I use Jet-Alert, a caffeine pill market by Bell Pharmaceuticals, to perk me up or stay awake for a little longer each night. I purchased them at the local Wal-Mart, and for a mere $2.99 for 100 pills, they were quite the bargain. Each pill contains 200 mg of caffeine, which is roughly the equivalent of two cups of coffee. They are small and easy to swallow, plus they do not taste bad, leaving no bad aftertaste behind. They are as safe as drinking coffee or soda pop, as long as you take the recommended dosage of them. There are no bad side effects, and they work very quickly to give you that extra pick-me-up. They are not habit forming so they are safe to use over a long period of time. Jet Alert caffeine pills can really help when you need a boost or to stay awake for an extended period of time.
