e-beach said:Just occurred to me, maybe you already thought about it. I think the caffeine thing depends on the height of the ride you want.
I've done 6 to 8 cups of coffee per day as a way to concentrate at work, and I have done months where I have not done any caffeine at all. It is a far less exciting way to go, no caffeine, but I was on a much more even keel through out the day.
It's not like that for me. I just want an effective dose. That effective dose grows ~50% each day, and stays in my system for over 16 hours. Having a low CYP1A2 enzyme production is partially responsible for this. Rutecarpine is a hack to slow this rapid gain of tolerance, and the sleepless nights near the end of the week that accompany it.
