The Similarity
Tramadol

DOSE:
100 mg oral Pharms - Tramadol (pill / tablet)
    oral Hydrocodone (daily)
    oral Pharms - Oxycodone (daily)

BODY WEIGHT: 135 lb


I have been using analgesics for over a year now and have mainly used Oxycodone/Hydrocodone for euphoric purposes (7.5 to 10 mgs 3x a day). I do not have any real pains except those that come with the stress of life. I am a firm believer that anything that causes positive change in one's life is an 'anti-depressant' and these drugs do exactly that for me.

I have seen many people compare Hydrocodone to Tramadol but I have found that Tramadol is more similiar to Oxycodone. I would compare 100mgs of Tramadol to about 5-6mgs of Oxycodone, with the euphoric, well-being feelings not as intense (This doesn't mean 200mgs of tramadol would equal 10mgs of Oxycodone...the drug doesn’t work like that).

Tramadol takes much longer to kick in (up to 3 hours for first time users) but lasts much longer than my average pain killer (I have felt the effects up to 18 hours later). I have found that taking 50mgs every 4 hours will keep me feeling great at all times.
