withdrawal

I have been taking vicodin and tramadol for over 15 years and really want to stop taking them because they are ruining my life. But the pain from withdrawal is unbearable. I am at my wits end n don't know how to ease the withdrawal symptoms. Any ideas?

I'm almost 5 weeks in from recovering from a tramadol addiction. Please be aware that tramadol is very hard to withdrawal from. They may last a little longer but it's so worth it! Gabapentin was prescribed to me for 6 days and was a God send but is NOT the answer and especially not for everyone. Sending you prayers

Hi, welcome to the forum. Getting here and looking for answers is the first step. The withdrawal is uncomfortable at the least, but it's a 14 day span at the most for the physical symptoms. How much and how long and what drug have you been using. There is always someone here who can offer more specific advice.
