Of course everyone's different. But my son had a full-blown seizure after taking eight I do believe it was Tramadol 50 MGS. Tramadol is not a drug to play with it can be very dangerous. They said he had an overload of Serotonin I was scared to death for him I thought I was losing my son that day and he did withdrawal from it and withdrawing from Tramadol he said was absolutely horrible. I remember the cramping and charlie horses in his legs was unbelievable. Just be careful of this drug.
He was allowed up to 8 a day. I hope this helps you.

I forgot to mention he was on tramadol for like 6 years I do believe. I don't know if he had taken more than he was prescribed that particular day or exactly what he had taken or not taken. Just be careful Tramadol.
He promised me he didn't take 8 of the Tramadol that day and he promised me he didn't take anything else and he's clean and that was like 4 years ago so I do believe him. Again just be careful with Tramadol.
You can look it up and it does say don't take any more than 8 a day. Good luck.
50 MGS. If yours are 100 mgs... I wouldn't take any more then two to three a day.

You still around?
How many mg are the pills you are taking, 50 mg each?
How far have you tapered by now?

6-8 a day 50 mgs each. I have 15 pills left. Is that enough to taper down where im safe??  Yes im ok ty
Dr put me on them about 4 months ago
Bobby, if you're still taking 6-8 pills a day and only have 15 pills left you don't really have enough to do a proper taper.  Since you've only been on them for 4 months it shouldn't be as difficult for you as for those that have been on them a really long time, but that will prove to be more like a crash taper with just 15 pills left and you still taking 6-8/day. We aren't allowed to give taper advise on MedHelp but if you do some research or even ask your dr that is prescribing them to you to put you on a proper taper, that would really be the IDEAL way.  Let us know what you decide, ok?

Bobby it seemed as if you had tapered down a bit and went back up again. You are back to 300-400 mgs a day.
15 is only enough for 2 days.
Can you get more for a proper taper?

Yes i did no i dont think so
Contact your doctor and see if he will prescribe you more Tramadol that's the least he can do for you. And make sure he gives you instructions how to properly taper down Bobby.
Sending you blessings and Good Vibes. Good luck my friend.

Please keep us posted if you would be so kind.
