Thanks for the history lesson CE!

The amphetamines are more powerful dopamine enhancers. But also more toxic in higher doses.

The dose-response curve of methylphenidate (Ritalin, etc.) flattens. It's not meaningful to take more than about 108 mg/dose of Concerta because higher doses provide little (if any) more effect. I forgot... can someone convert the dose of Concerta to Ritalin IR?

Interesting! It's also called racemic amphetamine, to distinguish it from pure d-amphetamine. It was once sold as Benzedrine.

> rarely, there's methamphetamine, Desoxyn.

Once marketed as Methedrine.
