Re: Coffee - before or after Adderall?

I eat and drink whatever I want �� and don’t notice an effect on Adderall. If I don’t eat anything I feel crappy, that’s for sure.

I agree with Little Missy that maybe there is some over analyzing of this whole thing with when to take the drugs etc.....you’ve been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD right.? As a person who has ADHD Adderall helps me function normally period, not just for certain tasks like work...

Re: Coffee - before or after Adderall?

I always take my meds the minute I come downstairs and brew the coffee and have the coffee within 10 minutes of taking my meds. I dont know that I have noticed anything but I have been a coffee person my whole life. I used to be able to drink pots of it, but now after the morning I cant have anymore or it makes me very jittery.

Sure, if I had an unlimited supply of Adderall or Ritalin I wouldn't had mind wasting one dose on the morning routines.
Ever considered an xr/ir combo?

Was on 90mg Ritalin and 30mg Ritalin felt so much stronger than 30mg Adderall. Maybe it's because Ritalin isn't effected by food.
going to try the lemon juice to give it a last try, maybe even taking it an hour before coffee just to see if it's interfering with the Adderall.

It's similar to apple cider vinegar in the regard once metabolized it raises the ph in your stomach even though it's acidic. I tend to take ACV or lemon water before bed so when I wake up my ph is more alkaline than it would be had I not.

In the grand scheme of things a couple cups of coffee aren't going to lessen the effects of adderall all that drastically. People over hype it a tad, but there is truth to it.

Re: Coffee - before or after Adderall?

I used to be Adderall but I now take Ritalin. The only thing that happened to me if I had a caffeinated drink while on my medication was that it made me jittery. It didn't give my brain a boost nor did it give me any energy. When on these medications water is your best friend though sometimes I substitute Gatorade .

Re: Coffee - before or after Adderall?

I find coffee to be a great booster for a first dose. For one, good coffee can be good for you. Also its important to remember that low stomach acid is just as bad as high.

Re: Coffee - before or after Adderall?

Anyone that is worried about the acidity of their stomach should consider taking calcium carbonate i.e Tums antacids that I personally find quite tasty. They will at the very least negate any effects of any high acid level in stomach on absorption of Adderall.

What people should be way more interested in is whether the effects of caffeine on dopamine and norepinephrine receptors - as mild as they may be by themselves - have a positive or negative influence on the positive effects one hop s to obtain from Adderall.

But lemon juice on its own will work fine. But at least stick with it for a few days before judging its overall effect.
My doctor warned me that citric acid will counteract the benefits of the Vyvanse I take. If I drink my coffee and then the water with lemon juice, am I ok there?
