Would caffeine increase Adderall tolerance? Since have grant similar effects?

Would caffeine increase Adderall tolerance? Since have grant similar effects?

Both stimulants: Caffiene and psycho stimulants have similar effects raising heart rate/blood pressure, helping people feel more focused but potentially interfering with sleep. Psychostimulants are prescribed to treat attention deficit disorder with or without hyperactivity. Caffeine + meds are additive. Too much can make people feel irritable, agitated with GI upset (nausea). See how it affects you.

Can taking the nootropic "piracetam" + a stimulant (caffeine, adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine)...) lead to excitotoxicity? If so, can it be averted with increasing choline?

Can taking the nootropic "piracetam" + a stimulant (caffeine, adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine)...) lead to excitotoxicity? If so, can it be averted with increasing choline?

Very little data: I have had some experience with piracetam use among grad school students and haven't seen this tho use with Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) I discouraged b/c state-dependent learning. I doubt that choline would help. Perhaps other colleagues have additional clinical impressions.

Can you tell me if I could use ephedrine/caffeine to stretch my Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) script?

No: The reason that you have to go to a doctor and get a prescription for adderal is because it requires the medical knowledge of a health professional to use it safely. Ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) has been banned in the us because of its toxicity, and neither Ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) nor caffeine are substitutes for your medication. Don't play doctor, and take your medication as prescribed. If trouble paying, talk to md-there is help.

What will happen if you combine adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) caffeine, & yohimbine?

What will happen if you combine adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) caffeine, & yohimbine?

Not good!: Bad combination to combine all 3 together. Discuss this with your doctor first. It's possible playing with a disaster in the making as each drug alone has a high side effect profile, and caffeine in itself acts like a drug. Would not advise doing it.

Undetermined: At federal level - marijuana is still illegal. At state level - legalized in some, not so in others. Therefore, physicians at this time are legally bound to not recommend marijuana for routine use. More importantly, marijuana has not been studied for treatment of chronic pain and we do not know if it truly helps. Jury is still Out there..

Help please! Is Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) stronger than caffiene?

Help please! Is Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) stronger than caffiene?

Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine): Short answer, yes. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is effectively amphetamine which is much stronger and longer lasting than caffeine. Caffeine blocks Adenosine receptor. Adenosine is technically a signal to sedate, so blocking causes alertness but milder impact.

How does nodoz compare to Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) as a study aid in its effectiveness?

Not very well: Nodoz is caffeine. Caffeine, like Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) (amphetamines), is a stimulant. However, it is a much weaker stimulant and has more effects on the heart rate and blood pressure. Having said that, it is not recommended, nor is it safe, to use Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) as a study aid. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) should only be used as a prescription medicine prescribed by your doctor for attention deficit or narcolepsy.
