I use tramadol every once in awhile. Usually 50 to 100 mg. It's a lovely experience.
For me, it takes 1 to 2 hours to come on. Then I get a little dizzy and a nice, pleasant feeling comes over me. It is psychological and somatic, like nestling into a big down comforter on a summer day.
Sometimes I don't even know that the good things I'm feeling are a result of a drug, because it takes so long to come on that I've forgotten I took it. But then when I stand up I remember, because I'm a little dizzy.
After a couple of hours I get a bit of a gentle rush that lasts for several more hours. I wouldn't say it 'kills' pain, but things are just more pleasant and warm and comfortable. Whatever pain I'm feeling doesn't matter quite so much.
And if I'm with others, I get talkative and relaxed and open. It allows me to connect better.
Sex is very enjoyable on tramadol, but I find orgasms almost impossible to achieve.
The tramadol lasts a good 8-12 hours for me, slowly peaking at about 4-5 hours then slowly coming down thereafter. Sometimes I get sleepy and fall asleep. Sometimes I can just lie on the couch and relax with my eyes closed and think of things.
I've had no habituation with tramadol, other than the fact that I enjoy the experience. I use it once every couple of weeks or when I have a day off and want a mini-vacation.
One severe side effect for me is that my nose itches like crazy when I'm on it! It's a small price to pay though. Also I frequently get a little bit constipated the next day. And usually about 2 days after my dose I get a little sad, a little depressed. Nothing serious, I just remind myself that I used a lot of 'happy' on my trip and now I have to pay it back with some 'sad.' It passes.
Overall one of my favorite drugs. I'm really glad this is available because I use it wisely and it helps my life.
