Husband has had restless leg years. Has chronic back pain, old logging injury. Takes tramadol. Helps w/ restless leg a lot. I have noticed it seems to take more than it used to to 'knock' the restless feeling. Scary to think about what might happen if he couldnt get it (never know when they may take something off market). I want to know if anybody has been able to taper off or stop taking it and experience their previous 'pre-tramadol' level of restless leg, or does it make it become permanent (like the druggie 'twitch' from meth). Thanks for any info on 'quitting' experience, and/or long term effects r/t restless legs that you can share.
