I have been taking Tramadol for over five years. At worst, I was taking only 300 mgs a day. I tried to quit several times but could not take the withdrawls. I am trying a new taper plan and wanted to know if it has any chance of working. I am adding ten minutes to the time I take the drug each time. I started at one every six hours and now I am at one every 8 hrs 40 minutes. Honestly, there have been no real problems yet, but I know it is coming. I am sleeping less and nose is running etc, but no aches or nerve issues. I worry as the time increases it will get harder and harder to maintain this schedule. Is this a better plan then just dropping a pill a week (that never worked for me)? Thanks to all who answer, I really need the support. I am too afraid to tell my wife, she would think much less of me if she knew I was an addict.
