Dissolving Caffeine Pills


#1

Does anyone know if dissolving caffeine (caffeine anhydrous) pills in water or gatorade is ok? I am fairly sure this will just caffinate the water however I wanted to make sure there was not any reason to avoid doing this do this.


#2

There shouldn't be any problem; caffeine is water-soluble, but...

Why?


#3

Coffee is fucking up my stomach and soda is out. So I need a way to get the stimulant in me in a way that allows me to spread the dose out rather then take it all at once.

You could try weening yourself off of it and then maybe you wouldn't be so irritable in the morning. :slightly_smiling:

Yup. I have 200 mg caffeine tabs; I just bite them in half of even quarters sometimes.
