    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Hi and Welcome!
    Are you doing this Detox alone???Or do you have a Dr. helping you wtih this???Its really not a god idea to stop tramadol cold turkey,I had some bad stuff happen to me!!But I also had been on Valium or some benzo for a short time!Anyway, I had sezuires so be sure and talk to your Dr. about this!!
    I'm not sure what you mean by the Zips???Beleive it or not Sleepy time te is very Claming and helps a little!Most of all just remember the withdrawel is almost over if you've been at it 5 days!!!!Why did you decide to stop taking it????
    Always ask your Dr. or Pharm. before stopping a medication cold turkey!!!I know fro experience!

    I agree with Grace. I hope you are doing this under the supervision of a doctor.

    The worst is probably over by now.

    Take care, Annette
