How long should the effects of a 200mg caffeine pill last? I think my tolerance is high. I have between 400-600mg a day.
I rarely ever have caffeine, but today I took a caffeine pill. Could this have caused overdose for my body or am I just super sensitive to caffeine?
I took 1 pill of Vivarin (caffeine) 1hr ago & never felt the effects. It recommends takin 1 every 3-4 hours can I take another 1? How can I keep awake?
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.

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.

Green tea 'pills' are a product that will in no way lead you to any real or sustained weight loss. I would advise that you not waste your money on this product. ...Read more
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
