Caffeine Pills And Ritalin
Additive Effects: Ritalin (generic methylphenidate) and caffeine are both psychostimulants. Ritalin is indicated in the treatment of attention deficit disorder. Caffeine is often consumed to enhance mental clarity and to combat sleepiness. Both have similar side effects including potential for insomnia and heightened anxiety. Since it is difficult to accurately dose caffeine, using both is discouraged. ...Read more
How much caffeine is act like ritalin (methylphenidate) 10 for adhd? Or what is a good not prescription drug which is ritalin (methylphenidate) alternative? Thank you
Maybe, if...: ... you're a lab rat being given huge doses. No evidence caffeine is "neurotoxic" in us. "Neurotoxicity" used as you are using it is like saying your car has "engine trouble": It's meaningless without a specific definition. Which nerves? We have a lot of different kinds. Timeline? Permanent or temporary? What is specific pathology? There are all kinds of qualifiers. ...Read more
For what goals? This: Is the far more important issue. Both promoted for symptoms; cure nothing, may promote other problems, especially if used frequently. Additionally there are so many individual differences + no organized prospective placebo controlled or comparative trails of any sizable group on which to base an answer. Thus usual self-experimentation/buyer-beware. Rec: Google: "sources of caffeine in nature". ...Read more
Caffeine from natural sources- coffee, teas, dark chocolate- is probably good for health in general. Caffeine, however, is not designed to treat fatigue or sleepiness or any other condition.
Not a fan of soda (diet or regular) or caffeine pills. They won't address the cause.
My general approach would be, after a good medical eval from pcp, to test neurotransmitters and adrenal function. ...Read more
Frauds in Medicine: You are very young so there may not be any medical or health consequences to this. But, there also will be no health benefits.

I have gymnastics training 12 times/week, but can't keep up. Too tired. Is it ok to take caffeine pills to boost workout?
No: The goal is to do it all the natural way. Healthy, natural foods, drinks, and habits. Avoid pills, supplements, etc... unless there is a deficiency of something. Thus, one can see a primary care doctor to check for the cause of tiredness. That is to make sure there is not a medical problem, such as a sleep disorder (where one seems to be sleeping but is not resting his brain), or other issues. ...Read more

Prescription?: Is this a prescription dosage? If so, talk with your doctor regarding side effects and drug interactions.

Don't Bother: Taking 30mg of Ritalin (methylphenidate) will do little except increase your heart rate, elevate your blood pressure, and will not give a "high". Taking these kind of medicines without your physicians approval can be dangerous and should never be done. I list the mild effects, but long term use can lead to paranoid schizophrenic reaction that is very difficult to treat, don't bother trying! ...Read more
