How caffeine affects persons with ADD. I heard opposite opinions, someone said that is useful and the others said that it should be avoided. Is there like a dose of coffee that it is ok to drink?

Caffeine is a mild central nervous system stimulant that is available in a number of beverages like coffee, tea, soft drinks and also as measured dose tablets in over-the-counter products. Caffeine is not as potent as psychostimulant medications like Ritalin, but may be strong enough to help some individuals with milder forms of ADHD/ ADD. Central nervous system stimulants increase levels of the neurotransmitter chemicals dopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin. Depending on its strength, 1 - 8 oz. cup of coffee contains between 40 - 180 mg. of caffeine.
