A really helpful thread re Schedule II vs Schedule III drugs was just in another thread. It identified the following as Schedule III (read:less illegal than add. and rit.) stimulants:

Benzphetamine
Chlorphentermine
Clortermine
Phendimetrazine

Any experience with/thoughts on these? I have never looked into them but am curious.

Interesting...

I did a cursory wiki search on the medications you mentioned. They are all listed openly as being either closely related to amphetamines, precursor prodrugs to amphetamines, or having the same effects as amphetamines. Why these are Schedule III is a mystery to me. Seems like you'd have to play with the dosages, but they should potentially have the same systemic effects as Adderall.

@Ms. Lab Rat,

I've always wondered why Ritalin is commonly available through IOPs when other not-to-be-mentioned Schedule II substances are never offered (at least not in the official catalogue, and not in my short experience browsing IOP product catalogues). Is Ritalin not considered as hardcore outside of the US?

one reason might be because ritalin is more widespread and common in the world. for example i live in Turkey and we don't have the other adhd meds here, we only have ritalin.

Ritalin is "structurally similar" to amphetamines, while Adderall is just straight up amphetamines with a fancy brand-name.

Why buy it off the street, when you can get pharmaceutical-grade crystal meth from a psychiatrist? lol...

There was probably some shady stuff going on between the pharma companies and the FDA to get Adderall approved for use in ADHD patients. Especially since ADHD is considered by more than a few people in the medical community to be a bogus diagnosis.
