Are Suboxone withdrawals better than roxy withdrawals?

Are Suboxone withdrawals better than roxy withdrawals?

Not necessarily: I have heard patients tell me that suboxone withdrawal is not as bad and have also heard it's worse. It depends on from how high of a dose one is stopping whatever opiate they've been taking.

Opiate withdrawal. Would tapering be a better solution to quitting the tramadol abrubtly?

Tapering is best: Tramadol is a synthetic opiate with weak Mu opiate agonist activity and some re-uptake inhibition of norepinephrine and serotonin.

Taper over 2 weeks reducing the dose 10% per day to avoid withdrawal. ...Read more
