Hello Jgobea and welcome to the forum. I don't have personal experience with Tramadol but there are others on this forum that do. Someone will come along and give you some great advice about it. But IMO Tramadol is not a drug that should be stopped abruptly. Your bro needs to ween off as going c/t could cause seizures. He should talk to his doctor about getting off as this is a very dangerous drug to just quit.
that is a very low dose i think that plan sounds good i was on 1500 mgs of tram a day plus about 30 percs aday but he down to 1 pill a day thats great he should hav very little w/d but tram w/d are dangerous it can cause seizers but at that dose he should b okay
i have been addicted to tramadol for for the past 12 months prior to this is was and still am addicted to codeine. in the past 12 months i have used 1320 tramadol 100mg M/R as my doctor has just informed me and everyday i will purchase 30 Solphedine Max tablets. I have just spoken with my doctor and i have finally admitted that i have had a problem since 2003! I want to come off all these tablets and actually feel something normal and natural but i am so scared of the withdrawls. i take that much tramadol i actually have OD side effects where i can not lift my head or even get up for a full 254 hours. The doctor now will see me every 7 days and gice me 14 tramadol and as i type this i have already necked 5 in 1 go (ashamed of myself) Please could someone help me and give me hints on how i do this? I will also be seeing a mental health nurse who will see where the under lying problem comes from. Thank You
Is your doctor helping you at all? It would be much easier on you to taper off, one drug at a time.
Start your own thread so you don't get overlooked here. Go back to the main page and click on "post a question". Give us an idea of how much you take per day. It looks like 6 or 7 Tramadol ? How much codeine?
