hey there all… for what it is being worth it, I have been given by somebody a few hundreds of m77 of 50 mg pill of tramadol like a week or so ago. so well, I have been thinking about this for a while but then I've taken the decision to stop using my usual and normal meds: the Hab and Top Dol and so I have tried those… I have switched to those ones in order to just try and see if there is going to be at least some difference in the potency between the 2 and if there is some then which is better and either is there a noticeable difference or not.
now, I've gotta mention that since I am usually taking 200 mg of it then it would really look like it would be a completely meaningless and mute experiment I was about to do, however since I do break those 200s and they are becoming IR version (they were ER - extended release version, IR means immediate release version of pills) anyway, I have figured that in quarters it is quite the same as a 200 one. I've been trying to make this experiment as fair as I could. my main indicator has been to be any withdrawal symptoms occurring.
so well, I began my experiment and I should tell you… even after 3 days after the switch over to those things, I am still feeling and since the very beginning I have felt exactly the same as I did using the 200s, have the same relief or slightly less and I am having no withdrawal symptoms. I decided to wait these 3 days in order to be sure that what I am saying is true, that's why did not wanted to say that after only first few dosages taken in a day (plus in all this time, any trace of the previous medication must have already flushed out completely).
and so, now, I just wanted to say that because of this experiment that I've done, I really do think that a foreign brand of tramadol, or at very least those2 that I have compared myself, are equally the same, they are exactly as good of a product as the m77's here as I couldn't feel any difference between the 2. and this is the reason why I am ready to venture any minute to differ in the opinions with those people who said (I've seen their posts all over the internet) that the foreign brands (again, I am only talking about tramadol alone here) are up to 25 % or so weaker. not sure if this applies to other medications (like anti anxiety, anti depression or any other pain killing medication) but I do know that this applies for tramadol as they are not all like that, and I am thinking that maybe none of them are, though I can't be sure here either. what I am sure about is that tramadol top dol and m77 are the same.
remember that this is only my opinion and my thoughts based on what I have experimented and tried it out and the exact reason why I feel that this is true and why I am right is that I really do not think that there are too many people that are actually doing a side by side days long comparison like this one, like the one I've done. if there really are such people who did such kind of comparison like that then please chime in reporting your results.
anyway, I just want to say that in the end result, I have simply switched back to my usual one and I have stashed the m77 to have it handy just in case my usual ones are running out. that way I would know for sure that they would be helpful and I won't be afraid to take them. now, I would just want to make a conclusion and say that if there are many people who do feel the same way as I do then trust me that it would be and it really is a really huge loss of us consumers to the foreign IOPs and the reason is very simple… the price it is just so much more cheap there compared to the prices we have here and I'm now comparing the prices for the exact same thing/ potency/ strength etc. in addition to that, I do know that this has pissed off a lot of people there in their high places and it is a cause of some retaliation such as the current raiding on the foreign buyers that it is going on for a while now. (it has at least 4 -5 months!). one strange thing which I am now wondering about is why no body with tramadol from here has been subjected so far to a raid, a visit? that's pretty strange IMO. plus to this, I am quite sure that if there would be a 'high placed' person who would see this they would try to do their best in order to remove this thread and to shut me up!
the illegal tramadol it is everywhere in here, you could find it nearly everywhere! the thing is that the price for it is a lot much more to purchase it on the street. of course.. everyone wants a profit… but hell… like I have said it a bit earlier… somebody just gave me a few hundreds and he is not having any pain issues…
anyway, my conclusion here: they are exactly as good as those you are going to find here for a much bigger price!
