When I injured my spine and had to have three broken lumbar vertebrae fused my physician recommended taking my pain medication with a cup of coffee or tea but I do not like either. So I asked about supplementing the medication with a simple caffeine tablet and he said that would probably work. I tried JetAlert and it works just fine and my medication now works even better and I now need less medication to get the desired result for my chronic pain! This is a great product and does exactly what it is intended for...mild to moderate alertness when needed, etc.

I'm no lightweight, in any way, shape or form. I was a daily Excedrin user for years, always taking 3 gelcaps at a time. Since Excedrin was at least temporarily removed from the shelves, I bought a bottle of this. My background- I drink one to two 10 oz. mugs of coffee each morning (at one point in my life, I'd drink three, if I had time enough that day). I'm a Southerner- both strong iced tea & Coca-Cola are a mainstay of my drinking life, and have been forever. I'm a full-figured woman, and caffeine has never been known to make me jittery or make my head feel strange. Well, apparently, I've met my match- like Rocky fighting Drago in "Rocky VI". I took two of these the first time I had them, because I am not a person who usually takes only one pill of anything at a time- big mistake. I didn't feel energetic- I felt like I'd taken speed, without any pleasent aspects included. My hands have never shaken so much in my life, not even when having to meet with three of my bosses by myself to discuss an annual performance review. I'd highly suggest that you take these things seriously. I now take one at a time, and I darn sure don't take one every day, only when I absolutely feel like death warmed over & have to take in a pick-me-up. Taking two of these as a thin person, I would think, would be utterly dangerous. I'm not sure I'd recommend it to those that are at their normal weight, and definitely not the underweight, at all. I find no appetite-curbing properties come w/ these, and the energy that one pill gives is akin to taking two Excedrin & sipping on a Coca-Cola. Just right. I also would highly suggest not taking these after lunchtime, or your bedtime will be pushed up indefinitely. These seem to take awhile to work, but last in the system longer than Excedrin did. That's just my anecdotal experience, though.

      Ran out of No-Doz, so I thought I'd try these. I never had nausea or similar side effects before with caffeine pills, but 1 Jet-Alert pill made me feel sick to my stomach. Definitely won't buy these again!

          Works as well as any other brand of caffeine I've ever tried, and it's so much cheaper! The only problem I see is that one or two pills in the bottle are usually broken due to the elongated shape of the pill. But, you're still going to come out way ahead.

            Good as a pick me up. Not as quick as a popular but unavailible for now brand I used to use, but not as jittery as when I used a popular, but unavailible named brand . Jet Alert is a smoother way to get a pick me up.

              This provides a quick boost of energy compliments of 200 mg. of caffeine.

              PS For those that have gastric reflux disease, my experience is that you will not have the same reflux side effects from this as compared with coffee.

                Comments about Jet-Alert Caplets, Double Strength Caffeine, 90 ea:

                I have only used Jet Alert since Nodoz went off the market. One pill or
                a half has most of the time reawakened me, however
                many times I have 2 or more and they still don't work. Last April
                on a long trip I used 5 or 6 over 6 hours and got sick. The hospital Dr's
                said it was food poisoning as caffeine doesn't cause throwing up.
                On a long trip in on Sept 2 same thing happened. I know it's the pills now.
                I strongly suspect the inert ingredients must be the problem.
                The NoDoz bottle doesn't show the inert ingredients. so I can't compare
                them if there is a difference as I never had the problem with them before.

                    Comments about Jet-Alert Caplets, Double Strength Caffeine, 90 ea:

                    Jet-Alert seems as effective as other 200mg caffeine pills I've tried. You may notice that as you use caffeine products, your body becomes acclimated to them just like with other drugs, requiring a higher dosage to get the same effect you originally got. It takes me about an hour to feel the full effect, but these are so much cheaper than buying the energy drinks seen in stores. Jet-Alert pills are not scored in the middle (NoDoz pills are scored), so to get a half dosage, you must chop it manually or bite it in half.

                    I have used Nodoz usually a half a caplet or two on hour trip to work for better part of 12 years and before that since about 1993. As Nodoz is unavailable, I tried Jet Alert for the first time because of the easy to split caplets. Problem has been - 2 times in past week I took 1 and one half pills in the 45 minutes and I still had hard time staying awake. And a couple weeks ago on a trip I had hard time driving 2 or 3 pills didnt help. I have an unopened bottle I want to return. but not sure I can as is 30 days past reciept. Never had this issue with Nodoz. I do not recommend this product.
