Thank you for the note....You "WELL FEEL BETTER" as the time goes by...It just really takes time...I'm just 10 mos. out and finally feel good again. I have done two tapers in the last year. One off of Tram and the other off of benzo's...So there is life after perscrition drugs after all...Just keep posting and let us know how your doing...Everyone here is going thru the same ****...If you have panic, can't sleep, depression and sweating a lot..it's all pretty normal. I can remember feeling like I was walking thru sand and I also had brain fog...It all goes away ...I'm very proud of you...your doing the right thing..
Peaceful wishes from California

more.....sorry....I took 3 clonidine for 3 days 2 for 2 days and then 1 a day. It really helps with those first 4-5 tough days as well as the residual anxiety later...... lots of hot baths...the restless leg situation is just CRAZY at night.....but you can DO THIS Honey...... we are here to help
I admire your work and your dedication to it...it takes a very special kind of person to do what you do.....just KNOW that this Tram w/d can be done (Heck if I can do it anyone can) but it does s*ck--- no way of getting around that...just know it won't kill you (cause it won't) but tram addiction just might.........

Lydia - good thinking on the wean....I would suggest a few changes to your pattern.....5 a day for 1 day, 4 a day for 2 days, 3 a day for 2 days, 2 a day for 2 days 1 a day for 2 days 1/2 a day for 2 days and then stop you will know the night AFTER the last tram so about 36 hours after last tram just what you are dealing with...you will probably HAVE to take 3 days off work...no matter how much you want to show up ...from my experience (cause I felt the same way) it takes a good 3 days of holy h*ll...get a heating pad ...also consider getting a script for clonidine (look it up) a blood pressure pill used for opiate w/d symptoms you could probably buy it on line but you MUST be sure how to take it

I just read your post about coming off of Tram..You can do this..Just start tapering very SLOWLY...Tell your doctor what's going on...The depression" WILL" lift in a few mos...I was also VERY depressed after I stopped using Tram...It's been almost a year and I am feeling good again..If you need help I'm just a click away.
Peaceful wishes from California
