My friend's sister loves Adderall
but understands they definitely have different effects on her. Strangely enough, she finds the Adderall more powerful in the effects she desires, such as euphoria
. She does not feel euphoric on meth
, but without a doubt feels very good on Adderall. She used to feel this euphoria on meth but thinks maybe the more "pure" meth does not give this effect - she says her meth now is more pure because it comes in the form of crystal shards, while it was just white powder before. Also, she has significant motor tics on Adderall, like teeth grinding and muscle twitching, which she no longer has on meth.
Even with the noticeable changes in psychomotor behavior and positive mood effects, my friend's sister would like to note that she actually gets a lot more accomplished on methamphetamine. It lasts considerably longer and she effortlessly will be on her feet for 16 hours without even being conscious of it. The Adderall does not give her this unusual ability of being active - instead, the Adderall lets her concentrate on sedentary tasks for long periods of time, such as studying.
The Adderall my friend's sister would take for these amazing feats would be 25 mg XR. The most she has ever taken in a day is 3 capsules, which had her flying for a good 16 hours. On the other hand, she will have 4 "bumps" of methamphetamine and be "flying" for more than a day... literally unable to sleep no matter what. My friend's sister thinks it is strange that she does not get a "rush" from the methamphetamine (it is a constant 'high' that lets you do things without being aware that you couldn't do them without the drug
) ..yet definitely notices rushes with Adderall, or "peaks" even - one every 6 hours or so - even though the Adderall is swallowed in capsule form while the meth is snorted.
Because of all this, my friend's sister would be much more likely to take meth before going to work or school, while she would be far more cautious of taking Adderall in these situations, since the Adderall makes her feel "obvious"ly high. Again, this only applies to Adderall XR - my friend's sister thinks Adderall IR is total crap in comparison.
