horriblr horrible!

horrible horrible tramadol withdrawal! to explain its like having swine flu! achey ,jittery ,weak as anything ,anxious,tired,restless !.went to docs this morning which took so much effort physically for the doc to up my butran patches to ten mcgs per hour dose.all ive been told is "you have to wait for them to get in your system"so its like a waiting hoping game they will actually work! doc said i may feel like this for up to 5 weeks!noooooo .feel terribly guilty as my partner who suffers ptsd and is disabled after being injured in afghan tries to look after me :( im also in middle of fibro flare this really sucks ,i feel such a burden .so im keeping fingers crossed these patches will help SOON!

  • I now its hard Hun,your just gonna have to ride it out,Iv been on the 5mg for a week an it's still not kicked in yet,iv tried the 10mg but it made me feel sick,doc won't try me on anything else until iv seen the rhumy next month,I'm so sorry to hear about your partner,you mustn't feel guilty,you can't help how you feel and things will get better once your patches kick in,it's just like anything,it takes time,the worse thing is waiting for things to start working,you take care,keep yourself warm and be kind to yourself.

  • I have just been put on sevredol, and told by my doc to stop the tramadol that i have been on for a year, no mention of withdrawals. I have had the night from hell and had to go take some. came on the net to look up withdrawals and noticed your post. What the hell do some of these doctors get paid for because they do not seem to be able to do a basic job. I should have been told to gradually reduces my drugs not just stop. So self medication for me to get off them ! hope you feel better soon xx

  • my doc was the same no advice on withdrawing !the only help and advice i recieved was from kindly enough members here .i feel for anyone trying to stop any kind of opiate ,all ive really done is replaced them with another opiate but i couldnt hack the pain with no medication no way. i hope your not suffering to bad coming of the things and your definetely doing the right thing cutting down slowly and not just cutting out like i did .good luck and look after yourself and do it at your own pace xxx
