Caffeine is also a stimulant, so you’re kind of double dosing it (except that coffee isn’t as potent as Adderall, so it’s not double). I don’t have ADHD, but when I take Sudafed (also has stimulating properties) and more than one cup of coffee, I get nauseous. Or anything stimulating on an empty stomach can make me nauseous.

Definitely talk to your doctor about what’s going on, so they can help you resolve it.
