Hi jeanbak,
I've heard that tapering (as Donella is doing) is the best way to go with Tramadol w/d.
As far as a tapering schedule, I'm sure Robert or Donella could help with that.

How much are you currently taking, or what was your highest dose and how many times a day were/are you taking it? That info is paramount. Both of them will need that info to help you taper off of it.

Best wishes,

I was on 400mg for years and fairly recently weaned off. The best way is to lower the dose by 50-100mg/week until you're off (never cut them in half). The last 100mg was the hardest for me. I did have some oxycodone I took when I was completely off and still felt the withdrawals. They suck for sure but the slower you wean the easier it will be. Kim.

I always point people to get help from a physician with withdrawal as they can help you with other meds. This is ugly stuff and it would really help you to go that route. Hope this helps.

You should never stop tramadol all at once. The potential for having a seizure is too great. Tapering is the only way to get off of it. Please go to the link below & read about this drug before stopping completely without the help of a physician... Mary

Hi, hope you don't mind me answering the question under your comment? I keep commenting before answering questions and then don't have the opportunity to reply properly!
Anyway, I used to have a really bad Tramadol addiction, 1000mg a day at my worst. I know how awful it is to be in the grips of addiction to this and to get off them. Weaning is the very best way to stop. You must take it steady to have a successful taper. As Kim has said, reducing the Tramadol by 50mg a week is advisable. During the withdrawal you may suffer from depression, insomnia, lethargy, cramps, nausea, but there are things you can do to help this... L-Tyrosine are a natural supplement that are great brain food! You do need to have been taking them for a few weeks before getting the best benefit from them. They will help you think realistically. Valerian and Melatonin are great to aid sleep. Again, it will take a few weeks for the Valerian to kick in, but the Melatonin will work much quicker.

Tramadol is not a narcotic pain pill I don't see how or why you would suffer from withdrawals. Good luck.

Delila 18 Jun 2012

Hi hun, sorry to poke my nose in, just thought i would recommend you read the link that Mary has provided. Tramadol are a synthetic opiate that also have ssri properties and can be highly addictive and very difficult to discontinue. Just thought i'd let you know : )

Well nledesma1981, u have no idea what ur talking about. I've been in tramadol for a year taking 300mg a day. And I'm on day 3 cold turkey with other prescribed meds to help such as Valium. And I'm still suffering from intense WD. So until u do what most of these people and myself have done, shut up and don't tell us how we r feeling.

Some pharmacies and Doctors consider tramadol to be a schedule III narcotic.. of course this is widely debatable.

From my experience, yes people can WD from tramadol.

I'm no expert and not sure but I would assume that the WD from tramadol would be similar, though milder, than WD's from opiates such as Vicodin or percocet. I am going through opiate WD myself and Mary632009 had instructed me to see the "thomas recipe"

Hope this helps and best of luck to you.. you are not alone in this fight. If you need support you can hit me up anytime. :) free discount card
