I have been taking tramadol slow release for an injury to my arm since early 2014. Was taking high doses such as 200gm twice a day together with voltaren 50gm. The tramadol made me feel so much better physically and mentally. I was very enthusiastic about creating any kind of work. Because I was very itchy, I tapered the high dose to 1 100gm slow release once a day. The itch persisted and my arms were continually bleeding because of the scratching. I decided 3 days ago to give them up altogether and I just feel awful. Depression, tired, restless legs and body syndrome, insomnia as well as being very cold. I know I will feel better at sometime in the future, but please someone can you tell me when? Thx
