I have a prescription for Ultram (50mg Tramadol) and have been taking it for about 5 months now. Originally it was for chest pains. I have a heart problem and randomly have these sharp stabbing pains in my chest where I canít breathe and they last anywhere from a few minutes to over a month sometimes. My doctor canít figure out what it is so she and the doctor from the emergency room have given me Ultram. Over the past few months I have found it is useful for other things than chest pain. I take as many as four 50mg pills at a time, no more as I am nervous of having a seizure. I take it at the gym, when I need a pick me up, to curb the appetite for weight loss, or at work when it starts to get really busy. It wakes me up, gives me energy, and I can go for hours on it without stopping. Also it does nicely with a few hits from a joint. Also it is much cheaper for me than my preferred other opiates.

Also I occasionally get my hands on some Concerta (Methylphenidate, aka Ritalin) for when I need the extra concentration for an all-nighter to play catch up on my work that I tend to slack on. Recently I tried mixing the two.

I took one 36mg Concerta (as thatís all I had left) and two 50mg Tramadol at about 11pm within 20 minutes I could feel them starting to work (kinda like the pre-roll feeling), by midnight I felt great and was typing away on my paper. The Concerta had me sharp and focused and the Tramadol took care of the tiredness and aches and pains. About 2:30 am I took another 50mg Tramadol to ensure that it would be working before the others started to wear off. Another was taken about 5am. I was still going strong but it was to ensure it didnít wear off. I was still going by the time the sun rose. About 9 am I can still somewhat feel it, I take a Goody powder and Iím set (I love the quick caffeine kick). The night went very well.
