Default ritalin and klonopin

20mgs of Ritalin SR and 4mgs of Klonopin at once and I feel amazing. I feel so high yet so mellow and yet so talkative/extroverted.

That was probably the reasoning they went with when they marketed Dexamyl (dextroamphetamine mixed with amobarbitol) back in the 1930s-70s. Stimulant/depressant combinations seem to be fairly effective for immediate relief.

I took a dose, of a friend's mother's Dexamyl, in high school. It was the most intense euphoria and socially functional I've felt compared to other amphetamine medication's I've taken. I wanted to take it again, but my friend didn't get anymore. Too bad they don't manufacture it anymore. I would like to have the opportunity to try it again.

The effective medications have a tendency of being removed from the market or being rescheduled into Class I (i.e. illegal)

This is why I want the DEA to become DOA. The meds that produce a rapid & profound change in mood are highly effective. They also are the most potentially addictive.

The DEA is, I guess, about protecting junkies from their own poor choices. Screw patients who need powerful meds to deal with severe mental or physical problems.

And the DEA doesn't even protect junkies when they are the reason opioids are mixed with liver-toxic Tylenol. A chronic abuser of Vicodin is likely to die of liver failure long before the hydrocodone harms them, or do they seriously think a junkie will be sure not to take more than 8 a day and avoid drinking? They force junkies to buy black market drugs of unknown potency that could be laced with who knows what at sky high prices (that forces them into prostitution, burglary, robbery and the like to pay the cost). The DEA hurts both addicts & legitimate patients alike and you get to pay for it with your tax dollars. Especially when they fill prisons with non-violent drug offenders, who hurt nobody except possibly themselves. Oddly, we don't lock up alcoholics for inflicting self-harm.

That's because alcohol isn't harmful or addictive. Everybody knows that!

Default Re: ritalin and klonopin

might be an OK combination for occasional specially difficult SA occasions, to help you recover some self confidence
obviously very addictive though, although it seems not many of us have addictive type personalities

Why are you taking Ritalin and adderall? Do they work better together?

What doses do you take of each, and you had mentioned the adderall was the best antidepressant you have ever tried, so how does the ritilin help any futher when you are depressed?

So if you dont feel depressed until night when you are going to sleep, I don't understand when you would take the ritilin with the adderall to get the best effect.

do you think the Adderall XR is better than the regular Adderall you take several times a day?
