Hi I also am on Tramadol 200mg twice daily and have been doing so for more than 10 years. I was at one stage takeing 4*200mg daily untill I told my Dr and she told me that (here in Australia) the maximum does was 400 mg a day. My tram is slow release and I too found that if I for got to take my tramadol I would at first feel just a lot of pain and now If I forget to take it I feel extreemly tired and then quickly go just about comatose, My wife cant wake me for all the tea in china. SOOO much for this wonder drug I am hooked on it.and the reason I was told to take it is that I was on160 mg of Morphine twice daily. Comming off of the morphine is a hell of a lot easier than comming off of Tramadol at least that is what I have found to be so in my case so far. However you can do it and you prob need to do it. And you have come off codien wich your body turns into morphine anyway my DR told me so youve done very well.
I would see if you could check into some sort of hospital or the like if you can if you are not already (and thats if you can find a hospital with an empty bed). I feel for you haveing to do this but it will be the best in the end. Are you not under a DRs supervision.
ps I hope this is of some encouragement to you I am not looking forto the day I have to follow your footsteps
im in the uk, the max dose is 400mg aswell, i was only addicted 2 the codine at 1point, my bf took me 2 the doctor whos the best he tried to wean me off them bt i took the piss that in the end my partner took our son and helped me get off them he sat with me 4days straight and il admit iv had few slips with them bt never 10 30mg at a time,like i said it was only codine then my doc put me on tramadol,i started of 3 a day now its past 8 getting outa hand my mum and bf both know,bt thats it,it started as a laugh when i was 15-16and at school,now im nearly 23 have great family and bf,and the best son, love my job yes junkies can work and have a career! just so scared, physical for obv reasons..it hurts and its just terrible,but im scared ill be different attitude wise,mentally im a weakling bt im this feisty 7stone blonde whos always been known for bein a nutter,loud,brill 1 liners 2people,arguing..just scared incase i lose her know wat i mean? hospitals no option they wil just sub 1drug for another
I was on tramadol for a year exceeding the 400mg dose a day and when I came off of them it was hell... I took tylenol pm to sleep at night (because I just couldnt sleep) and after about 3 weeks I was back to normal. Stay strong, keep busy and your insides wont feel like they are being put in a microwave every second! It goes away!!
