Tramadol is addictive. I took it for 13 years for fibromyalgia. Even though I was on a low dose as needed, I found I needed it every four days. It was not true pain but withdrawal pain. This drug is a synthetic morphine. I went through three weeks of withdrawal including terrible pain, anxiety, feelings of something under my skin on occasion, and chills as when something creepy startles you. I feel so much better and am in less pain than when I took it. I'm now weening off other meds that have made me sicker like muscle relaxers. Get off this drug!!! Ween down. I did it cold turkey because I truly didn't take much to begin with. My mom and sis got off of it too and also feel better. This is a bad drug as are all painkillers except in emergency cases like after surgery or with a broken bone. They work better too.
