    SWIM acquired one 54mg Concerta. In SWIM's past experiences, they have orally imbibed two of such, with another half (cut lengthwise and approximated; SWIM found it difficult to actually cut one in half) imbibed several hours later.

    SWIM liked the effects of such, and realizes fully that one pill will not produce the same effect as last time. However, SWIM's experience with this particular pharm is limited.

    Other topics on this forum have indicated that, for insulfation of said pharm, it is best to remove the grey/dark area, as this leads to negative effects within the nasal cavities. However, given SWIM has only one such pill, they were curious as to the proper dosing.

    Should SWIM insulfate the lighter portions of the pill, and perhaps orally imbibe the dark area, in order to obtain the best results?

    The_Enigma added 2 Minutes and 15 Seconds later...

    Also, SWIM forgot to mention that they have already removed and discarded the outer layer of white, as they did in the first example.

    Concerta 54mg has an outer active layer (brown) and two core active layers (white and beige). The grey layer is the push layer and contains no active at all. The two core layers contain polymers that control the dispersal of the drug through the inert shell. Just thought SWIY would like to know this before snorting or ingesting the grey push layer.

    Perhaps, then, SWIM did not acquire a 54mg Concerta as they were informed, as the outer layer (which SWIM also did not know was active) was white.

    The_Enigma added 32 Minutes and 15 Seconds later...

    SWIM apologizes; it was a 36mg Concerta. SWIM thanks electrolingus for their reply.

    54's are a brownish color on the outside and say alza 54. Swim went thorough HELL trying to snort one of those the first time he got a hold of them. He was used to snorting methylin tablets. But holy shit, those things are a bitch. Just have swiy pop the thing. It's too much work for the short lived outcome. It would probably take longer to prepare one of those for insufflation than the high would last. The pill is extended release anyway and lasts quite a while for swim. Maybe 10 hours or so.

    Swim hates trying to insufflate those damn things. Hard as hell to cut open (he used a razor blade.) Even better yet, the powder becomes gelatinous in the nose. It isn't that great at all. The filler they use is hell. Swim recommends sticking to oral use as well.

    To get 'the most' out of ingesting a concerta, carefully (watch SWIYs fingers cause these fuckers are hard) split them length wise with a razor blade or sharp knife. If desired, the dark grey push layer can be discarded before ingesting. One could also just crush the pill and ingest the pieces. Scraping the brown layer before hand would serve no purpose if one is ingesting the pill because the brown layer contains some of the active and is designed for immediate release.

    take the pill in it's unadulterated form. Provided swiy gets just the active alone, it'll take a good hour to do so, and a shit ton of skill with a razor. Assuming swiy is but a mere mortal, as has been said before, it turns to gel in swiy's nose... It's awful, seriously, think of stringy semen coming out of swiy's nose, DO NOT BOTHER. And crushing it and eating it is just another method swim doesn't advise, the pills taste like salted snot. It really is a miserable pill, pretty determined not to be tampered with.

    If they are the alza 54 SWIM recommends taking it as is, maayybe breaking it in half, he doesn't crush because they taste horrible. If they are the red "M 54" he will take the outer layers off eat those, and crush down the pill as good as he can to inhale, SWIM says they do get clogged up because amount of powder and consistency, but they are not as bad as the alza, and when snorting he says they are really dry and may hit the back of your sinus kind of rough, he thinks the taste isn't bad, but he had said that could be because there clogged up and is hardly a drip. Overall SWIM thinks alza definitely swallow, M54" snort if you really wanna, but powder to effect ratio isn't very good lol
