I have an endless supply of Tramadol...and cash to buy it. I take about 20 50mg pills per day. I wish to discontinue using. How can I do this? Will I be able to, say, decrease my dose by 1 per week...eventually getting down to zero? Please help me with this if you know...thanks very much. Tom
Tramadol is one of the drugs that can be potentially dangerous to withdraw from cold turkey. As you said, tapering is the way to go. You need to see your doctor and get a proper taper schedule and follow it.
When you decrease your dose and begin feeling withdrawal symptoms we can give you some remedies to ease any discomfort you may have.
