This is my report of my experience with this drug.

Firstly, let me say that I have tried all the stimulants Dexedrine, Ritalin, etc. and for sure this drug has the lowest incidence of negative side effects.

The way I would describe this drug is this: Awake, full use of my mental abilities, and discovering many I didn't know I had, ones I thought at the time were dormant - because of my constant lack of quality sleep. My friends and I have used the word “vigilant” to adequately describe the “effect”.

So there were great aspects to this drug. I was able to read, calmly, and the words seemed to just be zooming by and going into my head. Great. Almost as if the pill was doing the reading for me.

However there were some negative things that happened too. I became too 'smart' because when people were talking I had the energy and inclination to 'put them in their place' and was easily picking apart their arguments and lies. It was fun, until they just went quiet. I also found I had the ability to play a lot of mental gymnastics and manipulate the people around me to my discussion points (lead the conversation to something I am knowledgeable in opposed to not, so I could do the talking) This provided much entertainment for me, and my friends who knew I was 'on' it, and mildly entertained the other people milling around. I was not quite as lucid as I was on Hydroxycut, but I don't miss the heart pains from that sludge – although the verbal lucidity was still there, and was noticed.

I had sleep disturbances. Once I fell asleep it was fine, but getting to sleep was the problem. I also had another experience that was unsettling: After about a week on a very measured dose... say 50 mg a day... I became extremely sensitive to emotional ups and downs, mostly downs.. feeling sad for no reason and wanting to curl up and disappear. Even tears once. These usually cleared up after a day or so... of doing nothing.

Overall, I say best upper if I want to be awake without even a hint of sleepyness – long drives especially great! - I had a good time with 2 100mg pills at a time.

Really great for those times when I need an edge. My friend took some for an IQ test and blew it away, but he is generally super smart anyway... he did say it gave him extra energy for moving from question to question.

I will use it in the future for public speaking engagements, first dates, tests, and high level meetings for work and or related activities. When I want to be “on top of everything”

Happy times...

mr. whatever.
