Hi there,

some time ago someone mentioned something about substitutes for coffeine. Due to some hidden "features" of Outlook Express I have lost many of my old e-mails.

I know that during the WW2 there was Pervidrin in use by German pilots to stay awake during their missions. Allied pilots must have used something like that also. Anyone having ideas? And what about the side effects? I have found out that Pervidrin is not sold any more, at least not under this name and not by the factory that produced it.
