Caffeine Fix

We sell this stuff at the C-Store.

Amongst the Pepto and Nyquil required to recover from your basic college aches and pains, I saw for the first time today a box of caffeine pills called No Doz. Upon further research, there doesn't seem to be anything particularly wrong with the caffeine pills. Half to one whole pill is equivalent to a cup of coffee, (or probably a Yerba Maté at Café Viv). Side effects can include nausea, dizziness, nervousness, and irritability. Additionally, too much caffeine can irritate the stomach lining and cause increased urination. 

It's only the first week of class though, so hopefully you can put off using No Doz until at least March.

Is this part of a University plot to decrease Adderall (ab)use on campus? More on this later.
