Red face Endone Withdrawals

Hello Everyone It has been many year since I have been here. Anyway I will try to cut a long story short. I am a Chronic Pain Patient.
My Primary Doc sent me to a pain management specialist a few months ago. We did not hit it off. I left his office with a script of 10mg Methadone B.d. which I have refused to take. A second opinion was arranged- last week when I attened the appt. I was taking 5mg Endone q.i.d. This pain management specialist thought he would cease all Endone ( not taper) but then start me on Tramadol 100mg B.d. and 50mg break through pain. Tramadol is not recognized as a narcotic in Australia. I was told I would withdraw from Endone anyhow- it is the 5th day. I am not taking the Tramadol as yet- I have an extremely sensitve system and suffered a bad SSRI re-action in the past (I informed PM specialist of this). SO now I am Cold-Turkey withdrawing../I live alone any recommedations/thoughts appreciated, thankyou.
Patty
PS- lots more to this story just trying to keep things short..

Re: Endone Withdrawals

Hi Oatty! Welcome back.
I thought I'd check in and see how you were doing. Ultram I think has a weird feeling in the States too. Some docs say it's not addictive and yet, so many get addicted.
Hey when you said you had am SSRI issue, a serious one, do you mean Seratonin Syndrome ( don't answer if u don't want). But if that's true, you are right to always tell doctors who give you meds.
What is Endone? I haven't heard of it. Did you go onto the Ultram/ Tramadol? Is it helping you?
All the best,
Wendy
