How should I take tramadol?
Take tramadol exactly as prescribed. Never take tramadol in larger amounts, or for longer than recommended by your doctor. Follow the directions on your prescription label. Tell your doctor if the medicine seems to stop working as well in relieving your pain.
Tramadol can be taken with or without food, but take it the same way each time.
Do not crush, chew, or break a tramadol tablet. Swallow it whole. Breaking the pill may cause too much of the drug to be released at one time. This medicine is for oral (by mouth) use only. Powder from a crushed tablet should not be inhaled or diluted with liquid and injected into the body. Using this medicine by inhalation or injection can cause life-threatening side effects, overdose, or death.
Hi and glad your thinking about weaning
I just did myself. Like many others I have went off and on of tramadol for years. I thought I was gonna have to go to the ER, when I did cold turkey 300 mg a day. I weaned down and the withdrawals(always uncomfortable), were substantially less. I could actually function. I do recommend starting vitamins, high vitamin c, and such. You can do it, I am the most weak minded person. I cut mine down eventually into fourths(at the very end). I know you feel the effects, but hang in there, they will subside. The less your body is dependent on, the less uncomfortable and lengthy the withdrawal are(in my opinion) Please keep us posted.
