Hi ...me again. I've just been taken off tramadol (yesterday) and put onto targinact , to reduce the constipation problems. I'm having really bad withdrawal problems! H E L P anyone?? The constipation was very real -not helped by having morphine patches as well for 3 weeks- and having had a compacted bowel and been hospitalised last year and not wanting to go there again; I tried to solve the problem for two weeks myself- with 6 mobicol sachets a day AND two sennacots EVERY day for ten days- all to no avail; hence the visit to my GP. Bowels sorted (well emptied!!) but sooo missing the tramadol which I have taken for many many years. How long with these awful withdrawal symptons carry on - anyone any idea?
Two weeks to go til the consultants meeting re my failed ankle fusion (possible amputation?) Will post here when I know what's what.
Thanks for any suggestions here........
