Yes, in fact I've never seen a caffeine pill that wasn't 100 mg of the active principle.

I've had paradoxical sedative effects of caffeine, especially at higher doses.

As I mentioned in another post (vortioxetine plus caffeine), I need another substance, typically a dopaminergic stimulant, in combination, to allow the caffeine to have a stimulant effect, but apparently vortoxetine can work too.
