I haven't posted in ages, but I need your advice/thoughts/opinions. Yesterday my doc prescribed me ritalin extended release. When I noticed the pills were different & checked the bottle I was a bit baffled. I know if he were to change my script at all he would have told me. Either my doc or my pharmacy screwed up because he has always prescribed regular ritalin for me, NEVER ER. I didn't even know this existed. The time release element makes me quite nervous (because, yes, I do snort, although I know I shouldn't). The big question: Does anyone know about or have experience with the difference between snorting regular ritalin vs. ER? I would assume crushing the ER/time release whould have a stronger(and possibly more dangerous) effect (a la oxycontin). But, to be truthful, I have already tried it this morning and it seems quite the same as regular ritalin. Hmmmm. Thoughts?
