Is it bad to drink caffeinated drinks if you are having diarrhoea? Also, what foods should I be avoiding in this case?

Caffeine = stimulant: Caffeine will 'revv up' the bowels - so if you're already having diarrhea, it's not really a good idea. Better to stick to foods like chicken soup that have fluid and some salt -- both things you are losing with diarrhea. A 'simple' diet is probably best -- rice, toast, bananas so that you give your GI tract a break. Diarrhea is good in a way - you're getting rid of toxic stuff. Feel better! ...Read more

Is it bad to drink 2-3 alcoholic drinks everynight while taking Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) in the morning.?

Is it bad to drink 2-3 alcoholic drinks everynight while taking Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) in the morning.?

Whoa!: Alcohol disrupts sleep, so does vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). Sleep is essential for proper brain function.
