Vivarin Review
| Pre-med Student
Personally, this medication gives me horrible headaches, but it gives me such a feeling of euphoria that I am able to overlook the headaches. I only take Vivarin around finals week, but it really helps me concentrate on my school work and gives me a huge confidence boost that helps get me through those few weeks of hell!

Can confirm. It really isn't bad when staying hydrated and drinking lots of water. But it tastes like metal in my mouth (at first I thought I was getting sick or something, but the sickness never happened).

It's true and it's cause it dehydrates you leaving you without the salivation you usually have.

That makes no sense, Gabriel ...

Its because you dont open your mouth much to talk if you have your mou that closed for long periods of time you will get bad breath

Stomach Problems from Vivarin
| polo
The dose is way too much, so I cut them up. Coincidentally, I always have an upset stomach. Not sure if it's the caffeine, or the breaking of the coating.
