Since I don't drink coffee, it never agreed with me. I was used to being helped by the old Vivarin (changed since early or mid 90's) and now...the oldest that I know of over the counter, ..No-Doz.
I, at one time, thought it so inferior to V, but now that it has been changed, I realize daily that it did help some.
The very little it helped is sorely missed. Guess the two companies that purchased and changed these two life lines do not need my business.

You can get generic 200 mg. caffeine tablets (same as No-Doz or Vivarin) over-the-counter at your friendly neighborhood chain drug store (or, probably, Wal-Mart). Ask the pharmacist where to find them.

I have also tried B-12 vitamins which help a little bit, but you have to keep increasing the dosage and that isn't any good either. Face it you have to have prescription medication eventhough it is very expensive.
