I have been taking tramadol for about 3 months (13 per day) and when I tried to stop I got unbelievable withdrawal. Can I detox with percocet? I never cared for them so don't think I'll be switching addictions. Also, I took suboxone yesterday, about 1/4 and then another 1/8 and another 1/8. Last 1/8 was at around 4pm. I have a splitting headache now, can I take a percocet? I hate suboxone, it gives me a headache a lot. I may be better off detoxing with percs.

Hi going nuts,
The Suboxone may prevent the percs from working at first. Are you in chronic pain? You might want to ask your doc about this. Opiates can be great for chronic and debilitating pain, as you know, yet very addictive.
Quitting trams cold turkey can be dangerous, it can cause seizures, so please be careful. Also there is an SNRI quality to Tramadol, so you may find yourself a bit depressed after being off them for a while. If so, talk to your doc asap!
Best wishes to you,
