thanks all who replied. It was definately an interesting experience, though I'm not so sure I would recommend it. It did reveal however some interesting results which served mostly to confirm my growing suspicions about the efficacy of the Concerta for my ADHD. I started a trial of Conerta after being forced to quit Adderall a couple of months ago. Before the Adderall I had been taking Ritalin for about 3 years. However, when I started the Concerta last month I had a lot of difficulty describing the how it felt. I had a sneaking suspicion that I was taking too much, as I felt very sedated, cognitively impaired, and very "weird" to use the technical term. So my experiment was to try the weed (for the first time in five years and compare its effects to howI felt on the Concerta. I hypothesized that since symptoms of too much stimulents (i.e. tingly, over-sensitivity to sorroundings, time distortion, lethargy) were somewhat similar to the effects of weed (at least sometimes), it would enable me to identify if I was taking too much Concerta if it felt very similar. Of course, I foolishly forgot not to take the concerta, and thus experienced the weed and the concerta at the same time. Kind of hard to seperate out the effects, right. Despite that confound, I stopped the concerta today, and picked up Focalin. Anybody know what the heck it is?

Well, that is a crude summary of my motivation for my recent self-experiment.
