No.



It frightens me that you started a thread about being up all night immediately followed by one asking if caffeine pills require a prescription.









Taking too much caffeine can cause serious problems.

This has the potential to go very, very wrong. I strongly advise you to consider why you want to do this and examine what would drive you to attempt such a thing. Going without sleep can cause mania/hypo-mania and adding caffeine to the mix can do that too, PLUS may cause cardiac arrhythmias, hallucinations and so on.

Hm yeah, mood swings, nausea, irritability, memory lapses, lack of focus, and if carried far enough, psychosis...good times.

Just saying. I think that if you're looking for a mind altering experience, there are easier ways.

Well, that's a relief! Here I was worried that you may go out and buy caffeine pills!

If your goal is to stay up for days on end, I think you could find some more powerful drugs than caffeine. If you're willing to look for them on the black market of course.

I'm not sure how many days it takes, but going too long without sleep will kill you. Literally.



Go to sleep!

Might as well go to sleep, you have a long way to go before anything fun can happen (if anything fun ever does happen) I'm fairly routinely up for 24 hours or so because of my job and its just....tiring. I have been up for 38 hours and the only effects it had on me was nausea, lack of focus, and delayed response to everything. Not good times

Why would you do this...?



There are so many other ways to occupy your time... including sleeping. Get a hobby, for real. :P
