Sodas don't do it, even caffeinated ones, but coffee sure does. Anyone else?

I've heard that it can make some people with ADHD tired
IDK if it does that to me or not

Coffee makes me disgusted, does that count? *Shots fired*

When do you usually drink coffee? I feel tired if I drink it at night.

It happens to me too.

I have heard it's a symptom of ADHD, but I have been tested and do not have it. Everyone's bodies are different and react to caffeine in different ways. Coffee makes me tired, however, sodas and certain teas do not.

I don't think it's much of an issue to people? I'm in no way an expert. xD

There are some who react that way.

I feel I should throw out there, though, that the caffeine/ADHD thing is a placebo-fueled myth. ^^; Yes, most ADHD meds are stimulants. I've talked with doctors about it though, and they've said that caffeine doesn't work the same way, and studies don't show a difference between caffeine and placebo.

I’ve fallen asleep after drinking coffee in the morning and woke up about 15 minutes later felling like I had way too much energy in a sudden surge.

The coffee thing is not a myth with ADHD
I have ADHD and I can't have coffee because it makes me to sleepy I have to have some kind of tea or something that's not caffeinated the reason why is BecuAse since the brain cells are a bit different in my brain due to ADHD the caffeine has a reverse affect

It makes my heart rate increase-- but the fact it's warm, delicious and overall comforting means I could see it being sleep inducing! :)

Wow, I'm glad to see that so many people are backing up my statement!!
WOOOO I feel so smart

Lol XD

If I don’t have coffee I can’t start my day

I act so different with and without my meds XD
