From this study (4 years ago):
Here's a what I take of Focalin XR 30mg and Methylin 10mg(with docs. permission cut in half, so I'm really taking 5mg around 340 and 5mg around)
Focalin: first few hours: dislike it, hyperactive, worse spaceyness and really forgetful. eaily irritated/distracted
hour 5 or 6: love it all bad effects gone, focused, motivated, but a tiny bit spacy and forgetful still. Plus still a bit irritable
Soon after starting methylin I got a UTI, focalin seems to make the uhh..urgency worse..(but it might not be, just what i think)
Maybe later I'll write more about everything else(kinda tired now..)
