I procured a bit of powdered tramadol the other day and my wife and I both took 150mg orally, mixed in with a small amount of water. Effects were noticeable after about about 20 minutes with a gradual increase in intensity over the next hour or so. I found the high to be very similar to weak opiates - codiene and propoxyphene mainly - but I soon discovered some unfortunate differences.
First off, my wife experienced nausea throughout the entire experience whenever she stood up for more than a few seconds at time. She enjoyed herself well enough despite this, however, and I never had any problems with nausea while intoxicated.
The first problem I became aware of was a problem urinating. The first time I tried after taking the substance it was fairly difficult and took several minutes. By halfway through the experience it had become completely impossible to urinate

, despite a painfully increasing urge to do so. After several hours of fairly decent sleep I was awoken by the pain in my bladder. I was still unable to urinate and was quickly overcome by a severe bout of nausea and vomiting which lasted for a good eight hours. Finally, more than 24 hours after taking this stuff, I was able to urinate - with difficulty. It was another 24 hours before the constipation went away. Imagine feeling like you need to run to the toilet because you have to go so bad, but when you get there you can't go and the urge doesn't pass. This is what tramadol did to me.
The high is mediocre and the price paid was not worth it.
