I have been taking 50 mg of IC Tramadol HCl every 6 hours (4 times a day) for post surgical pain for 2 weeks. I would like to decrease it and see if I can manage the pain with less or none of it. However, I have read that you should not stop taking it suddenly, and should be careful about how you ease off of it. Additionally, I have been told to "stay ahead of the pain", but I don't want to take more medication than I need. I am looking for a safe way to decrease usage and see what I can tolerate. What is recommended?
- Tramadol Information for Consumers
- Tramadol Information for Healthcare Professionals (includes dosage details)
- Side Effects of Tramadol (detailed)
