Smoking and drinking caffeine are both ways to self-medicate. I used to do both before starting Ritalin about five years ago. Now if my meds are right and I do drink caffeine I get jittery as it just ups my level of stimulant in my body. As I mentioned in a previous post I've lost 15 pounds since starting strattera about six weeks ago. :-) I'm still on some Concerta though so I haven't tried drinking diet coke with it yet. My hope is the opposite of yours, that by going on Strattera and off Concerta/stimulants I WILL be able to drink Diet Coke again, along with taking Exederin and Sudafed that both have stimulants in them. We'll see what happens!
