Swim has been using Tramadol for almost 2 years now off and on, and over this time has tried several different types of Tramadol including generic capsules, sustained release pills, effervescent tablets and just recently Zamadol melt tablets.
It is about the Zamadol melts swim is posting as he wanted to share his experience of these and offer a comparison to the other types.
Firstly, despite the name, Zamadol is exactly the same compound (Tramadol Hydrochloride) as all the other types. The only difference is how it's packaged.
The Zamadol melts are similar to the effervescent tablets, in that they are larger tablets which will dissolve in water. Zamadol tablets however can be dissolved in the mouth and dissolve rapidly on the tongue. They have a mild minty flavour and artificial sweetener which masks the slight bitterness.
Swim found the effect to be slighter better than the capsules and pills, but below that of effervescent tablets. For swim, the effervescent tablets (Actavis brand) are noticeably more potent and give a more pronounced euphoria. Unfortunately, swim is unable to obtain these anymore.
Finally on closing, just a funny tale about how swim came by the Zamadol. Swim is unable to obtain it on prescription so ordered from an overseas online pharmacy in Europe and received the Zamadol a few days later and was surprised to see that they had been dispensed by a pharmacy in swim's own country as indicated by the pharmacy label affixed to the box (which had swim's name on it). So basically the Zamadol had done a round-trip and come back home.
