Possible for ADHD meds to cause coffee to have opposite effect on the body? Before ritalin (methylphenidate) and adderall, coffee gave energy but now it's the opposite.
Ritalin (methylphenidate) vs caffeine: Ritalin (methylphenidate) releases Dopamine in the front part of the brain. Caffeine does to a limited degree as well. Now that your Dopamine is being released in greater amounts by Ritalin (methylphenidate) you are unable to feel any effect from the caffeine . Caffeine also has an effect on adenosine. This is our compound in the body that causes us to feel sleepy. What you're feeling is the caffeine crash that occurs after the caffeine wears off and Adenosine has a chance to build up again.Meanwhile Ritalin (methylphenidate) continues to mask any of caffeine's effect on the Dopamine receptors in the frontal part of the brain. Best wishes. ...Read more

Anxiety in ADHD: It is a common sign found in persons with adhd. The intrinsic mechanism is unclear but it may be mediated by the dysregulation of the noradrenergic system which underlies adhd.

I know alzheimer's can be caused by excess dopamine, and ADHD by not enough dopamine... So if i take Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) for adhd, am i at risk of alzheimer's?
