    Once a person develops a dependence to tramadol, quitting the drug will cause unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. Even using tramadol as prescribed can lead to dependence and withdrawal.

    Withdrawal is the result of the body becoming chemically addicted, or altered, from taking tramadol on a continuous basis—even after only a few weeks. This happens because users develop a tolerance to tramadol, meaning they must take more frequent and larger doses to feel the drug’s effects. In response, the brain adapts to the constant presence of the drug and adjusts chemically.

    I always believed that taking pain killers are not the solution. That’s why I tend to avoid taking one, except if I really can’t bear the pain. These tips you mentioned indeed will help.

    The only drug I took which I would knew would be addictive is dilaudid. And I knew when I was offered a prescription of it, it would be bad for me. So thankfully I only ever had it in the hospital and I never had to worry about weaning myself off of it. I am sure this is hard. I would hate to be in that spot myself.
