    swim just got 2 25mg adderall XR pills. swim was planning on cutting in half to take 12.5 mg for the first time. but swim didnt realize they came in capsules, that would probably change the effects if one were to swallow 1/2 a capsule?

    so, is there any way for swim to get a half dose without screwing up how the pill is supposed to kick in and everything?

    or

    how bad would it be just to take 25mg the first time?

    some people seem not to need more than 10mg, if swim were one of those people, what would happen if swim took 25mg?

    thanks.

    i just talked with another user of adderall, and she has got me worried:

    "That might not be good for you, because starting and stopping taking them will lower your metabolism close to zero. In other words, if your one of those slender people who can eat anything and never gain weight, [i am*] and then you start and stop taking Adderall, you will gain alot of weight. Trust me, it happened to me, I used to be skinny, and lets just say, now I'm not. =/ "


    then i said: "even if i never took it more than once a week?"

    she says: "I hate to say it, but I still think it will mess you up, as far as metabolism goes. I'm just saying this because I wish I would have never toyed with it, and I would still be skinny and have my metobolism."



    it seems to me, this is the exact opposite of what i have heard people say about amphetamines and weight. does adderall affect the apetite only or also the metabolism? i am a wrestler so keeping the weight down is very important, although i hadnt planned on using adderall more than once or twice.

    It suppresses appetite as well as speeding up metabolism

    ok. i took 1 25 xr pill 3 hours ago, and im not feeling anything. i ate breakfast right before taking it, which included cereal and milk + cran-grape juice. do you think thats preventing the adderall from working?

    what should i do next time to make the second pill work?

    The acidity in the cran-grape juice could have well done this.

    Don't incriminate yourself, use SWIM ( someone who isn't me ) or something along those lines. In SWIM experience the best thing one could do with only 25mg take a tablespoon of baking soda and dissolve it in a cup of water. Drink this about an hour before taking the pill, also take a tums antacid pill with the baking soda. When taking the pill open up the capsule and pour the beads into SWIY mouth and chew them up as fine as possible and swallow.

    that is decent advice i would also say that if it increastes your motabolism you will get a depression afterwards.
    although i have not read any studies i would imagine this is very slight you would be lucky for a 2% rise IMO

    does chewing the beads eliminate the XR effect? so this would make for twice the potency, half the duration?

    thanks for your help.

    sorry for being a noob, and for forgeting to use swim.

    Yes, crushing the beads eliminates the extended release.. Doing this will give around 6 to 7 hours in my cat's experience

    since swiy is a wrestler he should make sure he is on adderall during the tournaments because if swim takes adderall the day before for the weigh in or w/e the next day swiy will be drained and his performance will be drastically reduced. although its kinda cheating to use amphetamine during a wrestling match...ever seen the cops episode where it takes 6 cops to get a 100lb tweakers arms behind his back? swim sure wouldnt want to fight someone who is on speed...

    mmm a little. when swim has like 40-60mg of adderall in him he can do 5 more pull ups, and 20 more push ups than he normally can. it increases endurance very noticeably, plus all his movements when he is hitting the punching bag feel pin point accurate and very solid. it defiantly gives you an advantage. if they do drug testing it will show up.

    blah. swim took the other 25mg xr pill today. he opened the capsule and chewed the beads.

    still virtually no positive effect. swims arms and fingers feel kinda jittery, holding a pencil and typing is slightly more difficult, similar to what swim feels on a high caffiene dose.

    should swim give up on amphetamines or try a higher dose some other time.

    swim is desperate for an effective stimulant, as swim is struggling to focus on homework and college essays. swim has 4 college essays due in a week, and 3 english essays due many weeks ago. swim does really well in school as long as there isnt writing involved (or boring math projects). (swim has a learning disorder, and really struggles to do writing assignments.) any suggestions for other stimulants to try?

    25 mg of adderall isnt really that great of a dose, even in children. swim would do 2-4 capsules at once, take some tums or baking soda with the dose, that will help absorption greatly. adderall is the best stimulant pill for studying and all other stimulants are compared to amphetamine in terms of effectiveness. if adderall isnt cutting it for swiy ritalin probably wont come close. dexidrine might work better than adderall but they are pretty much the same drug with different ratios of different amphetamine salts. swim is guessing that a higher dose would do the trick.

    so in terms of intensity, two 25mg xr's chewed would be equivalent to four 25 mg xr's swallowed whole.

    there are people who take four 25mg's of xr / day?

    yep same intensity except the whole capsules would last longer. swim dosent know anyone who takes 100mg a day but swim was on 2 30mg xrs in the morning for a while but it messed up his sleep too much. if this is a thing swiy is planning to do regularly make sure to take tolerance breaks on the weekends or sumptin cuz adderall loses its magic after many consecutive days. dont rationalize taking the adderall on swiy's break days, thats a slippery slope. good luck man.

    lol.. taking 2 adderall xrs crushed and taken orally would be like taking 2 adderall xrs.. not 4.. the idea of xr is extended release.. so that mean that it releases half of the dosage the first 4-6 hours... then releases the second after that point.. take a tums or 2 1 hour to 30 mins before you dose.. this should work...

    or you could get a little bowl and take a spoon and crush that shit up well.. put it on a little piece of toilet paper.. and roll it up.. and swallow that (<
    that will kick in a lot faster..

    hope that helps..
