Question Caffeine and ADHD

I have a few questions that are important for me:

How does taking multiple high dosages (300-600 mg a day) of caffeine affect you? What side effects do you experience on that much caffeine? How do you feel if you take 300-600 mg caffeine a day (by drinking alot of coffee for example?). Does the caffeine treat ADD or ADHD?

Very important question:
Can you experience a crash after taking caffeine???

Thanks alot!

No, it doesnt treat
I was drinking lots of coffee before being diagnosed
Still drinking with medicine
No difference
Just love the taste
