Tramadol has a hell of a withdrawal. I was on them for years.
What would help would be if you told someone....it would help to have someone hold you accountable.
5 DAYS....you've gone 5 days!! Are you detoxing b/c you ran out and the reason I ask this is to look at the idea that your running out early...which means you don't have a handle on this. A few more days and you'll be on the other side of this. What did you do that got you clean for the year?
I’d say hang in there!! You have made huge progress, and I totally get that “addict” part of you screaming for more drugs.
If I read this correctly, you are off the tramadol completely for 5 days? If so, you are through the worst part, if you were taking 20 a day.
Can you just not go pick up the prescription?
I’m not a doctor and I’m not giving medical advice— just speaking from my experience. If you don’t have the tramadol sitting in your cabinet (or wherever) then you can choose to stay off of it. And check with your doctor, the one prescribing the tramadol….s/he would be happy to know that you are off of it.
May the Lord bless you, give you strength and peace!
Let us know how you are doing.
