Anonymous said: Not that I believe he takes prescription stimilants or has adult ADHD...but, he's been described by costars, journalists and his mother in the past as being a ball of energy. Ben has even said himself that drinking lots of coffee makes him talk faster and hyper. He does seem to have bounds of energy and SDCC is an overwhelming experience. Being in front of thousands of people can easily get the adrenaline pumping.
Having ADHD myself, as well as being an RN, I can say that caffeine has an opposite effect on the central nervous system as it does with someone with ADHD. It actually serves to slow one down so that one can focus and stop fidgeting. Think of what Ritalin, Concerta, etc (all methylphenidate) do to someone without ADHD: it wires them up and they have boundless energy. To someone with ADHD, it serves to calm the mind’s thought processes and bestill the central nervous system so that one is not bouncing around the room like a gibbon, lol.
