I have been dealing with GAD for many years, as many of my family members... I am wondering if Tramadol might help with the horrible symptoms of an anxiety attack?? Any advise would be so appreciated!
I have GAD and have tried varies drugs that haven't really worked. I started taking codeine for Restless Legs but I had a reaction to it. I was prescribed tramadol as a replacement and find within a few days that my GAD has also reduced. I have how managed to stop taking the other 4 drug prescribed to me and still found that my GAD has reduced and my RLS had also completely subsided. I now take two tramdols at night but sometimes miss the morning dose. On the following day I have noticed that my GAD starts to return however if I start taking the morning dose again my anxiety almost completely goes. I have been taking sleeping tablets for about 5 year to ensure I sleep. I stopped taking them 4 weeks ago, although I find the first 2 weeks hard to sleep right through the night, I now feel more refreshed in the morning. I have not taken any other dose than the evening dose for the last week and found the my GAD has again started to increase. I will again be taking the tramadol in the morning from tomorrow. How are you getting on?
