Methylin is a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant used to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It is also used to treat insomnia, a sleep disorder in which a person is unable to fall asleep or remain asleep. Since Methylin is a stimulant that alters chemicals in the CNS, it has the potential to be misused. CNS stimulants are widely misused by college students as a study drug due to the increase in brain activity, such as increased alertness and ability to focus.

Methylin Signs, Symptoms, and Side Effects

If someone takes Methylin as prescribed by a medical professional, the risk for misuse and side effects is low. However, many people take Methylin recreationally (college students for studying) and they have a much greater risk for substance misuse and addiction. A person who has problems with weight control may also take Methylin to suppress their appetite, leading to weight loss.

Methylin has similar effects to cocaine and amphetamine, which explains why the drug is misused so often. Someone may crush it and snort it or mix it with small amounts of water for injection. If a person stops taking Methylin abruptly after heavy or long-term use, withdrawal symptoms are likely to happen.

Some withdrawal symptoms of Methylin might include:

  • Panic attacks
  • Severe tiredness
  • Irritability
  • Psychosis
  • A boost in appetite (extreme hunger)
  • Nightmares
  • Depression
Methylin Signs, Symptoms, and Side Effects
One of the biggest changes someone might notice after long-term Methylin use is personality changes. The medication typically puts a person in a much better mood due to its stimulating effects. Once Methylin is no longer in their system, dramatic mood swings can happen. A person struggling with Methylin substance use disorder may experience severe depression and decreased motivation, which often leads to recurring use.
