I sometimes had sleepiness/lethargy upon discontinuation of cocaine-like stimulants, lasting a day or two, but nothing like the prolonged aftermath of phenylethylamine (ampehtamine-like) abuse.

I experimented with intranasal ethylphenidate [EPH] (very similar to methylphenidate [MPH]), but found it was too hard on the nose, and any improved high (I don't remember) was certainly not enough to be worth even occasional use through this route. Perhaps I had the free base of EPH, or a salt other than the HCl? Alternatively, EPH is more offensive to the nasal mucosa than MPH.

That is my experience too with benzos. I'm thinking that those people using them heavily and chronically are self-medicating for anxiety and/or other consequences of excessive stimulatory (such as from glutamate) neurotransmission. Then again, back when I did have anxiety, benzos didn't help. They worked for insomnia, but the quality of the sleep they induced was next to worthless.
