I tapered down then tapered over to the hydros, which I used for about two weeks after quitting the Tramadol, to buffer the worst of the chills/sweats
/restless legs and insomnia. Quitting, though it took a full month to really get through, really wasn't bad at any one given point in time. The worst was the insomnia. But Tramadol does not cause the same experience with use or withdrawal in all people, it is my understanding, as it is the metabolites of the drug that create its effects.
