Can I drink Advocate spark energy drink mix which contains vitamin and amino acid supplement with being on Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine)?

Caffeine caution: From what I found, there is 120 mg of caffeine in an 8 oz. Spark energy drink, which is similar to amount in 8 oz of coffee. Too much caffeine can increase heart rate, raise blood pressure, anxiety and cause insomnia. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) has similar side effects. Monitor your caffeine content especially while taking Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). I hope this helps. Best wishes. ...Read more

Lack energy & wakefulness.ongoing for past months.coffee,energy drinks, vitamin b no effect. Lot of same during adolescents.blood tests normal. Help?

Many causes...: Fatigue and sleep difficulties have SO many causes (not only physical but also emotional). My advice, stop the artificial attempts to increase energy (they are likely working against you). Drink 1 1/2 liters of water per day. Eat balanced clean diet. Exercise daily. Meditate. See your doctor if your symptoms are not improving to rule out medical causes. ...Read more
