Hi and Welcome,
Tramadol needs to be slowly tapered off as if it's done too fast it can lead to seizures. It is the Anti-depressant effects of tramadol seems to do the damage.
I did a slower taper over a month and I was up to 400-500mg a day.
The head fog is normal and the body pain, but the best thing you can do is go see your doctor to get help with this as well.
Keep us updated
Thanks I really appreciate the response. I'm cutting it completely starting Monday. I'm so nervous!
Hang in there. The worst part of Tramadol withdrawal for me was the hot flashes and sweats, especially at night. I really think that most people don't understand how addictive Tramadol is. I was taking more than 500 a day too, so I feel for you!!
