    If they don't work there's always Modafinil :p:

    I don't like pro plus. It gives me palpitations and makes me feel a bit shaky

    But then I never have caffeine, so it's probably just my body not being used to it :p:
    I'm fine if I take one, but more than that and I'm like you. However if I team it with dextrose tablets - I get extremely restless and annoying.

    Really not enjoying clinical placement atm So little structure, so much of feeling like a spare part. I feel I'm doing nothing, and learning very little.

    Made up my mind about intercalating though - I'm gonna do it

    What makes you say that?

    The type of Bsc I'm interested in is a year-long research project of my choice, probably in Cardiovascular Sciences or Infection/Immunology. I feel myself being drawn towards academic medicine (possibly due to not enjoying clinical placements so far?), and think this would be a good way of sampling it. Also a chance to present at conferences, win prizes and a couple of previous students have had their work published. However I would be doing it between 4th and final year

    I felt like that in 3rd year. But now im kind of left to my own devices. I get into clinics, get chatting to registrars/foundation doctors, find myself on ward rounds and doing things i didnt think of. I like having no structure, i make my own structure. Cant you ask to do things? Im a bugger for asking questions.

    Although to be honest im actually sick of hospital medicine at the minute and have no motivation. Ive just been doing what im going to be doing for a foundation job (minus the on calls) and to be honest theres a complete lack of actual medicine and im sick of running round. Maybe the medicine is in the on call part??

    Oh really? The last bit, do you mean they worked for a few weeks then lost their efficacy?

    Indeed. Hence why I wanted to know if pro plus pills worked on people that coffee no longer did :x

    But yeah for a week it's amazing, although your heart will be racing/ you'll be sweaty / you'll have shaky hands.

    I.e. sympathetic drive gone crazy

    I ate mould accidentally earlier, and for a while I've had awful abdominal pain. Like the type in food poisoning. Sucky. Never known that to happen before after just eating mouldy bread.

    Pfft. I lived in a house last year and halls this year. I prefer life away from halls easily.
