Thanks for the replies (JBoom, I read yours in my email notification, but it never showed up on the forum – if you want I can post it for future reference). It sounds like I should plan on dropping if not eliminating the caffeine, and that an occasional alcoholic drink should be OK. I got a minor headache yesterday afternoon. I’m not sure if maybe it was caffeine withdrawal after all, or if it might be an effect of the Adderall wearing off (or, I suppose, a coincidence, although I’m not prone to headaches), so I had a mug of black tea this morning to see if that makes a difference.

I should have said upfront that I realize that You Are Not My Doctor, and I will ask mine when I see her on Thursday. But I sometimes find that doctors don’t know a lot more than the package insert, so first hand anecdotes are good to hear.
