... these side effects??? From restlessness to depression not sleeping nausea feeling spaced out no sleep at all etc.. the list goes on. Please help I have been taking tramadol for 6mon. Now and can tell I'm defiantly addicted to them now that Im trying to stop cold turkey I'm going crazy but I'm afraid if I try to wing myself off I will never quit. My doc. Prescribed them to me for my back and they did work I also felt happier. I just know I need help and am addicted to them.
