I was given 400mg of Tramadol to take for pain relief for fibromyalgia. I was horrified to find that when I cut the dosage down I got withdrawal symptoms. Why didn't my doctor tell me? I am now on 25mg twice a day and had a terrible time going through the withdrawal symptoms. I am on Gabapentin but I don't think it does anything. What else is there that doesn't make feel like a zombie or make become an addict?
