I have been on this medicine for over a year for chronic neck and leg pain. My DR said I have a herniated disc but the neurologist said it looks very minor. I was addicted to Vicodin once and the withdrawal was terrible. I do not want to go through all of that again. I am on Tramadol 400mg daily. I am tempted to stop taking it after reading all these comments. Any advise on how to come off of this drug? How long does it take before you feel normal again? Any advise is greatly appreciated.
