Stopping tramadol

Hi.. I have been taking one 150mg tramadol per day for a year. Do ya think I would be able to just stop this medication without any problems like seizures? Or should I taper down? P.s have never had a seizure before!

Thanks for your help!

Most patients that take that dosage are able to stop without any major issues. Sometimes a bit of anxiety or lack of sleep, but it should not be much.
The issue with seizures is usually with high level patients and usually at intake and not withdrawal.
You should always discuss with your prescribing physician that have knowledge of your medical history, but it should not be so hard.
