I've been taking Tridural(Canada, apparently it's the Canadian version of Tramadol) for awhile now(prescribed), usually 100mg or 200mg at a time. Decided to take 400mg at once to see how it would feel. I don't have any opiate or mild opiate experience aside from this pharm.
It was pretty good, it took around 2 hours to kick in and the entire trip probably lasted around 18 hours or so. It started off pretty normal and gradually got more and more intense as time went on.
About 5 hours in, I fell asleep probably for about 6 hours. When I woke up, I was still incredibly high and feeling very very numb all over. I definitely noticed impaired motor skills. Grasping was hard, and things like using my cell phone or playing guitar were near impossible.
I stayed up for about 3 hours and then couldn't stay up due to drowsiness and slept for another 2-3 hours. When I woke up it was a bit more manageable, my motor skills were returning and the numbness was starting to wear off.
Overall I would rate the experience a 7. I definitely enjoyed it. I didn't find the motor skill impairment to be overly alarming or anything to that extent. I simply reminded myself it was due to the chemicals I had consumed and that they would return in the near future. The only downside came a bit later when I had bowel movements that I would compare to having had taken laxatives.
