Are you dealing with chronic pain or just addiction??? The ONLY reason I would advise you
to go ahead on the Sub is that Tramadol
at high doses CAN
be very difficult to get over, especially if you are dealing with pain. Trams are a little weird because they ARE a weak mu opioid and they have a fairly strong anti depressant effect. Say you were taking 150-400mg of Tram, if your doctor is willing, 2mg Sub taper could actually work for you if you kept it low (1-2 mg) and for a short duration.
