I find that (1) I get little effect either way from caffeine alone, but (2) taken with a cocaine-like stimulant (in my case desoxypipradrol or ethylphenidate) it provides an excellent nootropic boost. I have tried up to 3000 mg of caffeine alone, without any notable benefits, but the worst night of my life due to stomach pains. Whence the complete contrast between (1) and (2)?
