I've been on Tramadol (50mg/day) for the last year and a half. The time before this I stopped taking this drug I went through severe withdrawls for a few months and couldn't sleep at all. Body aches, headaches, insomnia...I'm not looking forward to it again.
Two weeks ago I had a microdiscectomy L5/S1 and have been taking hydrocodone 10/325 once per day. I'm off the Tramadol but on the real stuff now. I'm scared to stop taking these cold turkey. Any suggestions?
