RE: Coffee drinking much is possible?
5+ cups in an hour = failed drugs test


Caffeine intake is restricted (but not totally banned) by the NCAA. Urine concentrations up to 15 mcg/ml are permitted by the NCAA, about 500 mg of caffeine ingested within one hour would approximate this level in a normal adult male. Levels above this would result in a failed drug test.

Product Amount of Caffeine Equiv. in urine
1 cup of regular coffee 100 mg 1.5 mcg/ml
1 coke/ pepsi 46 mg .7 mcg/ml
1 No Doz 100 mg 1.5 mcg/ml
1 Vivarin 200 mg 3.0 mcg/ml

Possible side effects from caffeine include heart palpitations, anxiety, nervousness and insomnia.
