    As a 22 year old, I have used this medication for nearly a year now to treat my so-called "ADD". This medication slowed me down in life. It made me more anti-social and lazy than before while the drug is in effect. After about 3-4 hours of taking it, I get an extreme down and feel tired, lazy, depressed, anti-social and useless. The high is great but lasts only 2-3 hours. But it's de ... Show Full Comment

    I had been taking concerta XR (time release ritalin) since I was about 9 years old (started at 30mg and was at 90mg at age 23) but I started feeling like it wasn't working and that it was releasing too much at once vs being released a little at a time.

    It legit feels like being super concentrated while being super calm and relaxed all at the same time! It's very easy to focus on tasks, but for me, I am only able to focus when I have interest in something. If I have no interest in a task, I just simply won't do it. Still a great trip! XD

    I used it for 3 years, starting my Junior year of College. I had some studying/concentration problems, and some not so good grades before hand, but with the help of 1 pill/day, those things got better. Bad news? I stopped taking it after 3 years because I suffered congestive heart failure as a direct result of it. If it works for you, great, but be sure to get tests on your heart done regularly. I ...
