Caffeine is mildly effective on adults with ADHD, but nowhere near as effective as prescription medications. It should be avoided for children and teens.

ADHD is a FAKE condition made up  a law breaking drug company! Because they had come up with a new drug and could not find an honest use for it! So they made this one Up!

If you are on it, get rid of it!

Are you having, feeling, anything other than the drugs side effects?

Caffeine has not been approved to treat ADHD, nor has it been proven to have any dramatic effects on focus or attention. Caffeine is a very mild stimulant and it belongs to the same class of drugs (psychostimulants) that are commonly used to treat ADHD such as amphetamine or methylphenidate. There have been theories that many people with ADHD benefit more from caffeine and it may be an attempt to self-medicate (similar to the higher proportion of individuals with ADHD that smoke tobacco which contains nicotine); treating ADHD with caffeine is not recommended.

No. ADHD is not connected with moon phases; however, behavior changes have been reported during different moon phases.

Energy drinks are very high in caffeine. Caffeine tends to make people with ADHD feel more alert and calm, rather than jittery, as high doses of caffeine make other people feel.
