Tramadol is a very fully drug...but, for simplicity sake, think of it as an antidepressant and opiate combined. Add with that the risk of seizures, and you'll be fighting withdrawal from a drug with a ton more withdrawal symptoms. Best just to bite the bullet and wrestle with the demon you brought...and, not start a fight with a new one.

Agree with GA Guy and Sarah...I tried CT last week while having to work (I had no choice) and it was the worst I ever felt in my entire life...My good friend GA guy helped me tremendously...I had some benzos which helped and I'd take a mild vic 2x day to ease the shakes and other symptoms..I finally have a refill and am starting a taper plan...the pills are safely in the hands of my wife who has been a tremendous suppor to me...

And I agree with Sarah....it is definitely evil...and the doctors don't warn you of it's addictive properties.
