Q: METAMINA VS RITALIN & SPEED?

ME:PUMPED UP! HAS ANY ONE TRYED THE NEW ADHD DRUG:"METAMINA"? ALLSO CALLED "DEX AMPHETAMINE". SOME BODY TOLD ME ,THAT IT IS SIMILAR TO "METHAPHETAMINE"?! I AM CONCIDERING TO TRY THIS MED, BECAUSE I DISSLIKE "RITALIN", JUST FEEL WEARD AND HAVE A LOT OF SIDE EFFECTS. LIKE DEPRESSION, PALPITATIONS, SOCIO FOBIA. I HAVE DONE A LOT OF STREAT AMPHETAMINES,METHAMPHETAMINE, AND ONLY FELT VERY GOOD. NEVER WIRED UP OR SPEEDED. JUST FOCUSED,CALM HIGHIERD WELLBEING & CONFIDENSE. OK! MAYBE SOME INSOMNIA & DYSPHORY WHEN THE DRUG WAS WEARING OFF, AFTER 7 hrs. I HOPE THAT METAMINA WILL GIVE ME THE SELF CONFIDENSE,FOCUS,ENERGY, BETTER SOCIAL ABILYTIS, MORE VERBAL IN SPEAKING AND WORD FORMULATION IN WRITING. THAT SPEED DOES. BUT I FEAR THAT METAMINA, WILL ALLSO GIVE ME THE SAME SIDE EFFECTS AS THE SPEED,DOES!?

Metamina is the dextroamphetamine molecule with an amino acid attached.  It has to be taken orally and is metabolized to dextroamphetamine.  If it is taken by other direct routes, such as IV or "snorted", it has no effect since the active ingredient is still bound to the amino acid.  It kind of makes it less prone to abuse.  In the US, it is sold under the trade name Vyvanse.  Basically, once metabolized, it's the same as dextroamphetamine or Dexedrene.

 

BTW, the answer from "forget-me-not" is idiotic.  Desoxyn, chemically methamphetamine hydrochloride, is a valid choice for the treatment of ADHD when other stims don't seem to work.  However, Metamina is not the same as methamphetamine.

Street speed is NOT your solution.   Meth will make your 'ADD' (if you actually have it) worse.  You cannot take meth regularly without becoming a meth-head freakazoid.  You will end up irreparably damaging your brain and doing something stupid whihc will end you up in "Hotel Gray-Bar" (the slammer;ie: J A I L).  I have no idea what Metamina is but I think you need to go to a rehab.  And perhaps stops taking the steroids....
