming off the drugs. Howling, really, really howling! Next time I think I will man up and fight through the pain. The come down was worse than the original pain...... Cold turkey..tastic mate!

Oh how I laughed when they were licensed and the drug reps said they'd not cause dependency.

You've just saved the NHS thousands...

Dn't bother with doctors, just get people in touch with people who have similar pain and they can prescribe to each other.

A sort of peer based medical system.

We'll assume a few convulsions and getting bunged up wont be too much of a drama...

On a serious note though, it is a misused drug for 'recreational use' so you never know CDT may check for it.

Not as hard as I laughed climbing the ******* walls (well tent fabric actually but you get the idea) Lying drugs administration bastards!

You may be onto something Frog Boy but why stop there? Why not ask the intelligent looking bloke at the end of the bar on a Friday night out, maybe the pissed tramp at the bus stop or the Yummy Mummy collecting her toddler from Playgroup? Facebook, Twitter ................ the possibilities are endless. If anyone wants a prognosis and treatment plan for a broken ankle then I'm your man. Maybe I should start calling myself Doctor?

Drug reps as honest as a politician.
Rearrange the words in that last post (drugs, honest, politicians) add as necessary, to make something which also reflects the current pile of halfwitted inbreds running (term used very very loosely) the country. Slightly off thread I know but when a new avenue presents itself.......

On the original thread, I suggest that if found out (CDT positive) just confirm that you were given the gear following an A&E admission, I was a couple of years ago, and there was no record of it anywhere. You are not a junkie and have a valid reason for using the pain killer. Don't panic any decent Officer will accept your explanation of the situation, unless of course the quantity in your system is shown as prolonged usage "tramadol nights' parties. Of course if there are any number of underlying admin issues which could also indicate possible drug misuse then you are fucked. Only you know the full situation.

3. 'Man the **** up'
