Dear tramaqueen: Please tell me what your w/d was like. I have been taking 9-10 50 mg. trams per day and have been taking them, in increasing numbers, for 1 1/2 years. July 9th is my jumping off day and I'm scared sh-tless. I'm in my mid-50s, so it's not gonna be any cake-walk, I know, but if I go over x-amount of time w/o my meds, I'm really to lose it. I'm SO FREAKING FRIGHTENED!! I loved your post, rocking out to the Beach Boys (I love you, Carl!), after 3 weeks. Please tell me what you did to cope. I'm going to NA on Monday, but July 9th is it. I want my life back---I'm so angry with myself and this damn drug. I'll still need Bentyl for colitis, but hopefully, will never need another pain med as long as I live!! Love and God's blessings, Joan
You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Your doing fantastic..I was on tram for about one year. IT was given to me for nerve and tooth pain. I took 50 mg. per day. As time went by I used it only when I had nerve or tooth pain. Soooo long story short ..I was in w/d a lot and felt awful for some time.
When I looked up the medication and found the emily post site I knew I was in trouble with the Tram. I never took another pill and did go into a rather awful w/d. The brain fog thing is different I think for everyone. I just felt ..OFF..and not clear minded. Could not concentrate on a movie or book. I had a hard time writing..That's still hard for me. Hopefully my brain will return to normal. I have been off of the Tram for about 2 mos.
