    It doesn't affect me. I've had a prescription for 5 years now so the
    effects are non existant when I take them orally like I'm supposed to.
    If I snort them then I get a little rush, nothing like what other
    people describe though.

    from U.S.A.
    I take desoxyn.....7.5-10mg in the mornin and bout 10mg more thru out
    the day( 5mg at noon and 5mg at 4pm) I dont ntice much. Focus, I
    actually follow thru with things, and I sometimes get a small
    antidepresent effect.
    ActualIy my wife notices when I take it more then I do. I normally take a
    day or 2 off every couple weeks....and she alwas knows....because I will
    start like 10 projects, and run around the house in a panic trying to get
    something done.......but keep starting other things, I also start misplacing
    everything I can get my hands on ...SHe just smiles and says" soooo,
    didnt take your meds today did you........."

    yay


    also never need to drink coffee.
    I dont take enought to get tweeked , butI am sure I could if I wanted to
    take a bunch

    I take 5 mg once a day. Since I am a 90 pound female that is enough for an effect. I get a very calm feeling and very focused, like there is nothing between her and what she is focusing on. Things seem to be very still. She would not describe it as high, just blissfully calm, the way she imagines things should be. It is the opposite of the rushed-up feeling she gets when not taking it. She is easily frustrated, angered, and feels like she has no time to do anything because she is trying to do everything at once. Swim's mind will throw thoughts out at the speed of light so that she forget one while another is coming through. This can be very frustrating. Adderall slows this down where swim can actually be able to know what she is thinking.
