Hi, I’ve been taking tramadol for about 2-3 weeks now I don’t exactly know the mg I looked it up and it says 325mg/37.5mg but I plan on taking my last one tomorrow morning I’m just really scared because when I wake up and haven’t taken it all night I get extreme anxiety and can not leave my house because of it I usually take 2 pills a day one in the morning and one at night, someone please tell me how long with anxiety will last after I stop taking it?
"Do not stop using this medicine suddenly, or you could have unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. Ask your doctor how to safely stop using this medicine."
Stopping tramadol is just like kicking any opioid drug and may cause withdrawal symptoms worse than just anxiety.
Please don't try to do this on your own... ask your prescribing doctor for a reducing dosage schedule to follow.
Best regards, Wildcat
It took me about 2 months. The first month was pure HELL each day it was a bit better. Im on my 3rd month and finally feel normal. Im sleeping, not irritable, RLS is completely gone. Take it 1 day at a time.
Your Doctor should be taking you off them slowly although the tramadol is for pain! and not anxiety. I would defenitly consult your Doctor about the anxiety issues
Mine always lasts 4 days. I’m serious. I do taper off Tramadol whenever I stop it and also add a small dose of a benzo (that I only take for those few days) but the worst of the withdrawal from the tramadol is over in 4 days.
Could you describe to me how the anxiety is making you feel? I'm wondering whether I'm going through the same thing
