  • Oh hell no. I tried a NoDoz in college when I was studying for a Final and I almost had a breakdown. My heart beat too fast and I got shaky and nervous. NEVER AGAIN!

  • I get up and move around. The no doz and caffeine doesn't work for me

  • occassionally, but there are weeks at a time when i live on 5hr energys and coffee! i did go for about 3 months taking a supplement called Farenheit everyday...technically it was a diet pill, but i gave me tons of energy and no bad side effects (with the bonus of losing almost 30lbs, which was not my intention but was a greatly appreciated side effect). sadly, it had ephedrine in it so its illegal now :(
