    Whats with these? I hear that they are time released ritalin. To get the same effects from a normal dose of ritalin, do people just chew a concerta, or perhaps parachutte it?

    Yeah you can do that to get the effects faster. Concerta is a time
    released ritalin, it lasts up to 12 hours and I find it to be
    really hard to sleep after taking these cause they last so long and the
    crash is a bit slower, but not as intense with usual amphetamines. If
    you are looking for a bit more energy or need to stay up later concerta
    is perfect for it, SWIM works a night labor job and concerta is a good
    friend of his for this.

    Good luck chewing a concerta, it takes a hammer to crush the
    bastards. They are time released ritalin, used to have
    them. They gave me an upset stomach though, so i got switched to
    adderall :).

    Chewin a couple of them definately doesn't increase the fun effects, just gives a bad crash later on. These things suck. Adderal is way better.

    Yeah, chewing them is a tough thing, even when using a mortar and a
    pestol it still requires a bit of arm strength...they must make these
    to survive a nuclear blast.

    it's simple, use a razor blade to remove the outer coating, then there
    will be a thin wax-like coating under that, which should also be
    removed, the there will be 3 laters, the top is the nozle, middle is
    drug (methylphenidate) end part is the spunge I believe, cut off,
    nozzle and spunge and you will be left with methylphenidate perhaps a
    couple other additives but it really gets out a lot of the junk...



    good luck

    SWIM chewed 2 36 milligram concertas and it gave a somewhat pleasent buzz for about 2-3 hours, then a terrible crash. This stuff sucks! It's better for an extended gental energy boost.

    I used to get so pissed with these i would put them in a few ziplocks
    and pounded the hell out of them with a damn hammer. They arent
    worth it in my opinion.

    SWIM loves concerta. He is on it right now in fact, for his third time. He doesn't find the crash to be so bad. He always swallows either 54 or 108 mg so far, never snorted concerta but he has snorted adderall.

    i used to be on "Concerta" 54 mg's of it, but last week i got switched to "Adderall" for my ADHD, i've blown concerta many many times, for people who dont know a good way of breaking it up,here is what i did,


    1) wash off the outer coating of the pill until it comes off, leaving you w/ a waxy layer


    2) find a metal pasta strainer or cheese grater an break that biatch up


    the thing w/ concerta is that the crash is BAD... with two B's, an another thing i found is that most of that doesnt even make it up your nose, its by-far the stickiest substance i have ever put up my nose and in my opinion is a waste of the medication,also because it wears off so fast

    today was my first day getting concerta, i recently got a
    perscription... all i did was chew on the outer layer till it could
    peel off. once i got it off, i bit the tip off of one of the ends and
    scraped the brown shit out. then i did the same to the other side. I
    was left with the main shit and i just used a safety pin to scrape it
    all onto a surface. then i cut it up and blew it. but i must say they
    were A LOT more difficult to break than i expected.

    when you scrape off the layer of color on the pills make sure to save
    it, the outer layer contains about a third or so of the dose, probably
    less actually, btu still some. Concerta isnt too good for abusing,
    which is why its so widely prescribed, but it works wodners for ADD.


    Ive tried chewing them up before, abnd it works alright...but the
    chewing of it is really unpleasant and tastes gross.


    just tell the doctor that concerta is making you really tired and its
    not really fixing the problem, see if u can go fo radderal or
    dexedrine, those are both nice as shit.


    or if ur lucky u can go for prescription meth, i forgot what its called,
    hmmm, well i cant remember. Whatever look into it.

    I just got a prescription for concerta today. I took an 18 mg a couple
    hours ago... all I feel is like I have better concentration. I feel a
    little stimulated and "happy", but I bet that's just a placebo effect.
    I was only prescribed concerta instead of adderall because the doctor
    said that concerta has a lower chance of causing a panic attack. My
    anxiety disorder is completely gone and I haven't had a panic attack in
    three years. I told her that, and she said that if I can go a month on
    concerta without any anxiety, I can switch to adderall if I want to.



    And you know how you're warned not to take amphetamines if you have a
    history of Tourette's syndrome? I haven't been diagnosed with TS and my
    parents don't believe me that I have it, but I swear to god I get the
    symptoms exactly. Anyway, so far, concerta has actually HELPED my TS.
    Usually I'm blinking my eyes and moving my face muscles and all kinds
    of shit a lot, but I haven't had any compulsions to since I took it.

    These are easy as hell to break. Just get a Gerber multitool or
    leatherman, put it between the main part, and squeeze. breaks extremely
    easy and can be taken apart (sponge, etc) well.

    The colored skin gives you a great boost if you just need to focus for a couple hours. By swallowing the skin, you will not be getting that nasty rush each hour if you take the whole capsule as prescribed. Just a little advice :)

    It sounds like Concerta keeps people awake at night, doesn't make them alert in the day, and is not as intense as adderall. Why in the world do doctors prescribe it? My doctor pushed me to take adderall, which has worked great. My crazy psychiatrist tried to switch me to concerta but I didn't want to mess up my good pattern. Why would a doctor prefer concerta? Does anyone who takes it prefer it?
