Tramadol is a prescription medication that can treat moderate-to-severe pain, including chronic pain and pain following an injury or surgery.
Because it can make you feel relaxed and euphoric, tramadol has high abuse potential. Drug abuse occurs when you use a drug in a manner not prescribed by a clinician.
Most people who abuse tramadol get it from the black market or off the street.
Tramadol Street Value
Tramadol is available in 50 milligram and 100 milligram pills. In general, a single 50mg pill costs about $1 on the street, while a 100mg pill costs about $5.
Street prices can vary depending on location and supply. In places with a high supply of tramadol, the drug may cost less. In places with a low supply of tramadol, the drug may cost more. In many cases, supply is higher in cities and lower in rural areas.
