How many trams were you taking a day? tramadol is a slightly different animal than a basic narcotic....its like a souped up antidepressant in addition to a pain pill and that complicates things.....check out the Health Pages for a blog from EmilyPost on tramadol with many other members contributing.....just put her name in the search engine and read up some from other folks experience. Cold turkey isnt the way to stop tramadol...should be tapered because of the almost benzo type withdrawl (withdrawal).   Be safe. Dont tempt a siezure or worse.

Years ago I was on prescribed Tramadol and I didn't like it at all. My own two- cents is that to get off Tramadol you need to wean and do so under the supervision of a physician.

I agree with the above poster about not stopping Tramadol cold turkey however, if I understand correctly, it seems you have no choice. You mentioned your Dr isnt in today and even if she was, you have no money to go. I would say go to urgent care and see if you can talk to a dr there. Im aware that obviously there will be a co pay for that too...maybe they will wave it?

Im sorry you are going through this. Do you have anybody you can call for help? Maybe they dont know about your addiction and your ashamed but this would be the time to reach out. I dont know your situation, but I hope you have someone to reach out too.

If not, just try and stay hydrated and maybe talk some walks to work out the agitation. When I kicked, thats what I did. Just stay busy and try to concentrate on other things other than what your feeling.

Best of Luck

Can you get some imodium (immodium), it helps with some of the wds. Also take HOT baths with epson salt. Nyquil, Benadryl or robitussin to help you sleep a little. I know you don't feel like it right now but walking helps with the rls. But I think Imodium (immodium) is a must... Have you looked at the thomas recipe? It will help a lot with wds.

Immodium
Magnesium
Potassium
Vitamin and mineral supplement
B vitamins
Tyrosine
Benadryl, Unisom, or melatonin for sleep
Heating pad--maybe ice
Exercise as soon as you can
Hot baths

Most of this us from the Thomas Recipe...some my experience. I just posted that the supplement Rhodiola could be worth a try, ESP for anxiety.

I wish you peace...that really sounds hard :(
