As many of you know, i’ve Been on a combination of 100 mgs of both Tramadol & Pregablin (Lyrica) for a year now. It is been highly effective by totally eliminating my RLS symptoms. My primary care physician wants me to try reducing my Tramadol dosage slowly by taking only 50 mgs for my morning dose for a month, while keeping the other doses the same. So I started the reduction of my Tramadol dosage last week by one tablet each morning. By the afternoon of the second day my RLS came back in both the afternoon & at night. I got little sleep all week.
Some folks on this forum told me that Lyrica works best when combined with Tramadol. Is it possible to reduce my Tramadol dosage and have the Lyrica take over and effectively manage my RLS symptoms?
It took me until almost Christmas last year to get my body acclimated to this combination of Lyrica & Tramadol so that I was finally free of any RLS symptoms. The idea of going through that experience again is very concerning. I’d love to know if any of you have some advice or opinions about this?
