It may theoretically. You shouldn't be withdrawing, your dr should be tapering you off of it.

Once again I agree kaismama,
I only wish I new then what I no now about pain meds, I have learned so much through this sight and am glad I found it and met a couple really nice friends such as u!! To the poster, I suggest u talk to your doctor about tappering, trust me if u have been doing them for a while u don't want to go through the horrible withdrawals from these meds trust me... GOD BLESS AND GOOD LUCK

Please be aware that ultram or tramadol can also be addictive.If you are having problems with adddiction to oxycodone & need to get off of them you need to taper down not go to another drug. You also should have a doctors help doing this...

What is safe taper amount weekly? I have weined down from 60 mg to 15mg and held at this amount for couple weeks. My dr of course is no help, told me take less. I want to come off the last 15 mg every 24 hrs with little or no withdrawals if possible. I currently take 1/4 of a 15mg tab every 6 hours. I really want off these and have loved hearing how people can do it. I was switched from Tramadol to Oxycodone in May 2016.

The ultram is a weaker opioid, so, it will delay the withdrawal from the OxyContin. If you are trying to get off OxyContin by using ultram, it is highly unlikely that will work. Basically, OxyContin is a stronger opioid, and most people will be suffering so from withdrawal, they will automatically take more ultram, which can be dangerous, and addictive. Tramadol or ultram, has been linked to seizures also and when people stop ultram after a period of being on them, they then have seizures, so if you are trying to get off OxyContin, and want to know what will work, my suggestion would be to check into subutex or suboxone therapy and some recovery therapy. If you are simply trying to take the edge off of wd until you get your OxyContin, and you are legitmately rx'ed OxyContin by your dr, and he drug test you, you will show positive for tramadol and could lose this dr, and be discharged from his practice.
