I was prescribed tramadol for
chronic daily tension headaches. I have been on it for
about 3 months, I'm supposed to take 4-6 a day, but I take more like 10-15 and I'm already physically dependent. I have tried to cut down, and I get terrible headaches, cramps, aches, vomiting, unbearable fatigue and depression. I want to stop taking it because it doesn't help my headaches much, and I don't want to need a pill to feel normal.
1. Is it really worth tapering, or am I just prolonging my misery?
