Harry L Haroutunian, MD responded:
Tramadol is an opiate, and although you don't say how long you've been using it, long-term exposure can make you physically dependent.

If you feel you're experiencing withdrawal, your doctor can issue some mild medications to help you through this period.

Tramadol binds to the opiate receptors in the brain and acts like an opiate but does not have the central nervous system depressant effects that a typically classed opiate does. In large doses tramadol can cause seizures. As an addiction specialist working for a rapid detox center in california Ive seen this alot. Speak to your MD. Get some options for yourself. Its definitely a doable thing
