    High doses of adderall had SWIM tweeking his ass off Off course SWIM had sevral speed highs, Dextroamphetamine, Ritalin, Amphetamine But SWIM Still feels very noob in amphetamine. SWIM can not even fathom what street meth is like. Someone who has used meth in detail explain the differences? Is meth very intense?? SWIM is almost tempted to go on meth and sadly i think SWIM might end up using meth in his future. But SWIM is staying strong.

    Ziggy the potbelly pig has told me that while adderal and ritalin make him 'go fast' there is not much in the way of euphoria, and meth on the other hand gives loads of euphoria. Alot of Zig's go-fast type friends have been known to use adderall in a pinch. Zig has read that ritialin doesn't have as much of an effect on your norepenephrine levels, all the amphets work on swiy's reward center in the brain, but they affect different levels differently. Ziggy hopes that may help!!

    Meth vs Adderall is like Heroin vs Codeine in my opinion.

    No matter how much adderall you take, it won't take you as high as meth will, just like no amount of codeine will equal the heroin high. I think in the case of codeine there's actually a ceiling of effect level and taking more is just pointless and a waste.

    Meth and Heroin both affect dopamine levels insanely fast, where as adderall and codeine do it to a lesser extent and more slowly.

    You can however draw very vague and rough comparisons.

    For example, someone who abuses adderall will quite often exhibit behavior similar to a meth user, like obsessive / compulsive behavior patterns, cleaning, organizing dvd collection in alphabetical order, paranoia, increased libido.

    Not exactly sure if this is the type of comparison you were looking for...

    Well. According to the bum that lives out under a balcony on my street. Adderall is a better tool, which is why it is used as such. Although to someone with no tolerance it will give you a nice feeling of euphoria, it is not very euphoric for people who use adderall say for things like work or school or that use stronger stimulants. Speed...makes you feel really good. Not quite as functional, but way more pleasant. Don't get me wrong, Adderall isn't that much weaker than ice, it's just more functional. ya, that's what the weird tweaker bum says.

    Ziggy thinks that Bum has an interesting take on it! Zig prefers stronger stims and has found addy's don't provide much euphoria for him, but he didn't reckon it was due to stronger stim usage, just different chems effective different receptors in his piggy-cranium!

    My former roommate in college used to take adderall as a study aid. She was much more social and chatty on it although the dosage had a lot to do with it. When it would start wearing off she would want more or be very edgy. It also completely zapped her hunger for anything besides coffee or juice and she said she was hypersenstive to smells and the thought of eating made her gag. She couldn't even handle toothpaste after she took it. It didn't always focus my roommate, either. Sometimes her intent to cram for a midterm all night would end up her looking at sphynx kittens or some other random thing.

    Eventually she tried meth hoping it would keep her more focused and help her lose a little bit of the weight she's put on during the dreaded "freshman 15". In her case, I noticed that the effects were similar to a point where she'd then become fixated or stuck. She could be very chatty at first, but then she'd start to tweak and get stuck on her laptop (and not usually on her schoolwork). It also completely zapped her appetite and she wouldn't eat or even remember to drink some fluids until she came out if it. It kept her up much longer than the adderall would have and somewhere along the line she started watching porn for hours on end and the sexual effects seemed to take over her experience.

    Oddly, I also noticed, that when she would occasionally take adderall (usually a large dose by this time because I believe she was probably wanting the feel of the high) if she took a little bit too much it would now have the exact same effect on her and she would go straight for the porn, just maybe not for as long.

    To reiterate what I'm sure has already been said, there are so many personal factors that effect exactly how you will feel and even that can change from time to time depending on how well you take care of yourself and individual personality. I hope this helped a little, though.

    Assuming that by "tool" you mean that it is prescribed for attentional problems, it should perhaps be pointed out that so is methamphetamine. However, this likely says more about just how differently the same medications can affect different people (and therefore, the OP should reasonably interpret the responses with an implicit "your mileage may vary").

    SWIMs first time using amphetamine they took ritalin, and now uses meth.

