Basically this was a big waste of time. I do suffer from ADD and have never gotten a prescription so I was curious as to what it would do to me.
I got some from my brother one day. I took the time release capsule off of the Concerta and took it. Later after not feeling any affects I took the Ritalin. I layed down waiting for the affects to take place. I did have a feeling of a slight buzz that lasted for all of 30 seconds. I waited longer and eventually got bored and started playing MSN Hearts a game I can't normally stand. I played that game for 5 hours straight, with my eyes fixated on the screen. I was supposed to go out that night but my friends could hardly take me away from the game. Fortunally... for me at least we didn't end up going so I continued with my game, for another hour till I was forced to get out of their living room. Also what was strange this whole time I couldn't stop licking my bottom lip, which is a habit I don't have ever. I couldn't stop even after I was given some lip balm, even after some conscious effort I couldn't stop. Going on with the story I finally left the living room(after being forced out) I went to the bedroom and sat there playing a video game for an hour, when suddenly I felt nauseated. I ran to the bathroom and puked up so much. I felt better but continued to play the game. I finally tried to go to sleep. I couldn't sleep for anything. I tried everything counting sheep, telling myself I was sleep but I just couldn't. I did eventually get a half hour of sleep at about 4 a.m. but soon woke up for no reason and couldn't get back to sleep. I was okay the next day and was able to go to sleep that next night.
