Hi Jost

I tend to think coffee is not greatly stimulating and can be short lived. There is a good article called

"Actions of Caffeine in the Brain with Special Reference to Factors That Contribute to Its Widespread Use"

>> Therefore it can probably be concluded that caffeine in doses that correspond to a few cups of coffe "improves behavioral routine and speed rather than cognitive functions" <<

I kind of felt that 10mg to someone not used to it would be mildly stimulating. I havebeen on 50mg for a year and adding 10mg makes a difference.

This is exactly why I think Parnate may be a better stimulant than coffee.

Yes. I too take 3 or 4 at a time. Why did you stop Parnate?
