Hi there!! I'd definitely taper because of the risk of seizures. I went cold turkey from a 5 year, 50-60 pill a day addiction, not fun!!! Please stay away from this drug, the withdrawals from this are horrific and last a long time. Keep posting and let us know how your doing.

I just came off tramadol. The withdrawl process is insanely horrible. Not trying to scare you but it is. Tramadol is highly addictive. I'm on day 13 and feeling so much better finally. Good luck! Please don't do if cold turkey, you can have seizures.
