    It didn't work at all for me. Then again, I take in so much caffeine that maybe it takes a lot more than that to have any effect.

    Its just caffine in tablet form. Don't get attached to it

    you can build up resistance. Like, if you didn't have any caffine for a week or two, and then downed three espresso's your head would feel rather fluffy. At least mine does sometimes lol

    It's okay to take in "emergencies" - e.g. when you've got coursework to be in the next day and you need to focus, you're going to work and haven't slept all night, etc... I don't think the odd few are unhealthy but you can get in the habit of taking it all the time which I'm pretty sure is bad for you (it's concentrated caffiene after all).

    That was my point. Three espressos is nothing.

    I used them once for a week (well 8 in 2 days then 2 in the morning of the remaining days to wake up) but noticed myself feeling dependant on them and them so I stopped, while I was making an effort to stop my housemates noticed how irritable and shakey I was. so yes they worked for me when doin overnight work but they do have adverse effects

    You'd be better off just getting a proper nights sleep.

    Well, that isn't always viable.

    I suffer bad insomnia, and I find that during the day, it keeps me alive. I would've liked to sleep. But some things just don't work.

    I find proplus and energy drinks to be far more effective than lots of coffee. If I try to drink lots of coffee I just find myself getting rather acquainted with the bog :rolleyes:

    Dont recommend it for studying - because you wont feel the energy boost and it just means you cant go to sleep. Also too much can mess u up so badly-sleeping patterns etc

    Stick to energy drinks purdeys/redbull etc when studying.

    Took it for 4 days on the trot along with quite a bit of ibuprofen. Was fine at the time but a few days afterwards were a bit of a blur.
