DOSE:
900 mg oral Pharms - Gabapentin (daily)

BODY WEIGHT: 80 kg


I have been an addict to tramadol for almost 5 years inconsistently. I tried to stop for as long as I can remember, but every time I tried the withdrawals kicked in and the gates of hell opened loose. Believe it or not I am a clinical pharmacist, so through my studies I noticed gabapentin as an epileptic adjuvant with a yet to be understood mechanism of action.

As a curious person I searched online for it and what I noticed was a revelation, the thing helps with tramadol withdrawal. I gave it a try and here I am after 5 years of tramadol addiction, a healthy young man that can be social focused and able to continue my work.
Gabapentin I thank you.
