Anyone can look it up and get the side affects, but what people actualy FEEL, is a series of different meantal, and physical states.
1. Slowly, the user goes into a state of acceptance. (almost happiness, but more acceptance of everything going on in their life.)
2. They will want to do any work that needs to be done. Such as homework, writing, cleaning... (the list goes on.)
3. After the main (positive) effects begin to wear off, the user will become confused, and moody. They will want to talk to people, about anything and everything that comes into thir mind. Also, they get a buzzing feeling all over their body, like when an arm or a leg "falls asleep." (it's not patucularly pleasant, but not horribly uncomfortable either.)
4. Sleep is out of the question, and the user will feel a sense of inner restlessness, and body aches. (sometimes accompanied with nausea or painful headaches.)
5. After everything is over, they will feel depressed, and tired. For a while, maybe even a few days.

--Ritalin is HIGHLY addictive, and taking too much will cause a dependency almost instantly! Be careful around this stuff! And if you don't plan on going thru a horrible addiction, then don't take it!--
