caffeine pills

Discussions about how to find those things that are not immediately obvious

Moderator: Charlie Phillips

Forum rules
1) Please search :pray: before posting. Note that you should also search content-relevant forums (like Food & Drink for those items, and not just WCIF). If there is a content-relevant forum, the thread should be there, not here.

2) Please append your request to an existing thread if you find a stale one, rather than starting a new one. :pray:

3) Please post separately :pray: for each search item, not one thread for "olives and sour cream". Two threads, one for each. This makes it much easier for the moderator to merge your thread with an existing one, if any.

Of course, if you still can't find what you're looking for, please do feel free to post, and we'll do our very best to help you find what you need. If you have any trouble using the search function or the forum, please don't hesitate to send a PM (private message) to the Where Can I find...? moderator asking for help. Happy posting!!! :rainbow:

You'll never have to worry about a runny nose either. Lol. Mix it with 25mg of ephedrine and a couple baby aspirin for a super kick in the ass! :lol:

I've noticed that with the cheap aspirin pills they sell here too. Still would like to get some real caffeine pills. BTW, there are companies devoted to producing them here in Taiwan... but I cant seem to find them other than online. I don't need 50000 pills... just a few 100? :lol:

Any follow up on this?

I asked in a few pharmacies but they had no idea.
Will Costco have them?

How about the Kopiko candy? Supermarkets here have it.
Might be too weak for your needs though. From their website:
Around 4 or 5 sweets contain the caffeine equivalent of a cup of coffee.

I use iHerb for all my supplement needs in Taiwan. Shipping is very reasonable, and the packages usually arrive within a week or two. Most supplements there are a fraction of the price you can buy them for here (glutamine, creatine etc). Never had any issues with customs either.
