To achieve better results, L-Theanine can be taken alongside caffeine. When taking both L-Theanine and caffeine together, a ration of 2:1 (200mg L-Theanine and 100mg caffeine) is generally recommended. However this is not the case for people that are anxious.
L-Theanine generally has little to no side effects. In combination with caffeine it can however cause minor side-effects such as headache, dizziness and stomach distress.
As with any supplement, people with medical conditions, especially heart conditions, should take L-Theanine with great care and consult a doctor prior consumption.
