I have had two years experience with recreational use of this drug in daily use. I have used it alone and occasionally used with alcohol.
The high: not as strong as Hydrocodone, it has a very pleasant, slow to act effect.
1. The first time I tried it I vomited within 45 minutes of ingesting.
2. I have taken 300mg at 6pm, and still felt somewhat high the next day when I wake up at 8am.
The high: mostly opiate feel with some speedy sensation. I never felt like nodding off. This is something I have taken at work all day. It is a mood enhancer. I have never had anyone notice I am high.
1. Urination: At first, I had a problem urinating. I had to concentrate and it feels constricted. It took me 5 minutes standing there to get a stream going. It was a problem for me the 1st 3 months. My body got used to it because now it is no problem.
2. Itching: at the 200-300mg level I have experienced some itching. It can be bothersome. I don't consider it to be too much of a problem, but others may notice you are doing it. Be aware.
3. Sleeping: I have had trouble sleeping at the higher levels. I feel very good, calm, buzzing. However I have had many nights awake thinking the whole night. It feels good, but too many of those nights have left me exhausted later on.
4. Maintenance: If I am without for a period of time after long term use, (and I mean a week) I felt agitated, and restless without it.
5. Mixing. I have taken this with alcohol. I am very tolerant to both alcohol and tramadol, but I would not drink more than 2-3 drinks while taking tramadol.
6. Overall: I have used daily for 2 years now. It is a solid, workman like high. I can dictate how high I want to get, from a good buz at work to very high on the weekends with careful monitoring.
