Well the first day I took methylphenidate I was wired and decided that I must CLEAN ALL THE THINGS. The euphoric/wired feeling that stimulants give subsides as your body gets used to them.

Also, seems odd that the XR took so long to work. Had a similar problem with a certain type of generic extended release methylphenidate (didn’t release at all). If the XR lasts too long/causes insomnia, ask the doc about the IR.
