it will delay them basically, it will lessen them, but you are simply replacing a long acting opoid with a short acting opoid, so, yes, but if you run out of tramadol, the methadone wd is going to come back.
I agree with Patti, you are really trading one for the other. Are you trying to taper your methadone usage or are you treating a pain problem?
Patti has a terrific testimony of tapering from suboxone on her avatar. It is worth checking out. You can apply this method to the methadone, I would imagine... or you may consider going on to suboxone for a time to help deal with the wd's as well as give your brain time to heal.
