Sunnydaysoon, Welcome to SR

I am on day 31 from quitting Tramadol at 1000mg a day. I promise you it gets better! You are not only having withdrawal from an opioid at this point, but also an SSRI withdrawal syndrome. That's why you're feeling so much anxiety. I would definitely try finding another DR! You could even try a psych DR. Alot of psych Dr's have knowledge of Tramadol that regular MD's don't bc it was originally made to be an antidepressant, and then later was found to be so useful for pain that that's what it's primary use is today. Or if you don't want to go that route and you just wait it out, know that the anxiety is most likely coming from that, and it will eventually go away Hang in there!! Post as much as you need to, this is a great place to get support!
