Will tramadol lessen the symptoms of methadone withdrawal?

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.

Best wishes,

thanks Jill, I actually got the biggest tip, to exercise by walking, from a methadone community member who used to be here, named mpvt. I did write him to tell him it worked like a charm, he MAY be on the "light" side of this site, forum/discussion boards. I joke about this side being "the dark side," of the site. I wondered to if the person was just running low, or out of methadone, of if they had stopped it on purpose. Hope they feel better soon at any rate. Patti free discount card
