Yesterday I tried tapering my Tramadol down to 75mg from 100. It didn't work. I was extremely tired! I slept for 4 hours after I got home from school even though I got a good night's sleep the night before. When I woke up, I was still tired. But when I tried to go to bed the RLS kicked in and there was no chance of me getting any sleep with that going on. Plus, I had to get up and go pee every hour. Finally about 12:30 I took 1/4 a pill and rubbed some herbal oils on my knees that are supposed to help with RLS. I managed to get some sleep, but it was a restless sleep. Not at all rejuvenating or comfortable. I am worn out today.
In the end, I took 87.5 mg yesterday, which is less than the 100 mg I usually take, but just cutting back that little bitty bit was not without inducing withdrawal symptoms.
We'll see how things go tonight. Hopefully better!
