I am taking 15 mg of Adderall in the morning but I find that it doesn't make me alert. Coffee does a better job but unfortunately the effects don't last long. I think I am going to ask to be removed from adderall because all it does it make me irritable

Coffee is not good either as it is a stimulant and wears off leaving you feeling just that much lower than before. You could ask about something like Strattera which is a norepinephrine re-uptake inhibitor (it's not the only one but is the one I was put on and did work for me - with lasting results. I couldn't wake up in the mornings and by evenings I was just flat. Strattera woke me up, improved my sleep and gave me energy throughout the day). If you do go that route consider staying on the lower dose. (I was on it for too long and probably too high a dose and crashed but not necessarily due to the Strattera). Just a thought.

All the best,

A "your mileage may vary" statement if there was one.

Yes, that's true. Your mileage may vary! They say two or three (or was it one or two?) coffees a day is beneficial for one's health.

I drink a strong cup of coffee in the morning. Coffee's effect hang around for quite a while and I do NOT crash when the stimulant effects start waning.

I think most people would agree. But when someone is feeling low or agitated it is probably a good idea to limit coffee. In the short term coffee is great but over time and with ever increasing doses, not so much.
