I been taking tramadol for 3 years now and every time I run out I have withdrawals! Its the worst feeling in the world and its just miserable. I've tried so many times to taper off but it seems like the withdrawals never go away! There's nothing I can take that will take the withdrawals away long enough for me to get off of it. I'm currently tapering myself off and once I get to about half a pill a day I'm just going to deal with the withdrawals til they're no more!
