    A friend told me the following:
    by masterofpuppets222
    "So we all know trying to abuse Concerta is a bitch. Especially when you have a capsule and you have no idea what to do with it. So in this FAQ I'm going to try to help you out a bit.

    What you'll need:
    -Razor blade/Exacto knife or anything sharp really
    -Card
    -Something to crush the snortable part with
    -Concerta (shown here is a 36mg pill)
    [​IMG]

    Step 1:
    Take your razor blade and cut a slit all the way down the pill. Put the corner of the blade under the coating you just cut and start prying it off with your blade. This coating is relatively easy to cut off if it has warmed up a little bit. If it is a little warmer, it will generally come off in about 3 pieces. If it is colder, for example, if it is straight out of the pill bottle, chances are that it will be a bitch to get off, as shown in the example below. To help prevent this, a trick I came up with in my time of Concerta usage was to put the pill in the microwave for about 2 seconds. Or, perhaps carry it around in your pocket for a while. The warmth will soften the coating.

    [​IMG]

    Now, this coating has 22% of the mg content of the pill, and is the instant release part of the capsule, that dissolves into your blood stream as soon as ingested. Eat this. It tastes terrible, but it would be a terrible waste not to eat it. I usually save eating it for after I've completed everything, right before I snort the rest of the pill. Under your tongue works well, as does swallowing it with water.

    Step 2:
    If you're really fuckin' good at cutting shit you might be able to bypass this step by completing it along with step 1. But I'm not, so I'll put this segment in here as well.
    Cut down the waxy coating of the pill with your razor, and again, try prying it off by putting the corner under the wax. This one is a lot harder to get off, so it will most likely come off in many more pieces. This is a bitch of a step and may take a while, but hang in there, it's worth it. Once you have taken this off, discard it, it's worthless.

    [​IMG]

    Step 3:
    Now, you will notice that there are three parts to the pill. The white and the yellow parts are the valuable parts, together containing the last 78% of the mg content of the pill. The brown piece is just the time release mechanism, that lets out little bits of methylphenidate over time into your system. As your stomach acids affect the pill, this brown sponge pushes the methylphenidate out of the capsule, and into your system. Give this piece the chop, and chuck it.

    [​IMG]

    Step 4:
    Fold your yellow and white pieces into a piece of paper, or something to contain the powder. Take your crushing device, and, well, crush them. When you've crushed them all up, it should look a little like this:

    [​IMG]

    Step 5:
    Take your card and crush it up as fine as you can possibly get it. Unless of course, you wanna be sniffing constantly to keep the substance in your nose, and have it crust up a fair bit in there. Now, roll up your bill, and rail those suckers!

    [​IMG]

    I am not sure, but isn't the tek for certain Hydromorphone/oxycodone ER pills the same? Wouldnt it work the same way? I remember seeing a ER hydro or oxy pill that looked almost the same at had the same 2 layers..

    I say great job on this post

    Does You take Concerta like SWIM?

    I have done this and it does indeed work quite well - but is far from ideal. I takes 2x 18 daily as prescribed so obviously the proportion of MGs in the powder is much less / not really worth it.

    How powdered is You able to get it? Has You managed to crush it quite fine, or does it gum up due to the wax?

    SWIM still much prefers Concerta over IR, especially due to its lower ability to be abused. He doesn't notice a comedown either, and is very productive - doing very well in fact.


    Ps. Did you get my last message?

    Whosoever have their pets tried Ritalin sniffing he should notice a big difference compared to Concerta, according to my neighbour's dog, feels the IR almost directly in the lungs, this viscosity shit ruins the experience, He wonders If is a possible way to get rid of or reduce it , making more dry the shit, though works in a way. Any monkey tried in a nasal spray or somethig?

    Neither IR or Concerta 'hurt' for SWIM intranasal. IR was obviously way better, but concerta is good anyway. Oral, Anal, Nasal, however u want it baby

    Very nice post! I got quite adept at doing this modification, and could actually go from a Concerta to a line in less than 2 minutes. It took him 15 in the beginning. He takes Adderall IR now, so things are different.

    Even with this procedure the snorted concerta remains gooey in the nose.

    Yes. I was not fond of the glue in his nose that lingered for days. Concerta is probably best taken by simply chewing the pill to break the osmotic pressure time release mechanism.

    I was curious as to other alternatives to nasal administration; could he/she take Concerta orally with the removed time release agent? could he/she administer the Concerta powder through sub-lingual administration?

    SWIM kinda likes picking he's noses after snorting concerta as there is so much to pick :thumbsup:

    If SWIM wan'ts to get high off concerta, I will usually grind most of the white parts in the pill and snort them and eat the rest... Alltough I think it would be best if he just ate all of it, couple of times I have tried, the effects have taken a bit longer to manifest, but the high certainly lasts longer...

    I am also curious about this too. I amn't into snorting pills that much and is wondering if he could just cut the time release off and leave the wax on the other part with the MPH and swallow or sublingual with out wax?

    Yeah, it will still be gooey if u snort right after u break it down and crush like shown above. Alot will get lost in nose-goobers etc.

    I've found concerta works best with a spray bottle (those pump things that normally contain oxymetazoline). After the plastic is gone, break up the white/*tip* part (tip - red if 54mg, white if 36, like above), put it where the oxymetazoline used to be, add water, shake, and there u go. Won't goo up but should still give a nasal type high.

    aridchimp added 1 Minutes and 13 Seconds later...

    also sub-lingual is VERY pleasant. Nice numb feeling and strong high

    the first step of cutting off the white coating can be bypassed just by running the pill under hot water and rubbing it....the contents inside will NOT be harmed due to the second plastic-like coat that doesnt let water through. best way found to do it is to snort the white and yellow and eat the brown green half.

    Bolded by me
    Respectfully, I recommend You peruse this thread again - as the above-bolded portions are not consistent with what has been posted throughout (nor SWIM's experience.) The white coating, if bypassed as suggested, would be a loss of the 22% of the mg content of the pill -- the issue is not whether the contents would be damaged. Further, the 'brown green' half is simply the time-release mechanism - so there is no point in eating it, as suggested (in my opinion, that is.)
    If I misinterpreted your post, I apologize in advance - cheers.

    Swim says to try crumbling the white/yellow part with fingers and then cooking the powder a bit on a spoon w/o water. I said that should harden the stuff and make it a bit more insufflatable. I havent tried this with concerta yet, but it has worked with morphine CR and other waxy tablets.
