I have been a Tramadol user for about 6 years. I have severe back pain from spinal disk deterioration. I also had some back surgery. I want to get off this drug and over a period of about three months now I have tapered down from 6 [50mg] a day tp 2 [50mg] a day. The problem is I now suffer from insomnia, (I writing this at 3AM), When I try to go to sleep I get this restlessness in my arms to the point of twitching and jerking sometimes. I'll put up with some pain if I must and just use Tylenol, just to get off this drug. My Daughter is now in the hospital from Tramadol abuse of up to 20(50mg) pills a day. I recently found her on the kitchen floor in what appeared to be a grand Mal seizure. OK I'm new to forums so I guess I'm rambling. I just want to know how long it might take me to get CLEAN of this drug and not have any more withdrawal symptoms?
i also am taking tramadol 200mg 2 a day i've been taking them for 7 years for my back and neck,some days i don't have any,but i don't suffer from withdrawal,i can stop them at any time and i still don't have withdrawal but when i don't take them i'm in heaps of pain.i would like 2 know why some people suffers from withdrawals and some don't?my friend is taking the same tablet and she get withdrawal to.
