: anyone ever use ritalin as a performance enhancer? I need some info on this. It is supposed to be better than ephedrine/c/a stack.
: any help would be appreciated!
Ritalin (Methylphenidate Hydrochloride) is a CNS stimulant along the lines of Methamphetamine.
I can't quantify how it compares to E/C/A either as a fat burner (since it works as an anorexic, it may be better for a starvation diet =) or 'performance enhancer', but I can tell you that oral administration is not the ideal route for the latter. Ritalin tabs are pretty tame orally; most abusers will chop it up and do lines intranasally. It's important (as it is with all stimulants) to be careful with the dosages, especially if you're doing lines; a friend of mine did three tabs, then proceeded to do sprints for some God awful reason. He said the experience was as though his heart wasn't going fast enough for his legs (I should mention he's a hardcore user =). Depending on your level of tolerance, I would suspect that you wouldn't want to do more than one tab at a time before exercise unless you wish to self-combust.
