... over ten years. I’ve never taken more than prescribed and it took me 9 years to get to my most recent 200 mg a month. About 2 months ago I decided I finally wanted off this drug and started to taper myself off. I’m now almost 24 hours without any tramadol and my symptoms are really, very, very mild... is this normal? Really besides a little bit restlessness and 1 episode of loose stool I’m fine. Is the worst still to come or am I going to get lucky and avoid the hell that I hear about so often when coming off of this drug? I’m truly hoping that’s the case but I’m worried that’s just too good to be true. Has anyone else successfully tapered off with so few withdrawal symptoms? I don’t know how this is possible after being on this drug for so long but I’m seriously doing fine... I’ll try to let everyone know how I’m doing.
Hi everyone. I’m new here and just looking for some information. I’ve been taking tramadol for...

I’m sorry I meant that to be 200 mg a day not month.
Tramadol withdrawal can vary greatly from person to person. However one thing I know for sure is that it is almost never that easy. most people start getting the withdrawal symptoms within 12-20 hours but some people have been reported to get them after 2 or even 3 days because tramadol is a drug that can stay in your body for long periods of time especially with long term use. symptoms usually get easier after the first week but the increased anxiety, agitation ,constipation and some of the other personality changes my persist for more weeks or even a couple of months. I wish you luck in your journey. you definitely made the choice in trying to stop this medication. If this seemed too hard on your body, you can always try slow and gradual decrease of dosage over a long period of time. Please keep me updated on how you are doing and I will do my best to help.
