Hi I been suffering back pain and was diagnosed with spondylosis of the spine. about a year ago my doctor gave me tramadol and I was taking 50 mg 2 times a day.My doctor no longer wants me on tramadol so refused my prescription and gave me co codomol which gives me severe heart burn. I have been taking half of a 50 mg tramadol to ease the withdrawal symptoms but still feeling ill and unable to sleep.I feel my doctor should of weaned me off tramadol as its so hard if it wasn't for a few I had left I would be in so much pain .
