    Someone I know has some adderall xr 20mg (capsules w/ beads)..
    My friend wants to know whether or not adderall can be vaporized in a factory made vaporizer used for MJ (not a lightbulb)? And if so how effective/bioavailable will it be compared to other methods of ingestion (oral, insufflated, etc..)?

    heRbaLhEaLeR19 added 1396 Minutes and 36 Seconds later...

    If Meth, which is an amphetamine, can be smoked/vaped wouldn't the same theory apply to just regular amphetamines?

    Has nobody out there ever tried crushing the beads and smoking/vaping adderall?
    C'mon, there has got to be sum1 out there who has been curious enough to try this lol.

    well swim has done this with addies , dexedrine , even diet pills like tenuate (other brand) gel caps and xr versions , yeah i know those contain diethylcat. but some ppl just wanna get the rush out of anything and of course shooting pills is not particulary a good ideea :)
    the thing is you have to crush the beads till' you turn 'em to dust and that's not only pretty time consuming , if you're not a tidy person some of your precious "stuff" will end up on the table , clothes , rug , etc.
    then basically just vaporise the dust. i'd rather just chew the beads but vaporising addie dust worked for my cat pretty good. the problem is that after you vaporise it you'll end up with a lot of burned "pill matter" with will probably still contain some amp crystals.
    if you insist to smoke it , then use a bigger dose as you cant really vaporise all the containing amphetamines.
    or you could just try to do a little acetone wash and extract the amp. salts. swim never did that on addies and there is a possibility that some pill igredients will not be soluble in acetone.

    There is still a lot of fillers and binders in the pills that are not good for you. It is probably not good for your lungs at all, not to mention, SWIM thinks the taste of Adderall and Dexedrine is disgusting. He describes a chemically sweet taste that makes him gag. He could not imagine the way the smoke would taste.

    Meth is usually available as a hydrochloride salt which burns at a much higher temperature than its vaporisation point, making it suitable for 'smoking' (i.e. vaping). Dunno what kind of salt the amphetamine in Adderall tablets. Edit: wiki page says suphates, aspartates and saccharates. No idea how they'd vaporise.

    then swim smoked burned addies. and swim being high usually on ethylcat when not on meth ... here you cant get addies or any legal amphetamine , strongest drug for add/narco is concerta xl 54mg. swim means he only tryed stuff like that 2-3 times with addies or dexedrine , he always got a strange headache and always ethylcat seemd to go away :p

    Pharmaceuticals such as Adderall are prepared in pill form because they are intended for oral administration.

    Thus, in straying from the optimal route of administration for which the drug was prepared, SWIY may be exposing himself to adverse side-effects that would not have emerged from oral administration. Not only this, but depending on the pill, a different route of administration may prove less efficacious.

    In smoking adderall,which comprises pill binders and orally inert fillers, SWIY may be exposing himself to substances that otherwise would not be active and could potentially produce aversive effects.

    The fact that methamphetamine vaporization is an effective and efficient route of absorption cannot necessarily be extrapolated to extended release adderall, as the constitutions of these drugs are not the same, and extended release adderall is not pure amphetamine salts.

    In general, shooting pills is less toxic than smoking them.

    Although is evaporates fast, acetone tends to be a catch-all type of solvent. I would reccomend something more selective.

    My tried this afew times, he said the high is quite a bit different from a normal speed buzz. He thinks maybe do to different ammonts of the active chemicals that are released into the vapor. Since adderall contains 4 different chemicals ( dextroamphetamine sulphate, dextroamphetamine saccharate, levoamphetamine asparate and sulfate). He said it felt very simmiler to an opioid type high.

    Adderall is not available in my country (Iceland).
    However we have a lot of street amphetamines, most commonly paste, and sulphate powder.

    I've tried vaporizing about 200mg of some sulphate, by putting it on some aluminium foil and lighting below, so that no direct fire reaches the amphetamine. I inhaled by putting a straw in my mouth and holding it ~5cm above the speed and inhaling once i saw 'vape'.
    It tasted awfully and the 'vape' was very rough.

    I felt a rush that lasted for a few seconds, i suspect it was caused by a lack of oxygen reaching my brain. After these 3-5 seconds i felt no effects what so ever. About 30 minutes later i ingested some orally and snorted some, and the effects were obvious, like always.

    I had not used any stimulants that day, so i would clearly felt the effects if there were any.

    My conclusion is that sadly, I don't think it's possible :(
    Don't you think everybody would be doing it and talking about it if it was?

    Crystal methamphetamine, just like Desoxyn is methamphetamine HCL. Crystal meth vapes a lot smoother because it is a hydrochloric salt, unlike the stimulant in Adderall. 50% of the salts in Adderall are sulfates (SO4). Sulfates require a lot more heat in order to vaporize. On top of that, Adderall has many, many fillers and a lot of binders. Just think about it, 4 different stimulents all most likely with different binders, and if the Adderall is Adderall XR (in a spansule) just think about all the work that goes into those little balls to make the mechanism work accurately. YUCKK. I would not recommend vaporizing most if not any prescription medications, but I would definitely not advise anyone to vaporize Adderall.

    Though I am guilty for trying new ROAs for prescription medications, I typically come down just to taking the pill orally. It's a better high and better for you :D
