I find that amphetamine-like stimulants can be calming, whereas methylphenidate (cocaine-like) is always stimulating.

My first dose of phenylethylamine (PEA) during selegiline treatment was amazing. It squelched the "silent buzz" in my mind, allowing me to focus all of my attention outwards, in turn allowing me to remember what I saw and heard. If I hadn't been watching the TV news, I might have fallen asleep. If it can enhance experience of wakefulness, why not sleep as well?

The PEA effect described above was short-lived. With further use, PEA took on purely stimulating effects. I'm sure this might happen with amphetamines too, but perhaps not as soon as with PEA, due to the very short half-life of the latter.
