Aight guys. I had a problem. He is pretty new to pills, been experimenting with them for a month or so. I have tried xanax up to 5mg, valium 15mg, ambien 10mg and the newest one adderall xr. He has a constant source for them. Doesnt have ADD or ADHD, just doing them for recreation. THC free for over a month (used 2 years straight), drinks on occasion, is perscribed to Paxil (paroxetine)for social anxiety at 37.5 mg per day but starting today is back down to 25mg. He hates paxil for its many drug interations, but doesnt see adderall as one to be weary of. Acid doesnt work for him now that hes on Paxil, unfortunate since it was his favorite drug up until a few months ago when he started paxil. He cant do DXM or tramadol due to ssri properties. He feels like a lot of drugs cannot be used now due to paxil. Although it sucks since drugs are a big part of his life, paxil has worked great for him, so continue he must. Anyways, on to the point. He has tried numerous times in numerous ways to get something from adderall. Since it is XR, the beads have been broken up into a fine powder and snorted, crushed and put in a small shot of water, ate the beads and crushed with teeth, and just taken the pill as normal. He has done from 10 to 70mg and cant get a decent high at all, in fact he barely notices any effects. If anything it is hard to get to sleep, maybe more concentration, but nothing too much beyond baseline. What gives? Is it possible for someone to not be able to be affected by adderall? perhaps ritalin is a better choice? Very confusing and kind of upsetting. He got a bunch for college coming up but thought they would work better than they did. Upping the dose doesnt seem like a great idea, but he has no idea on what a safe dosage is. Any help or comments are much appreciated.
