DOSE:
20 mg oral Pharms - Methylphenidate (pill / tablet)

BODY WEIGHT: 135 lb


Ritalin. Where to begin.

I was told ADD (Attention deficit disorder) medication was easy to get a prescription for. So I tried my luck and 20 minutes later I had a bottle full of Ritalin 10mg pills.

What does it do? It certainly enhances my concentration. It works as described. Little to no euphoria. Enhanced social capabilities (the coolest effect). Higher mind clarity, I think faster, I work faster, etc.

The bad sides:

it messes with my sleep patterns. Before taking Ritalin, when I went to bed, I'd fall asleep within 10 minutes. Now I have to wait several minutes/hours.

I always feel like there's something big coming. It's very hard to explain. it's like being anxious, waiting for something that's not coming.

unable to relax...

it makes my heart race a bit. kind of uncomfortable.

The biggest dose I've had was 30mg with weed. I was a speedball :p
