    My friend, Jesus, just bought 5 54mg concerta off of Satan for $XXXXXX because the deal sounded too good to pass up because in heaven, all AD(H)D pills run at about $XXXXXX per 10mg. Anyways, Jesus' friend Allah told him that you're supposed to suck on them to get rid of the time release. Jesus was just wondering if there any better methods than doing that or if the information he received was false.

    Funny, I was talking to Satan the other day about this. He said that for the XRs, he takes a knife or razor blade and lightly cuts all the outer shell off, leaving the thicker inner shell intact. This outer shell has almost a third of the Methylphenidate, and Satan sets it aside. Once it's all been cleared off, Satan cuts into the thicker shell and takes out the insides. He says the pink and white bits are where the good stuff is, and that the brown part just expands when exposed to water. Apparently, it helps to push the other stuff out of the capsule when it's in the stomach, and will just turn his nose into a sticky mess if he tries to snort it.

    Anyways, once Satan has cut the brown part away from the pink/white part, he throws it away and crushes the pink/white part up. He usually snorts this and puts the outer shell under his tongue for absorption into his sublingual (under the tongue) or buccal (bottom of the cheek, against the outside of the gums) mucous membranes. He says this works almost as fast as snorting, and it's as if he had put the entire thing up his nose without hurting himself putting the sharp, weird shell bits up there.

    You should really tell your buddy Jesus to hang around and talk a little longer to his friends.

    Ah, so will Jesus be getting more for his money if he decided to cut them up and rail them? How is it comparable to railing Adderall? Does it hurt more, less? Better rush? Smaller?

    Jesus would definitely get more for his money opting for insufflation.

    In Satan's opinion, it's a much better rush. He prefers it to both Adderall and Dexedrine. He says it's a more euphoric rush with better focus and more self-control. Satan, being an immortal, does not feel pain, but says that his human friends claim it doesn't really hurt at all, and that it feels the same as railing Adderall.

    My friend Buddha saw Shiva the Destroyer picking her nose one day. She said she'd been prescribed Concerta and, being the badass she is, decided to abuse them. She basically did what Satan had done, slicing off the outer coating and popping that under her tongue. She sliced off and discarded the second layer, then cut off the nasty brown part.

    She found the good stuff too hard to crush... so, she grabbed her mortar and pestle, dropped the goods inside, and went to work. Shiva told Buddha this was a hell of lot easier to grind up and snort. Apparently there were still some bits that were too gummy to grind. Buddha supposed that was why she was picking her nose.

    DorkDastardly added 1 Minutes and 54 Seconds later...

    Oh, and Shiva said she tossed the brown half in a cup of water. A few days later it turned into a big, gooey blob.

    My fish doesn't see how one could effectively prepare the methylphenidate in Concerta for intranasal administration, as the consistency of the vehicle containing active drug is so sticky. He's never even attempted to manipulate the gummy mess into a suitable state for snorting. Optimal absorption through the nasal mucosa requires very small particles, which isn't a problem in the case of simple immediate-release tablets since they are easily crushed into a powder. With Concerta, oral administration is the way to go. Any chunks that aren't a fine powder either get trapped in the nose or drips down the nasal passages back into the throat and down the esophagus.

    My fish has always had success with oral administration. There is a simple manipulation that bypasses the extended release mechanism at least partially. He bites the tablet in half. Each Concerta tablet consists of a membrane that allows water to pass through it; this membrane contains a portion of the methylphenidate at one end and some sort of hydrophilic compound at the other. The process of osmosis allows water to pass through the membrane, where it is absorbed by the hydroliphic compound which causes it to expand. This expansion pushes the methylphenidate out of the casing through a hole drilled through the end. The membrane encasement isn't digested by the body and passes in tact. There's a shell that surrounds the membrane which provides the color and imprint of the tablet as well as the other portion of methylphenidate. This provides an immediate dose of the medication as a sort of "loading dose". By biting the tablet in half the membrane seperates and exposes the active drug. The rate of absorption is acceptable and are comparable (at different doses) to the rush of snorting Ritalin.

    Knowing someone who has been on Concerta for Many years and knowing that this person who has been on them all, VyVanse, Adderall XR, Daytrana etc has attempted all methods of abusing them from Iv to intranasal this persons best opinion is just to suck off the coating, and swallow the whole thing with large cup of hot coffee. It'll hit you fast enough and last long enough.

    Mohammed found that sucking off the coating works the best for him personally. He told me it worked better if he chewed it up though. He found trying to crush it up was too much work and not really worth it in the end when he could have just popped it and chewed it up.
