I read that alcohol can exacerbate side effects – can’t speak from experience as I avoid it.

Coffee and Ritalin do not mix (Concerta is the same drug) – at least in my experience. I have my morning coffee when I wake up because I enjoy that one and then I take the meds a couple of hours later. When it’s wearing off I have another coffee or tea (but that’s in the evening – or afternoon if I only take a morning dose – I am on fast release).

I don’t feel the need for caffeine anymore. But a coffee when it wears off is nice.