    When SWIM took ritalin, they felt more energized, social, and jittery. They had the usual side effects like jaw clenching and fidgety hand movements. Had HORRIBLE comedown the day after.

    When SWIM used meth, they fealt very euphoric, social, and "on top of the world." Had no fidgety movements, slight jaw clenching, but was controlable unlike when SWIM took ritalin. No comedown at all. The only time SWIM feels like they're "coming down" is when they go days without sleep and barely any nourishment from food. But according to SWIMs friends, having no comedown effects(unless 5+ days binge) is rare, meaning its different for everyone.

    Also, SWIM says that after experiencing meth, the lack of euphoria when using adderal or ritalin is VERY noticable. It doesn't compare in SWIMs opinion. SWIM has a friend who gives SWIM adderal if they ask, and SWIM won't accept the stuff(because of an extremely uncomfortable experience taking adderal to compensate for meth at the end of a binge.)

    Hopefully this helps, let alone make any sense. SWIM hasn't slept much prior to this post ;)

    SWIM thinks adderall has more peripheral effects and more side effects like jaw clenching and gurning, and others, per dose, than meth does.

    Meth just takes longer to get to that super tweaked out state. A good amount of time before this it is just very euphoric, but calm and in control while still being very energized.

    It may be because the meth going around is always D-Meth...while Adderall is a racemic mix of D- and L-Amphetamine. The Levo form of both meth and adderall/amphetamine affects your peripheral nervous system more, while the Dextro form of both affects your CNS more (and therefore accounts for more euphoria.)

    I'm sure if we had racemic D/L Methamphetamine, it would be more physical, jittery, etc. In SWIMs experience Meth isn't the experience depicted by propaganda and other people - running around doing repetitive mindless things over and over. (OK, SWIM is guilty of doing this with masturbation, but that's it). And picking your face till it has potholes. It just hasn't ever happened like that, even when pretty damn tweaked.

    Of course, the first times SWIM did adderall he couldn't tell if he was high, and needs a higher than usual amount to get high (like this from when he first started and no tolerance) so it is probably different for other swimmers.

    So my pet reindeer recently got prescribed 210mg vyvanse a day and 8mg of klonopin a day. Now this reindeer happened to meet a former meth dealer, former marine, former sniper, current nazi schizo.....lmao anyways i gave him 210mg all at once and he still compared that high to doing the smallest line of meth. Now....I think he was saving face, bc he was running up and down bothering my reindeer and his friend all night while they tried to beat pookemon stadium 2 damn master cup....but he never would say anything spectacular. I think meth is a waste to get into. just get prescribed the things you enjoy like i did. 8mg klonnopin and 210mg vyvanse. (vyvanse gives a euphoria that adderall xr has never given me, its like a leveled but constant adderall IR euphoria)

    SWIM has been prescribed Adderall 30mg for over seven years, used it as prescribed and regularly for recreational purpose and had noticed that the single MOST noticeable and sought-after trait in shards is the absence of anxiety.
    Adderall, As much as swim loves them swim's precious orange babes is sadly the number one mind-f**king, mind-muting, "need-a-Xanax-now"-causing, source of anxiety there is.:(
    With shards, SWIM cherishes the median that the MDMA/oozy vibe provides, thus bringing something that swim's precious adderall full on won't provide.

    Meth is pretty much like 5x adderall, in my opinion.

    I know the OP requested personal experiences but I believe the studies I have attached may provide some helpful insight. Also Mr. Carl L Hart has some videos that can be located by Google search that may provide helpful insight. I'm short on time this morning or I would upload them.

    View attachment A comparison of amphetamine and methamphetami.pdf
    Conclusions—We have found specific conditions where METH is more potent than AMPH, but
    this study and others that used higher doses of these drugs are not consistent with the generalized
    characterization of METH as a more potent psychostimulant.

    View attachment Comparison of methamphetamine and d amphetamine.pdf
    Conclusions—These data are consistent with previous findings suggesting that the two
    amphetamines produce a similar dose-related profile of acute effects in humans, with
    methamphetamine producing greater effects on some mood and cardiovascular measures. The
    amphetamines were self-administered equally indicating their equivalence for abuse potential.
