    Caffeine doesn't give you energy, it blocks the tiredness signal. If your glucose supply has flagged, you'll still be worn out. And if you have ADD, it can trigger the tiredness signal instead.

      I may have ADD, I sometimes drink it before bed to sleep. Other times I drink it for energy, maybe my ADD comes and goes. THe weird thing is I can sort of control the response based on mindset.

      The coffee and ADHD thing is a myth. Some people do get tired from caffeine, but it's unrelated to ADHD, and certainly most ADHD people react normally to caffeine.

          Conflicted here, I have ADHD. Meds like dexamphetamine and ritalin make me tired and slack, but so does caffeine, Molly/MDA, MDMA and energy drinks. On the plus side, people with ADHD can typically drink alcohol nonstop for days on end and only fall asleep when their body finally gives up shuts down.

          DMAA in pre-workout supplements were the only stimulant that was actually a stimulant for me. blog post over.

              I drink from friday to sunday, sometimes monday morning without sleeping fueled purely by cheap vodka, goon sacks and port wine. I find alcohol to be incredibly energising, and on the last day I will walk around like a literal zombie in blacked out state while binging. it's the ecstasy and methamphetamine of the ADHD people.

                Also, I have ADHD and alcohol makes me incredibly tired and gives me a headache. I hate alcohol, even two drinks is enough to make my head immediately start pounding and make me want to go immediately to sleep. Drinking in the morning or afternoon like at a boozy brunch would completely ruin my entire day and make me feel like shit. I have never been able to enjoy alcohol no matter how much I tried.

            I have ADHD and stimulants are stimulating to me. Caffeine, ephedrine, and amphetamines all affect me normally. They give me energy and focus. It's a lie that people with ADHD get "calmed down" by stimulants in a way that's opposite to normal people. Low dose amphetamines affect everyone the same, they give you more focus and make you better at sitting down and enjoying doing a boring task for a long time. That's why literally every kid in college (in certain programs) takes Adderall for studying at exam time. They only tell you that they affect ADHD people differently because they want to fool you and discourage you from using it if you don't need it.

            Imagine if they told you that Testosterone injections only make women grow big muscles, but if you are a normal man then testosterone injections would make you lose muscles. That's basically the tier of absurd lie they are perpetrating on you.

              I think you're full of shit or were misdiagnosed then. Stimulants absolutely do drain your energy if you have ADHD.

              I bet you don't even lay in bed for 3 hours every night trying to sleep while rubbing your feet real fast on the bed to expend leftover energy, homosexual.

                >Stimulants are an effective way of managing ADHD symptoms, such as short attention span, impulsive behavior, and hyperactivity. These drugs improve ADHD symptoms in about 70% of adults and 70–80% of children. They tend to reduce interruptive behavior, fidgeting, and other hyperactive symptoms.

                That's because they stimulate you and make you more alert and able to focus, not because they make you tired.

                Your entire argument (and accusations that I must have been misdiagnosed for understanding this better than you) hinges on the false idea that people with and without ADHD respond to stimulants in a different way which I have already shown you is not true.
                >For years, it was assumed that stimulants had paradoxical calming effects in ADHD patients, whereas stimulating ‘normal’ individuals and producing locomotor activation in rats. It is now known that low doses of stimulants focus attention and improve executive function in both normal and ADHD subjects

                It's literally impossible to know whether or not someone has ADHD based on their reaction to amphetamines. All people respond the same way.

                There's also no such thing as being "misdiagnosed" because ADHD is defined by symptoms and behavior, it's not a genetic brain condition like schizophrenia. If a kid has interruptive behavior and hyperactive symptoms in school because he's a spoiled butthole (and hypothetically wouldn't have those symptoms if he had been raised better) that doesn't matter for the diagnosis, he still has ADHD and would experience therapeutic benefit by amphetamines exactly the same in both cases.

You were right earlier though, I don't read shit, I just go by the first few sentences and my mind fills everything else in.

      it has 2kcal per 250ml. so it's basically the same as drinking a glass of water with a sprinkle of lemon juice. the caffeine is obviously the only thing that does something to your body. which only makes your heart beat a bit faster. so you can feel a bit more awake. but the effect is so moderate that for some people it doesn't do anything at all. also taking too much of it only makes your condition worse.

    OP, have you ever had trouble with other medications? You might be a "CYP450 superfast metabolizer" like I am. For an unknown reason, my liver cranks out enzymes in the cytochrome P450 complex like fricking mad. Around two thirds of all drugs are completely useless to me, including caffeine, calcium-channel blockers, SSRIs, and doxycycline.

    It's been useful to me exactly once in my life, when a piece of shit "friend" tried to drug me and rob me. Other than that one time, it's meant continual fights with physicians who refuse to listen to the stupid patient who keeps insisting that the drug isn't working and that they need to switch to something that isn't liver-metabolized. Frankly I usually have to just go through the list of what's available, pick something out, and get it mail-ordered from Mexico.

      Interesting, have you ever tried boofing it? Not a joke, but if you shove drugs up your ass it goes straight into your blood and bypasses the liver. I don't recommend this for regular use, but if you're curious about how caffeine feels for normal people you can probably get a nodoz tablet and shove it up your ass just to experience it once.

    The thing with caffeine is this: it's not amphetamine and never was. Couple of hundred mg is not that much for any adult especially for those who drink coffee (or energy drinks) every day. Even just a morning coffee will dull the response in the long run.
    No need for extra special diagnoses or snowflake theories here.

    Here:
    >Go to bed and wake up at the same times each day (this is much more important than getting 8 hours)
    >Don't view bright lights at night; use Flux or the equivalent on all of your devices and buy dimmable warm colored lamps/light bulbs for use in the evening
    >DO view sunlight during the day, especially in the morning. Everyone knows about #2 but this is the other side of the coin and is equally or more important. When you wake up in the morning, go outside and look at the sky for at least 15 minutes
    >go to your local LabCorp and get a vitamin deficiency test, then correct whatever vitamin deficiency you have (probably D and Folate)
