Tramadol detox is another version of rapid detox which has been applied for decades.
Tramadol is an opioid receptors agonist/antagonist. Tramadol reduction along with individual pharmacotherapy is a prevention of “cold turkey” syndrome. Tramadol allows a comfortable, short term detoxification, spanning within 4- 5 days (rarely longer).
Tramadol acts as a weak opioid agonist, meaning that it activates the opioid receptors in the brain, but on a much smaller level than other opioids.
Individuals who are moderately opioid-dependent find greater success rates with Tramadol when it comes to detox and preventing relapse.
Overall, it seems like Tramadol is the best medication-assisted treatment for withdrawal and opiate detox.
