is being given 320 tramadol
I suppose it depends how many you’re told to take.
I was given 50s after an accident but could take 2 at a time, so 100mg every 4 hours, but sometimes I took more which is supposedly dangerous but I was in stupid amounts of pain at the time.
You shouldn’t take more than 400mg a day, even at 1x 320mg a day I’d be off my face when that kicked in. I was on 2x 50mg Tramadol, 2x 30/500 co-codamol and diclofenic. Add a can of monster and two fags into the mix and I was smelling colours by breakfast.
3 months of that and the withdrawal was horrible though, like flu for weeks.Posted 6 months agolank45Member
Used to take 7/8 a day of the 50s, three at a time in the morning and I was floating around! I was doing this for a while then went cold turkey, it’s horrible. Itchy skin, sweaty, head aches. Unless you’ve severe short term pain I’d not recommend it, long term it’s bloody addictive and the pain killing effects do start to wear off the longer you take them.Posted 6 months agoallthegearSubscriber
Very glad to read she was convicted. She was carrying opioids into the country, not for here own use and without any paperwork.
If she had arrived in the UK under similar circumstances, it would have been a very clear case of possession with intent to supply and the sentencing guidelines would have seen her sentenced pretty much on par with what she got in Egypt.
Tramadol has become a huge problem in Egypt recently.

Mother on law has literally 1000’s. She’s been on an automatic repeat prescription for years and has stopped taking them so they’ve just been stockpiling.
Your MIL needs to get reassessed by her doctor! This sort of thing is costing the NHS a lot of money. Just in my own town it is estimated £1m was wasted this way this year. I realise some doctors don’t get the time to do reassessments but that’s no reason not to do the responsible thing and request one.Posted 6 months agolllnorrislllMember
Ignorance is no excuse, she got the tramadol a controlled drug only available on prescription from a ‘friend’, who had heard about her boyfriends back pain. So she acquired the Tramadol illegally in the UK and then took the tramadol to Egypt, where the medication is outlawed.
With a potential punishment of the death penalty, she got off lightly.Posted 6 months agomogrimMember
Bringing 300 of any tablet into a country would get my spidey sense tingling. More to this story I think.
I really don’t think there is. She was smuggling drugs, and got caught. The only bit I’m not sure about is how much the government has intervened to get her sentence down.Posted 6 months ago
