I've been taking Tramadol since january 2009. Started on 300mg daily, went up to about 900mg daily at my worst, although i still, even recently would have a bad day or weekend and overdose. My worst o/d was 27 (50mg) tabs in one evening. I am on my third day now of NO TABLETS! About 80 hours since i last took any. I wonder what symptoms are typical at this stage and if anyone has any insight in to what i should expect still to come? Any help gratefully received! Thanks
Symptoms may include anxiety, depression, anguish, severe mood swings, aggressiveness, brain "zaps", electric-shock sensations throughout body, pins and needles, sweating, palpitations, restless legs syndrome, sneezing, insomnia, tremors, headache, among others. In most cases, tramadol withdrawal will set in 12 to 20 hours after the last dose, but this can vary. Tramadol withdrawal lasts longer than that of other opioids; seven days or more of acute withdrawal symptoms can occur. Seizures are possible as well. I would call a detox place and see what they think you should do. I wish you the best of luck and hope this information helps. Good luck!
