My husband has been taking tramadol for about 5 months. The pain has now gone away. He quit taking the tramadol but now he has started getting symptoms of drug withdrawal. What is the best way to withdraw from it?
I was able to wean with little to no withdrawal and I took (1) 200 mg extended release tramadol tablet every day for 12 years. I dropped down to (1) 100 mg extended release tablet for a month and then my physician put me on immediate release tramadol (1) 50 mg in the morning and (1) 50 mg in the evening which I took for a week. I then dropped to (1) 50 mg in the morning for a week and then the next week I split the 50 mg in half and took 25 mg for a week and then quit. I had read horror stories about withdrawal and was fearful of having them but I had no problem with any stepdown of the medication. I will say that I’m a Christian and I truly believe God and prayer were the primary reasons I had no problems.
