Ultram ER taper help please?
I've been taking 200 mg of Ultram ER every night for the past 5 months for discogenic pain in my C5/C6 disk which was injured last June. The physical therapy, dynamic traction control, and steroid injections have been so helpful that my pain management doctor took me off Ultram today.
I am feeling a lot better painwise, but have read too much about tramadol withdrawal that I'd like to do the best taper I can with my remaining pills. I have 19 200 mg Ultram ERs left in the bottle.
How should I taper them to minimize any withdrawal I might go through?
Also, I have quite a few Norco 10's left over as breakthrough pain medication I could add into the taper if they would help during the taper?
Any help is very much appreciated!
