Emily, I have heard so many wonderful things about your experience and how you help other people. my husband just got out of 7 day detox program yesterday from Tramadol and alcohol. he was taking over 750 pills a month of the 50 milligrams a month if not more and drinking excessively. I was wondering if you could please email me at tara.***@**** or call me personally. 760-810-8151. I need you help! Please....

Hi Emily

    I was just thinking about you today, how are you? I hope things are good and you are busy with life. Tomorrow is 4 months for me, still struggling a little but without the forum I don't know if I could have done it. Knowing we are not alone is key to recovery, just wanted to say thank you.

Hi Emily I just started reading your journals and I am captivated by them.  Amazing!  I am trying to find a way to follow the j's and I just sent you a friend invite.  I was never on Trams but I'm trying to get clean from opiates, it's been a couple of years for me but I'm still determined to do it.  Thanks for your j's.

I am 30 days today Emily, thank you for being the 1st person who reached out to me and told me I could do it. It's a long road back sometimes slow but I feel proud and most of all the bondage of tramadol is gone. Thank you my friend

Hi Emily, I'm on my Day 17 off Tramadol and was hoping you could drop me a line when you have time as to how long the withdrawals take to completely go away. I'm over the acute phase but I'm deep into PAWS (or so I think) and would appreciate any perspective you may have based on your own experience. Thank you so much!
P.S.
Congratulations on a RECORD number of days clean, CHEERS!!!!

I need to ask if there is a room for people who want to get off of Tramadol? I really need to come off of this medicine, but I feel as though it has completely taken over my life and I'm only 27. I'm scared of coming off of it. I'm even scared that I may not be able to handle being off of it. I'm scared that I could do something stupid or relapse three or more times. I really can't afford to be on it anymore and no one around me seems to understand except my mother. I cannot live like this anymore and I have absolutlely no one to talk to about it. Not even my fiance understands the complexibility behind this addiction. Please help me :'(

Just noticed the typo on my last post. The supplement is Rhodiola. I also took Anxiety Releaf, stress reducing formula, twice a day. Both are fairly cheap at vitamine stores. My first attempt at quitting resulted in no sleep for 4 days and unable to mentally function at all. Using these 2 natural supplements helped me greatly. Tramadal effects Dopamine and Seratonin production. Both are produce during exercise, so doing a vigarous routine each day should help getting their natural production back online. I know that we are all taking it because of injuries/pain, but any little bit you can do helps. Excercising in a pool is the best if your injuries prevent you from doing other forms. Do what you can safely to get the heart rate up. This is helping me, hope it helps others.

Hi Emily, I seen in your pst that you can noy find anything about siezures during withdrawls from Tramadal. I was on it for a year and now been off it for 3 weeks. After the last 3 weeks, I can't beleave all the time waisted by the government on marajuana, they should be stopping the sale and use of this stuff. I went thru all the withdrawl hell and just when I thought  was getting to the end of it, I started having minor siezure like events at night. My wife said that I had 8 such events in my sleep last night. Not sure how common siezures are during withdrawl, but I have never had one before. I had also wiened down to 12 mg for a month before stopping, only helped a little over the first time a tried to quit. Although, I found that taking Rodiola in the morning helped greatly. John

Just a quick note to say hi!  Thank you for your note.  Im so overwhelmed at all the stuff i have to go thru by myself.  Weaning off the drugs and possibly saying goodbye to my marriage of  22 yrs. I so desperatly want my husband to help me thru this but i think ive done to much damage to him.  Im so ashamed of my self and what im putting my 15 yr old daughter thru seeing me go thru all of this. Going to work yesterday was hell as all i did was cry. Im so trying to think of just today but no matter what i looking at the future  alone.   Thank you for this outlet and the support i hope to get

Before I give more years of my life back to addiction. So I have about 100 50 mg tramadols left until I get a refill on jan 5th. I also have about 20 7.5mg lortabs that I never took from a root canal a few months back. I also have chlonodine , sleeping pills, Imodium, and vitamin B12. Which they used all of those at the detox facility I went to. So how can I safely taper myself off with what I have without feeling like death?

Thanks for any input you can give me. I have been reading your blog for a few hrs and you are so strong!

My addiction started with opiets and benzo's from seeing a pain management therapist for my spondylolisthesis and herniated disc it got so out of control that i went to rehab and I have been clean for 2yrs now. So about 6 months ago the Ibprofen 800 I was taking for the back pain just wasn't working so my primary care dr have me tramadol knowing about my past addiction history he assured me it was NOT addictive. LIAR so here I am now 6 months later taking up to 1200mg some days. Enough is enough I remember what hell I went through getting off the opiates and benzo's and I feel like I was tricked because I feel like I'm in the same boat. So I have taken more than I have a script for so of course I will run out before my next refill but I thought why not just quit now!

Well, I guess by more info I was talking about a site or source for more things like what you just said.  

I wondered about the adrenal thing. Or maybe the salt craving is simply because I can TASTE it better again. I just wondered if you have ever heard salt craving mentioned, or if it was a phenomenon people notice....since you have talked to so many ppl who are stopping tramadol.

I think I notice feeling a bit more like myself today, with some actual stretches of motivation.
It feels good. Hopeful. It's been ten days.

Do u know anything about salt craving? It is interesting to me.....I was taking about 2500 mg day. The obvious serotonin imbalance is no surprise, but what is this salt thing? It's crazy. Ever since I stopped using,  it's really marked.
Do you know of any source for info about the process of, I guess the word would be maybe physical detox?
