    SWIM is wondering that if he crushs up his Ritalin (IR i think) then putting the powder under his tongue that it will be a quicker better high? opposed to snorting it?

    If SWIY crushes the Ritalin (methylphenidate) before placing under SWIYour tongue, it will be harder to keep under it, and therefore instead of being absorbed by the veins into your bloodstream, it will most likely be swallowed. Into the stomach. And then absorbed that way.

    SWIM believes that sublingual administration of methylphenidate is a good method, but she thinks it would be wise to place the whole tablet under the tongue if it is indeed instant release IR pill.

    IR if crushed is all powder correct? SWIM was also wondering how long should he keep the tablet under his tongue for best effects?

    SWIM just told his dog that it takes roughly 10-15 mins to be down to a powder under the tongue and is currently on 3 Ritalin IR 10mg sublingual and about to insufflate 1 plus smoke some hash plant :D should be a good night SWIM said

    My human test robot reported that sublingual administration of MPH appeared to take about 5-10 minutes as a powder to fully be absorbed, when compared to about insufflation which abosorbed at a quicker rate. (majority is absorbed when it determined marked numbness start to decrease; numbness would also only present itself at about 3-5 minutes while sucking under tongue vigorously) It claimed a virtually equivalent concentration of methylphenidate as compared to the insufflation RoA up his robonostrils, though with slightly less of a spiky rush.

    My quirky robot advised that sucking the substance under the tongue is KEY to quicken absorption. Otherwise it would have a soup of saliva and methylphenidate floating around other less absorbable tissues in the mouth, thus also requiring a more thorough water rinse to clean the mouth of the remaining substance.

    Sublingual RoA for methylphenidate is RoboRecommended, due to increase in effective absorption compared to oral, and less damaging to circuit tissue than robonostrils.

    Though I do still catch my rampant robot abusing laboratory MPH by both insufflation and sublingual administration..

    I'm kind of off topic here sorry. What I wanted to ask is it normal for SWIMs tongue to have minor spasms while doing sublingual methylphenidate ir?

    Your putting your tongue in a weird spot so small spasms may occur if held in the same position for extended amount of time. Kiddycrack recommends that you take breaks in between each dose and to drink lots of water to help prevent it from spasming.
