    SWIMused to crush up the beads found in Adderall XR into a fine powder and snort. As far asSWIM recalled, it was decent but not as good as taking it orally. This may be due to the fact that SWIM snorted low amounts...

    Recently, a little bird told SWIM that crushing the Adderall XR beads and snorting doesn't do anything. Little bird said it renders the Adderall(crushed beads = powder) useless. SWIM needs some answers.

    Anyone know of anything about this?

    ALSO, PS(off Snortingtopic): SWIM knows that a side effect of Adderall is bronchodilation, and SWIM enjoys when he is able to breathe well.As the Adderall effects taper off, SWIM notices it's harder to breathe normally and has noticed his breathinghad becomeshallow.(SWIM also smokes weed and cigs daily)

    SWIM has to take deep breaths to get the sufficient amount of oxygen in his lungs... or at least that's whathe says itfeels like. After about a day, this bronchoconstriction effect alleviates and breathing becomes normal. SWIM is wondering if the bronchodilation effect contributes to the "what-seems" bronchoconstriction after the Adderall run.

    Any help appreciated! Thanks@!

    about snorting adderall XRs, swim got his hands on some of the 30mg half orange/half clear capsules.swim then poured out about 20mg/30mg, crushed up the beads into a fine powder until there was no chunksof the beads left.swim said the appearance of the powder was an orange-ish white color.

    swim then snorted the 20mg line. between2-3 minutes after swim snorted the adderall powder, he began to feel the effects n had a minor drip. about 5 minutes later, swim noticed the reinforcing effects from snorting as it goes right passed the blood-brain barrier, into the brain. *rush*

    fortunately, the pharm geln fillers in the adderall cannot pass the blood-brain barrier(or cannot pass through very easily), however, the amphetamine salts are able to pass easily. which is good... but! Unfortunately, all that filler n gunk stays in your nostrals which isn't healthy for the mucus membranes in your nose.

    so all in all,swim did notice the effects from snorting the crushed addy XR beads, a (roughly)20mg line.but swim said he'd rather jus take the pill orally instead asthe effects last a lot longer.he also said that snorting gives a decent rush but didn't last nearly as long as takin' it orally.

    PS: maybe these ppl that say snorting addy XR's won't do shit either prolly didn't break up the beads enuff (or at all?:s) -OR- took too small of a dose. but, who knows?

    Snorting XR indeed works, however it may not be considered as recreational as snorting regular Adderall. x (swim takes to long to write) has tried it. x feels that snorting Dexedrine is much better anyway, but would suggest crushing the XR VERY VERY fine, finer than regular adderall. If conditions permit, use a mortar and pestle. And about it being harmful to your nasal membranes, anything you snort save a nasal decongestant is abrasive to the membranes. XR may be released more slowly into the capillaries in the nose, but this is just a speculation. There really should be no difference.

    OK, listen:
    Snorting the xr is practically, well honestly a pain in the ass and not worth the time. Im prescribed to the xr's and during school the tablets for those short periods i need to study.
    Im telling you the tablets, yes, they are easy, and actually worth snorting(well, when i snorted them i really didnt feel that much different, this was back in the day)

    but the xr's omg, i tried to crush those. damn its almost impossible. I even tried hitting them with a hammer and crush them. I dont see how you can crush them.

    What you need to do is tell your doctor that you dont need the adderal all day, just tell him that you only need it for short work period hours, such as maybe studying or writing a paper, or working on a project or something like that.

    as for crushing, a film canister and a screw driver with a handle that fits snugly into canister can crush the beeds(use a twisting motion not pounding)without having them fly everywhere

    I have been doing this for years. As soon as my doctor said we could change to the XR for more efficient effects, I thought "Fuck! Noooo.....!". But, aha, behold, for this method will make insufflation problems a thing of the past. And, it's not too complicated, so you don't have to be a atomic physicist with an industrial laboratory to do this, like so many other methods out there.

    1. Empty the capsule of the extended release spansules a shallow dish, preferably a petri dish but this is not necessary. The shallow level is just for efficent use of the syringe (next part).

    2. Heat water. Do NOT boil the water. Not only is this not needed, but it will sabotage the process. Many a tear has fallen as I tried this and wasted yet another precious pill. In fact, the hottest temperature on a tap is perfect. Just make sure it reaches it's hottest, and steam is visible. When the water has reached this state, QUICKLY dash the dish under the tap. The more water, the more solution there will be, and that translates to more time drying. There should only be enough water to fully immerse the spansules, any more is waste. Dash the dish back to a flat surface. The spansules will begin to dissolve immediately. You will notice a dark, definably orange powder to appear and dissolve in the water, while the lighter, definably tan extended release shells to sink to the botton. You just successfully iscolated the amphetamine salts from the pill binders!

    3. Use a syringe (many people think of "shots" or "needles" when they hear "syringe", but a syringe is actually just a graduated cylinder with a plunger attached and a narrow-mouth opening. Syringes are needle-less by definition) to suck up the water mixed with the amphetamine salts. Take care not to inadvertently suck up one of the shells at the bottom of the mixture. Alternatively, a simple filtration method may be applied.

