Caffeine Overdose?

Last week, Friday i took 3 Jet-Alert Caffeine pills.
I was incredibly energetic, and i felt quite good. later on in the evening, my heart started racing.. all I can say is that friday night was nothing short of hellish. saturday, i wasn't feeling well either but not as bad. today it'll be a week since i've taken them, when i feel my heart it still seems like it's beating to fast, is it just me worrying myself, which in turn makes my heart beat faster? or did I damage my heart? shouldn't the caffeine be out of my system?

Jet-Alert, supposed to have 200mg's per tablet. I took 3 of them, so it was like drinking 6 cups of coffee. am I going to be alright? should I see a doctor?

my body also doesn't feel quite stable, is it going through withdrawl (withdrawal)? I don't usually drink coffee and I used to have 1 soda a day, i've been staying away from caffeine.
It was also my first time taking caffeine tablets, and I did it to feel ''hyper and energized''

I'm 14, I weigh 133-135 pounds about 62Kg's.

It is probably just you worrying your self.  it should be out of your system by now.


or did I damage my heart?

You did not damage your heart with caffeine pills -- but don't do it again.  Everything in moderation -- you are better off having a diet coke or diet mountaindew than taking caffeine pills.

shouldn't the caffeine be out of my system?

yes

am I going to be alright? should I see a doctor?

You probably just scared yourself.  I can't really judge as to whether you should see a doctor over the internet.  If you don't feel well, talk to a doctor.  It would be very, very unlikely that you could do an damage with doing this once.


is it going through withdrawal?

no, it takes longer than that to build up a tolerance.

Please don't take caffeine pills.  Nothing good can come from it.

Thanks for posting.
