Tramadol Hydrochloride Withdrawal

If you abruptly stop taking tramadol hydrochloride (Ultram®), withdrawal symptoms may occur. These symptoms can occur with chronic, legitimate use of the drug, as well as with tramadol abuse. Withdrawal is a normal, predictable, physical response to stopping medications like tramadol; it is not necessarily a sign of abuse (although it certainly is more likely to occur in cases of addiction).
Symptoms of a withdrawal from tramadol hydrochloride may vary in intensity and can include:
  • Sweating
  • Insomnia
  • Diarrhea
  • Hallucinations
  • Panic attacks
  • Unusual, unexplained sensations, such as tingling, burning, or "pins and needles" feelings.
If you are considering stopping tramadol, make sure to first talk to your healthcare provider. He or she will slowly decrease your dose at a rate that helps minimize withdrawal symptoms.
