Is ethylphenidate formed with alcohol and levomethylphenidate or is it formed with alcohol and dextromethylphenidate or both? If both does it form more readily with one or another? Is there levo- & dextro- ethylphenidate too? 188.8.131.52 (talk) 05:20, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
- "...whereas the biologically active eutomer d-TMP does not react with ethanol to any significant extent..." 184.108.40.206 (talk) 09:44, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
I have read the article (J.o. Medicinal Chemistry, 2005, Vol. 48, No. 8, page 2876-2881) and the values which are used in the paper  differs from the one in the article. Also in the Article there is no d-TMP mentioned just the racemic mixture of Methylphenidate. Only for Ethylphenidate are there values for both diastereomers and the racemic mixture. In the table is also a comparison with cocaine which is quite interesting. — Preceding unsigned comment added by EfaceX (talk • contribs) 22:24, 14 January 2012 (UTC)
both compounds generalize at 10mg/kg, meaning 700mg dose of TEP for a 70kg adult male would be the same as one of TMP? doesn't 700mg sound a bit lethal?
10mg/kg is still an extreme dose. I have eaten 50mg (0.7mg/kg) and it was very very strong. I don't recommend anyone even that much. You need to clarify that 10mg/kg is not a normal dose. For example Ritalin comes in 5 mg, 10 mg tablets. 70 times less. Stephan823 (talk) 22:22, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
I have removed this because it is potentially misleading and dangerous:
- TEP is less stimulatory than TMP at 5mg/kg, although both compounds generalize at 10mg/kg. This is suggestive of a noradrenergic stimulatory effect present for TMP at lower doses.
Analogue of Ketamine?
How could ethylphenidate be considered an analogue of ketamine under Australian law? They have vaguely similar structures, but they're significantly different structurally and completely different pharmacologically. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Exercisephys (talk • contribs) 04:34, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
Current UK legality
A TCDO does not put the drug in class B under UK law but in a sort of class D - it is illegal to sell or import but not illegal to possess, though if the police do find it in your possession they are allowed to confiscate it and have it destroyed. This is distinct from class A, B and C in UK law which also penalise possession. It is likely that 1 year from the original ban date it will transition to class A, B or C .

The half-life mentioned in the drug infobox isn't cited and is based on 'subjective reports' - I've removed this for now.
