Hi all I’m a newbie on here and just joined.

I am a C4 Quadriplegic and have been a quad since 1988, so 32 years post injury.  I have no movement from the neck down and live in North/West suburbs of Melbourne.

I am so concerned as I just received a phone call from my GP stating that he can no longer prescribe Tramal for me and I have been using Tramal 150mg SR twice daily (300mg daily) for 16 years.

If I miss taking just 1 tablet, it effects my mind and I cannot think rationally, its hard to describe the feeling in text.

I also have violent muscle spasms and Profuse sweating, even in bed I spasm violently and sweat profusely if I miss a dose, so there is no way I would be able to sit in my wheelchair without them.

I have no idea what I can do and im all out in 10 days and it’s not a drug that you can stop all of a sudden.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Regards Dean
