Tramadol Withdrawal Question...Anxiety is crazy

Posted by ChuckChuckAlong on April 25, 2009, at 17:42:50

I've been taking Tramadol 100mg 2x/day for about a year now due to Fibromyalgia like symptoms. I no longer have the pain and have reduced my dose to just 50mg/day.

I can't believe this would cause crazy anxiety and panic attacks like I've never had. This is day #3 at this dose and I can't think straight and having headaches galore. Every muscle group in my body is also very tight. Is this withdrawal ?

I will take the second dose again tonight and see if this helps, but in the mean time, I've been eating Xanax like candy. I was reading on the half life of this drug and it is about 7 hours or so.

I don't have insurance and can't afford a Dr. right now.

How the heck should I taper this drug ?

Should the morning and pm dose be reduced by the same due to the half life ? Do I need to keep both doses due to the half life ?

I can't believe how chemically my body is dependent on this drug. Please post some advice for me.
