Bad Withdrawal

250 mg oral Pharms - Tramadol (daily)


I took 5 tramadol (250mg) at once every day for about 3-4 weeks. It felt great. Opiate-like sense of well-being but a little speedy too. I was very productive during this period - got a lot of work done. I was just happy to be doing whatever I was doing even if it was a task that would normally seem tedious or boring. No problem urinating as some have reported. The fun stopped when I ran out of pills.

About 24-36 hours after my last dose, I started to feel fatigued. Between 36 and 48 hours, insomnia and severe anxiety (I'm talking panic attack stuff) set in. The anxiety and fatigue lasted for about 3 or 4 days. The insomnia lingered longer gradually dissipated over a 2-3 week period. I'm fine now. It would probably have helped if I had tapered off the drug - but, like I said, I ran out (and it's a prescription drug where I live).
