... 20+ 50mg. pills daily. Is that too much to detox on my own?
Taking 20+ Tramadol's is some what abusive however you should not worry about dying from withdrawl. You should let your doctor know your having a problem with your medication intake. And let him or her know you would like to get the problem under control. I'm sure the doctor would respect your honesty about the situation and help you with a tapering down plan.. It can be easy to let yourself get to the point of over doing your dosage as time goes on.
That would be your best bet. Just be honest with the doctor and i'm sure you will be ok ! (wish you the best)
You really need to address this problem as taking that much tramadol can cause adverse reactions such as seizures. Best to get help with a taper plan and get this problem under control. I would not try going cold turkey from this quantity without medical supervision. Here to be supportive and encouraging, please get some help.
What you SHOULD fear is what could happen it you don't stop your addiction. I can understand your fear but it can be done. People are detoxing from all sorts of drugs using large amounts and using long term. You can do it too. Just get the right professional help and taper off of them. Keep coming to this site for moral support and encouragement. Take Care,
I'm in the same boat as you. I'm on day 3 of tramadol detox after taking 20-25 pills a day. It's a horrible feeling and you do have a hard road ahead of you. This is my 3rd time trying to get off this evil drug. I've been taking it off and on for 7 years. My symptoms have been cold sweats, nausea, diarrhea, brain and arm tingles, restless and painful legs, insomnia, and anxiety. I'm so sorry you've gotten to this point, but YOU CAN DO IT!!! Let me know if you have any questions about it ok. Good luck!!!
