Smile Going off Ultram update

I just wanted to give a quick post and update all of you on my progress and how I am doing. I have been able to cut the Ultram down to 1 1/2 pills as of yesterday (sunday). I will probably stay on that for at least 5 days before cutting down again. Yesterday was a really tough pain day but I managed to take only 1 1/2 pills.

I am doing a bit better on the patch 37.5mcg/day and the side effects from the increase are starting to diminish. I am less drowsy, fatigued, and lightheaded.

Thank you to everyone for your words of encouragement and thoughfullness. It definitely helps to know that I am not alone in dealing with this chronic pain.

Re: Going off Ultram update

You are doing great Brian!

You might consider giving yourself a little more time on the 1.5 regimen. When I went off of Ultram my primary care doc consulted with an addiction doc who recommended a very slow reduction plan. He would probably recommend staying on the 1.5 for at least two weeks, then go to 1 tablet and stay on that for up to 3-4 weeks. Then to .5 and so on.

You are doing super - keep it up and please keep up the updates.
