Ever since I've been on tramadol I have no drive or desire. It really *****. I can not wait to get completely off of these pills so I can enjoy sex again. I really miss it:(
You forget that you gret these feelings. I was on pills for 5 years.
It's so crazy how they numb you
Hi Ouchie, I wouldn't really know about the sex thing, cause it's kinda been a while for me..... LOL! But, I'm happy for you.
As far as the leg cramps and soreness, try taking Epsom Salt baths. They feel wonderful and relaxing, and will help with the cramping and soreness. Take care, and stay strong! You are doing great.
I'm married so I wouldn't know anything about sex. But I do know about achy legs. The baths are a great idea. Also, get some Potassium in you either in food or supplement. It will make a big difference.
I was on the pills for about 8 years. I've even noticed that on days that I've taken less I'm getting my desire back. It's definitely a good motivator to get off these things. I'm tapering right now and wish I could fast forward through the coming weeks.
My husband and I have sex every day, I used to just think of it as a chore (how horrible am I) but the last few days I've been so excited And anticipating the night.
I swear it helps with wd.
Good luck with ur taper missy , when will you be off??
It was a chore for me too and I know my husband could tell. He doesn't deserve that. If I stick to my taper plan it will be 12 weeks for me to get down to zero. It feels so long away right now. Sex and money are pretty motivating though. It's such a waste of money. I can't wait to be done. It's tramadol though so I can't just do CT. I have to wean down.
I also have completely lost my sex drive this post makes me hopeful that it will return and it is only the pills I am only 33 and my husband who is also on them after a knee replacement but also is a addict and have been on them same time as me LOVES sex it does not affect his sex drive so he isn't understanding why I miss our real self and our relationship and sex and just feeling again..I am a Christian and feel a million miles away from God and even on days I pick up my Bible to read which used to be everyday I just keep feeling like I have failed him so many times even tho I k ow that isn't the case I just miss everything:(
Hi there, congratulations on day 9 !!!
Im also married and wouldnt know anything about sex : )
But when i was using, i thought i was a porn star....
My partners on a sub taper and im in recovery, so we both just arn't interested right now.
I still get night cramps every few months in my feet. I pop 2 nurofen zavance and it helps to take the cramps away. Anti-inflamatory's are a blessing for those sorts of lingering issues.
Take care : )
