    You’re going to need a lot of laxatives for them

    Think we used to get 120 at a time for the dog.

    It sounds like a ridiculous amount. It’s addictive and like all opioids, gets less effective with time.

    320 – does the doc work for team Sky ?

    it’s basically a cure

    Standard dose is 60 or 120mg. I was only on 120 after major bowel surgery.

    Obviously his back was so bad that he couldn’t even carry the tablets himself.

    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.

    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.

    Rather oddly when I was prescribed amitriptyline someone asked my wife if she could buy it from me!

    She was given them by “a friend”, not a GP. 😐

    pharoah hound by any chance?

    wonder if he will wait for her?

    wonder if he will wait for her

    by all accounts he’s got a couple of other ladies on the go.

    She’ll be like a fresh copy of Razzle when she gets out.

    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.

    Could make a killing on the open market.

    And if she had a friend who’d take them to Egypt……….

    Didn’t know they were illegal there

    But yet took hundreds with her, almost as if she knew you couldn’t get them there or something.

    What would our gutter press make of someone coming here from Africa with loads of illegal drugs in their luggage…?

    TBF “difficult to get” and “illegal” are separate issues. It probably wasn’t smart to take them but that doesn’t prove criminal intent.

    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.

    What has criminal intent got to do with it?

    When I broke my shoulder I think I was given about 60 at a time. In fairness it was simple to get more each time but I was never given massive amounts at once (i.e. 300 🙂 )

    What has criminal intent got to do with it?

    Indeed. I don’t know about Egypt but here ignorance of the law is no defence.

    Indeed, but if we start just jailing folk for stupidity this forum will be like a ghost town.

    Well stupidity combined with a criminal activity. The first on its own does limited harm…

    britain we dont jail people for serious crimes …

    Could make a killing on the open market.

    Or you could join the prison service as a staff member, you get paid for that AND make £stacks on ya Trammies!
    No brainer.

    Very telling to see it’s Rachel happy to see her banged up.

    Frankly she’s got off lightly. The whole story is fishy.

    That’s just irresponsible.
    Why doesn’t she cancel her prescription?

    Bringing 300 of any tablet into a country would get my spidey sense tingling. More to this story I think.

    Glad for who ?

    She has done wrong but crikey, I can’t he!p feeling sorry for her. A bit. Three years loss of liberty is bad enough but the conditions she’ll exist in are abhorrent. Why didn’t she get a British boyfriend with a good back.

    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.

    That’s a trick question, right?

    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.

    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.
