Better than Vicodin
by sick girl
Citation:   sick girl. "Better than Vicodin: An Experience with Tramadol (exp24069)". Mar 17, 2004.

100 mg oral Pharms - Tramadol


I was hospitalized with an ulcer and was prescribed ultram (tramadol) for pain. I did not want any Vicodin because it makes me very nauseous and Codein wasn't strong enough for my pain. The first time I took it, it hit me after 2hours. The most pleasant sensation covered my whole body, I tryed to describe it to the doctor, who actually saw me moaning with pleasure. Also, it lasts for a looong time, even after going to bed, I wake up in the middle of the night, with waves of pleasure running through my body.

I found out Ultram to be much better than Vicodin in the sense that I get that wonderful 'body high' without being knocked-out or feeling nauseous. I'd really recommend it as an alternative to Codein or Vicodin if you need a strong pain killer (or don't ;-)). I definitely see an addiction potential. After taking everyday for 4 days, the effects aren't as strong. Also, I get headaches the next morning.
Hope this helps!