    4. Move to a warm, dry place, and let sit until powder reappears and water evaporates. An easy way to do this is place the mixture in an pre-heated to 175F (Around 140C.) This takes about an hour and a half. Higher temperatures have not been sufficiently tested; go higher at your own risk because burning is a possibility. (The smell of burnt amphetamine is one that doesn't have a ton of possibilities for excuse.)

    When you use a mortar and pestle, you are still grinding up all of the pill binders and insufflating them. Ever notice how cocaine barely stings or burns at all when you snort it compared to adderall, dexedrine, methylphenidate, etc? Well it doesn't have binders (and its a topical analgesic, but still.) Amphetamine pills prepared this way burn alot less and there's less powder, making it easy to take higher doses.

    Your telling me you have never heard of cut coke? I mean comon, if anything most street drugs are bound to be cut with worse stuff then some polymer. I also don't really understand why people find it so damn hard to crush the XR beads. You don't even really need to buy a mortar and pestle, you can easily improvise one with like a short glass cup with a glue stick and maybe a small skin make up bottle.

    (sorry for late reply)

    how to break them up

    SWIM found the effects of adderrall xr's to be much different than the regular. If SWIMs going to binge all night hell snort 2o mg's of the regular all night up to about 160-180mg max over the course of say 12 hours.

    To break up the XR's.....say a 30mg.....arrange into two equal piles with a heavy duty card (like a hotel key card) .....CAREFULLY place the card over it and apply pressure to the edges so no beads will come out. Take the edge of a bottle cap and just rub it hard back and forth constantly applying pressure so nothing goes out the sides. Then push down and scrape back and forth on the table and repeat until its powdery enough.

    SWIM still thinks that the XR's give him more of a jumpy ritalin tweaking effect, while normal adderrall provides him with a more controlled semi-euphoric feeling.

    C'mon! Everyone knows you put the pills/material in a dollar bill, then crush! Especially with adderall XR as it's just a buch of little balls. =P

    The easiest way to do this, if you are like me and don't like snorting adderall, is to empty the contents of the capsule into a shot glass and use the back end of a screwdriver or anything with a firm rounded end. The more snugly the rounded end of the instrument fits into the shotglass, the easier it will be to crush up the beads. Press and rotate the instrument into the bottom of the shot glass. After about a minute, you should have a very fine powder resembling the powder you would find in a pixie stick. Leave the powder in the shot glass and simply add your favorite drink (I prefer soda) into the shot glass with the powder. Drink. You will shortly have the effects of adderall without the time delay of adderall XR.

    this may not give as much of a rush as snorting, but grinding w/ mortar then "parachuting" in either the original container or wet tissue paper will make it hit you hard and pretty damn fast- not quite as fast as snorting though.

    swim attempted both snorting and parachuting routes with crushed capsules last week in a carefully controlled...ahem...experiment. swim found that parachuting not only yielded longer results, but actually a more intense 'rush', although not quite on par with normal adderall. as for the bead crushing, swim has always found that those two classic standbys, a lighter and currency from your country of choice, work on the beads just as well as any other type of substance that might need crushing. for some reason the xr doesnt seem to absorb as well nasally as well as regular adderall even after crushing. swim is going to go ahead and blame the presence of the inactive ingredients, although swim wants to know exactly why this seems to be the case in many people.

    If any of you have a shotglass and adderall XR, SWIM would HIGHLY reccomend this. It worked perfectly for SWIM, who just tried it. Only difference was SWIM used water because the adderall seemed to absorb into it better. Personally SWIM thinks this is a better method than the dollar bill, because you don't lose a single bead, or any powder that sticks to the bill. Also, it only took SWIM about 20 seconds to completly grind up 40mg of beads.

    swim just scraped the bill with the credit card of his choice afterwards, but RGM, swim is intrigued by the shotglass method and will attempt it next time his lab rat gets the ol' add script filled.

    MT has found that pouring the contents of an XR pill onto a shelf, then using something like the bottom of a hairbrush (block strays from flying by putting up paper walls) to crush however much of the pill is to be released at the same time, then using the paper to funnel what's left back into the empty capsule and ingesting it orally works well for a kick-in of about 15-50 mins, dependent on how much food has been eaten. MT finds that, on an empty stomach, the effects seem to last longer and begin slower, but the peak seems to be more intense. This could, however, be due to issues in the crushing process.

    Snorting it doesnt last long enough for SWIM no matter how much he has it's gone in a couple of hours so orally is a good bet because even though theres no rush or super strong effects right away it lasts longer and its alot smoother and comfortable if you take it all at once. plus you dont have to deal with that horrible dripping.

    swim dont like to toot his own horn but he is "god"(the almighty creator) when it comes to m-amp(c10h15n), so he has a very high tolerence, and right now as he types he is tweeking balls off of adderall xr30mg(amphetamine) crushed into powder. if swim is high, it will get anyone high.(it is possible swiy has not crushed enough of the lil balls, they have to be crushed very very finely, like instead of applying presure its more like apply presure and grind from side to side. when its completly crushed it will look like alot, and very fluffly.if not completly broke down the xr in the name is still true)
