Does anyone have experience using Suboxone as a way to stop a Tramadol addiction? Would you recommend it? Thanks!

Tramodol has not only the addictive qualities, but can cause seizures if stopped suddenly. Do not go this route. You will need to be tapered off of tramadol to prevent the possibility of seizure. I am giving you a website to read. Please skip down to the contradictions part or read the whole thing if you like., but be sure to read the contrdictions! Good luck to you...

Have been on Subs since November for a 40 pill/day Tramadol addiction. I am on 16mgs/day which is what I had to taper up to to help stop the w/ds. Feeling better finally but looking to start to taper soon b/c I have terrible insomnia and get the nods pretty bad during the day. I could never have tapered the Tramadol on my own. This is not my first go round with Tramadol, I was clean for 3 full yrs then started back like a dumb ass!! Stay on the subs as long as u need to. I also needed to be started on an antidepressant after stopping Tramadol. Went into a deep depression b/c of my serotonin levels being out of whack. Tramadol w/d is just as bad if not worse than OC W/d. Did that too, u would think I had learned my lesson but the drugs were stronger than my willpower to stay clean. I folded when times got tough for my husband and I and from the stressors of a high powered professional career. Have now changed jobs and went to counseling with the hubs.
I live for one day at a time right now and stay clean for my two young boys and for my sanity. Because the road I had been on was INSANE.

I agree with kittycat that its stronger but a 4 day taper will not even be close to handling your tramadol withdrawal. I am getting on suboxone on the 11th for tramadol addiction. They just put you on a way smaller amount of suboxone and only once a day then they taper you with the hopes to be fully off and withdrawal free by the 3rd week. A month total is the recovery time from whqt my dr said. I can let you know how the suboxone is once I get it :)
