i am in desperate need of finding a scheduling regime to safely taper off of ultram. I was injured in hockey, put on this med and have become dependent on it. I know I can quit however I have no knowledge of how to taper and limit the withdrawals. My own primary care physician denies to me that this is even an additive med and advised me to quit cold turkey. This will not work and he is oblivous to how addicting this med can be. A recommendation would be greatly appreciated.
