i used to love this stuff but i drank it yesterday, only 1 cup, and felt like i was on speed or something...I thought maybe it was the caffeine mixing with my meds but then I remembered some people saying yerba mate didn't mix well w/ SSRIs.

otherwise, without being on SSRIs (assuming that's the problem now), it does a great job keeping me feeling awake, and focused, and not the the overfocused type of awake, and no restlessness like w/ caffeine too; i get mental fatigue/fog w/ caffeine; caffeine doesn't really help me concentrate either,

taste is a little too bitter, might be good idea to mix it with something sweet
