People with ADHD have the opposite reaction to stimulants that the normal population does. It follows that coffee would also have the opposite effect. Never seen any studies on this though. It also could be that you just developed a tolerance to coffee, kept very late nights and on about the 5th cup, your body just said - I'm tired!
Stay away from Diet sodas of any type. The phenalatronics (spelling?) in them affects brain function in ADD'rs. I get all weird after drinking them too... Caffine is a stimulant and if you are taking a stimulant, adding more stimulant will put you to sleep. Like taking too much of the Adderall (adderrall). At least that's what happens to me...
I have ADD and I can't take anymore stimulates I think I have reached my top point. If I take them now I have an anxiety attack. So I need medication like Zoloft to calm me down. And I take medication to sleep to. Its like something whiched in my brain. Because stimulates use to calm me. But not anymore. It started when I took Fluticasone nasal spray for allergies and it stimulated me to much! If you or anyone else knows about this and can help email me at shagan_13***@**** thanks. And for the coffee and Adderall (adderrall) be careful Adderall (adderrall) is very strong stuff!
