    Can these capsules be snorted in any way?
    SWIM opened one of the Ritalin LA, and lots of little balls came out, SWIM believes these are too big to be snorted, it's not powder, and they are really hard to crush.

    SWIM wants to know if anyone has snorted this, and what would be the good dosage for a newbie.

    The ones SWIM has are Ritalin LA 30mg.

    Thank u all.

    PS.: A quick answer would be good, as SWIM has all the stuff in front of him now.

    (Edit: Too heavy to snort.)

    Yes, SWIM has snorted these type of pills before. Just use whatever SWIY can think of to grind up the little balls into fine powder, arrange into lines, and snort away. They are time release, that's why the contents are little balls. As far as dose, it's entirely up to SWIY. SWIM snorted about 3 pills worth on his first time, and was decently high, went on to take 3 more pills orally later that night. But, SWIM was trying to get pretty high and buzzed. So, one pill will get SWIY buzzed for awhile, 3+ will make SWIY feel pretty nice for several hours+...it all depends on how high SWIY wants to get. Keep in mind the the high is long lasting, even in lower doses.

    Thanks kacz, SWIM tried to crush'em into powder but it ain't easy, they're too jumpy, the best SWIM did was to hold a bit in his fingers and crush it with his nails the most he could. SWIM did snort a bit, but not at all the 30mg as SWIM lost more than half the balls when he opened the capsule.

    (For whoever is reading, do NOT open the capsule directly into the table, the little balls will bounce off of it and so long for your high).

    Anyway SWIM feels some of the regular effects but very very light -and not at all like cocaine, SWIM was wanting to try this myth.
    But he thinks the light effects it's because he only snorted like a third of the pill.

    SWIM will try it again later, having been warned by himself on opening the capsule with a little bit more calm, lol.


    Take care

    SWIcosmicruler, these are long acting capsules, SWIM just mentioned why he was trying to snort a bit. And also SWIM has somehow developped a very high tolerance for these pills orally.

    When SWIM ground them up, he did so in a very big, deep bowl so that when they did bounce, they stayed inside of it and weren't lost. Don't know if this is what SWIY did or not but it seemed to work for SWIM. Anyway, yeah if SWIY manages to grind it up and not lose it, a whole pill's worth will produce noticeable effects.

    SWIM has snorted these before, usually SWIM will place the balls on a desk and the dull end of a knife (steak knife with wooden handle) to crush the balls up. Then when the balls are for the most part broken up SWIM uses the other end to spread it out and will make the powder as fine as possible. SWIM has never been able to get the powder as fine as cocaine but everytime SWIM has snorted ritalin la he has had the effects that is expected. SWIY that has had little experience when snorting ritalin or focalin is recommended to start out slow, SWIM doesn't expect 30mg will be to much for you to begin with, side effects might include increase heart rate, increase sweating, dry throat, and for SWIM he likes to smoke cigarettes. (but then again, it is a form of speed)
    Of course for SWIY it depends on what his reasons for snorting these pills are. SWIM has snorted ritalin for concentration reasons, "partying" (increase drinking ability), and a definate increase in sexual pleasure.
    One thing to remember, SWIY can overdose on snorting ritalin depending on how much is taken within a given period of time. From SWIM's experience, snorting has a more direct path to blood stream which gives short term effects, but the long term effects (a couple hours) are the same as taking it orally. BE RESPONSIBLE WITH THE DOSAGE SWIY takes. SWIM has overdosed by taking to much within an hour, and the effect was intense nausia and uncomfortable sitting/sleeping position, but time made SWIM better. the know limits before taking excessive doses.

    SWIM absolutely loves the feeling of this drug. Make sure to use a stone mortar and pestle when grinding the balls, SWIM bought his for like 4 bucks.

    Snorting is more addictive than most other mediums to taking this drug besides smoking or injecting, which are just plain lethal, so SWIM advises to be mindful and enjoy rationally.

    SWIM makes sure to only take it when he's in a good mood though, because it can bring SWIM down into a nasty depression that takes hours to get over. The half life of Ritalin LA 30mg crushed and snorted on average for an adult male of 150 lbs is 4 hours, and that doesnt even include coming down completely.

    Also, Don't take it if you have ADHD and want to get high. It does nothing but calm a person with ADHD down. ADD on the other hand is a different story.:thumbsup:

    SkitchSkitch added 5 Minutes and 1 Seconds later...

    ps, SWIM took a whole pill crushed into 2 even small lines the first time. SWIY should take what he thinks is enough to handle.

    It really isn't hard to crush the beads!! just tip them on a table and crush with a spoon.
    1/3 of a 30mg ritalin is 10mg of Ritalin and you felt an effect off of it ? You wouldn't get an effect off 10mg of Cocaine!! You would need at least 30mg of Coke to get an effect 30mg of Ritalin would get you pretty high so I would say Ritalin is stronger than Coke!
