    Hi, what dosage would you recommend? Like how many mg of caffeine + mg of L theanine to produce similar effects to adderall?

      Hi Jenny, thanks for taking the time to comment!

      The answer to your question depends largely upon your tolerance to caffeine, I think, and your biological makeup in general. As a quick disclaimer, I doubt any amount of caffeine + L-theanine would be able to fully replicate the effects of Adderall, but judging from the way you phrased your question I think you already knew that.

      If you have an average to high tolerance to caffeine, I’d recommend starting off with 100-150mg of caffeine and double the amount of L-theanine. Definitely start at the lower end of what you think you can handle and work your way up. I personally find that too-much-caffeine feeling to be unbearable. You know your body best. Definitely experiment and play around with different ratios. Everybody’s different. Some people I know prefer a 4:1 ratio and others a 1:1 ratio. You probably won’t achieve that Adderall-like feeling you’re interested in on your first try, but just keep modifying until you can hopefully produce it.

      Back in college, I used to drink a lot of coffee so I had a pretty high tolerance. Whenever I had morning classes, I’d wakeup and immediately take 100mg of caffeine with 200mg of L-theanine. This worked like a charm for about 1-2 years, but then I suddenly became overly sensitive to caffeine. Nowadays, if I’m consuming caffeine, I tend to take 25mg when I wake up and 25mg about 20 min. later with 200-400mg of L-theanine.

      So I guess to sum up–start off with 100mg of caffeine and 200mg of L-theanine. Then, if that’s not enough stimulation for ya, work your way up in 25-50mg increments of caffeine. Once you find the caffeine dosage that’s optimal for you, you can start playing around with varying amounts of L-theanine for different effects. It’s all pretty subtle when it comes to the L-theanine, IMO, although there’s definitely a synergistic effect. Don’t expect anything too drastic when increasing or lowering the dosage, but experiment so you can find your sweet spot. As always, your mileage may vary. Have fun!
