Tramadol Withdrawal Confusion and Dizziness
I'm trying to get off of tramadol prescribed by my doctor.  I've tried a few times which is hard since the doctor gives me like 180 for 30 days and by the time I seem to come to the end of my usual 3 to 4 day withdrawal period, my brain tells me I'm good and I go pick up another prescription.

My big problem is that I get really "weird" for lack of a better word and almost dizzy when I go through withdrawals.  I'm in a constant haze, can't concentrate or anything.  Plus there's the horrible night body aches which keep you up all night etc.  I've been on some kind of a pain killer for 5 years since I had a catostrophic knee injury.

Anyone got any clues for a bit easy withdrawal?  Maybe like methodone for tramadol people?  Or something similar?

No methadone for tramadol that would be like going from the frying pan into a bon fire .Best way to get off tram is a slow taper so your body can adjust to each drop .That seems to be the best way with tram ..

I am on day 2 from getting of Tram. I am a recovering alkey and knew I was getting into it bad when I started to get Tram on line.  it was quite obvoius I had an issus when I was taking 10 a day and I was still in pain.  Wouldnt you believe my pain has gone down now I have not had any?  yeah I feel like my skin is boiling and my anxiety is the worst it has ever been but I am not taking anything to feel "normal".  I am also on anatripolyn (?) for depression.  I have been reading alot of posts from people and I knew what I was to expect coming off this crap.  And to think it wasent that great of a drug.......Grrrr
