Best pick-me-up: 10mg Parnate or cup of coffee ?

Posted by Don_Bristol on October 12, 2006, at 0:02:59

I am not looking for a debate on morality and ethics. Heh! But I would like to ask this question.

Which is best as a pick-me-up to help stay awake for a person who is not taking any medication and who is drinking an "average" amount of coffee each day:

(a) 10mg Parnate
(b) one or two cups of strong coffee


Let me explain the situation. I take 50mg Parnate and it is being increased to 60 mg.

Recently I have not taken my last dose of Parnate until early evening. Maybe it's this late dosing or maybe it's the extra 10mg but I stay awake well past my bedtime. It's as if I have been drinking coffee.

Sometimes this boost is actually very welcome and helps me to get things done which have been piling up.

I was thinking of letting my girlfriend try 10mg when she is next struggling to stay up late to finish a task.

So the question is, which the best pick-me-up for her?


Thank you for any views or if you can remember what it was like starting 10mg Parnate better than I can!
