Default Natural and legal stimulants?

I can't have much caffeine, anyone know any herbs that will get me up and running and not crash in an hour?

First I'd need to know why it is you can't have caffeine.

I bought so called ephedrine to use for a sinus infection, BUT there was no ephedrine in it and I ended up consuming the equivalent of 25 cups of coffee, so I ended up overdosing, having my stomach convulse so bad the lining ripped. now anything stronger than black coffee or a soda gives me cramps and occasionally panic attacks from my "near death" experience, well. I thought I was going to die. turns out the crap I took was designed to be "trucker pills" or no doze. BUT THE DAMNED BOTTLE PLAINLY SAID IN BIG RED LETTERS, EPHEDRINE! I should have sued the hell out of everybody concerned.
