I don't drink coffee no more. It makes my anxiety really bad. I also cut out pop because any caffeine stimulants will send me into a panic attack. Try to avoid caffeine it will just make you worse.

I used to drink 4 cups of coffee and day with no anxiety problems.

I stopped drinking coffee among other negative habits and volia...anxiety problems.

Anyone know anything about "coffea cruda"

THanks,
John

Caffeine is a CNS stimulant - and is absolutely horrible for anxiety. What you are probable experiencing is caffeine withdrawal. If you need a little shot try a cup or two of green tea. It only has a fraction of the caffeine.

I never knew why I would feel so crazy inside my head after I drank coffee- I thought that was the reaction you are supposed to feel from caffeine but it was not fun! I drink half-caf or decaf if i absolutely have to. I miss the taste but not the crazy feeling!

I think I have an addiction to coffee. When I wake up in the morning I get excited to have my coffee. Its almost like a high I get after drinking it. I know that is not good, but I can't help it. I look forward every day to when i can drink coffee.

When my GAD first started I stopped drinking coffee and alcohol. I didn't notice any difference. Unless I drink a LOT of coffee (like 500mg of caffeine in the morning) I can't say it affects my anxiety level.

I am not a coffee person but a diet coke drinker and after drinking about 5 of those a day and taking about 3 excedrin a day I wondered why I was always on edge, but now that I have stopped I feel worse. I notice if I have just one diet coke, I start feeling a little better. Just my 2 cents. I think in moderation it can do good things, but in excess, like everything else, it can be bad for us.

why do you take excedrine everyday????

I'm so jealous of everyone in this thread who can still have caffeine. I had to cut out all caffeine (even green tea is too much for me) 2 years ago because whenever I'd have any it would lead to an instant panic attack. It's hard not having a crutch like coffee to lean on when I'm tired especially because I have constant sleeping problems. So generally I've just been fatigued constantly for the past 2 years.

I miss coffee!  My poor coffee maker has sat unused for months now  :(  The most caffeine I'll dare have its a bit of Pepsi every now and then and never at night.  I'm terrified it'll worsen the insomnia, which thankfully has gotten better so I don't want to jinx that.
