HI Welcome to the forum.....firat off a 75% cut in dose is going to feel like getting ran over by a truck we no longer post taper schedules in the forum so about all I can tell you is go slowly
if you expect it to work most addicts  su ck at tapering hence why so many just jump off....tomorrow its going to feel like you jumped off....it is best to get a doctor involved with doing this that knows your health history detoxing can be hard on the body your heart and B/P need to be good to do it at home and your doctor knows best where happy to support you wile you do this just want to be safe about it good luck and God bless......Gnarly

I'm not a doctor but Just from personal experience, Tramadol withdrawal should be done slowly if possilble.  My dosage was lowered every three days by one pill which was too fast. (withdrawal is brutal and can be dangerous) I would suggest going down 1/2 tablet weekly and then 1/4.   I felt depressed, had no energy, no motivation, muscles hurt, ears ringing, completely out of sorts!  Thank goodness I didn't have to get up and go to work.  I finally started to feel better after about a week and a half.  Hot baths helped with the muscle aches and pains. I also took Ibuprofen, vitamin C and dranks lots of water.  Each day gets a little better and after a month I finally started getting my energy back.  It's been two months now and I feel like I have my life back. Just from research that I've done, Tramadol contains an SSRI which explains the depression and sadness after abruptly stopping.
