I am not an expert of any kind, but I am addicted to pain meds, and Tramadol being one of my favorites due to the sense of well-being that I got from it.

You're right, most docs, because it's non-narcotic don't think that it is addictive, but I am prime example of a Tramadol addict. Tramadol is the devil, and since I am more of a binge user, rather than an everyday user, Tramadol, by far has given me the worst WDs out of any other med. The WDs are a nightmare, even with tapering.

I'd hate to see you use another addictive substance to counteract the WDs, but in my experience, if you take Tylenol #3 for about 3 or 4 days after getting off the Tramadol, it has greatly reduced, if not eliminated the WDs. Just make sure you only use the T3s for a couple of days though, so you don't get addicted to that as well.

This is what worked for me, and I have been off of it for a few weeks now and counting. I hope it helps.
