Does coffee make anyone else nervous?
« on: June 21, 2014, 05:57:35 AM »
It's almost every time I drink it, I had about four cups today and I feel terrified. Does anyone else experience this after drinking coffee? o - o

4 cups wow it is loaded with Caffeine ! If you already have anxiety and panic the worse thing to do is drink coffee or pop loaded with Caffeine it will make you jittery and jumpy ,shaky and more anxious and wired!

Try and flush your system out with drinking water and don't drink that stuff anymore it isn't good for people like us with our anxiety like I said it will make you Hyper and feel like you are climbing the walls. If you feel you have to drink some then only small amounts or caffeine free!

Take care and you will be okay and yes many many of us are now Caffeine Free!

Love coffee and have to start the day with it, but Anything over 2-3 cups a day makes me super jittery, so yes 4 cups can totally cause anxiety!

Just wanted to add that coffee in moderation (2 cups or so a day) can be very healthy bc of antioxidants

Yeah, everybody has a different tolerance for caffeine. Maybe 3 cups is OK for you, but 4 is overkill. Next time, maybe see how you feel with each cup -- if you're too anxious, or if you feel good. You might need less coffee than you realize to get that energized feeling.

As a general rule for anxiety, cutting out stimulants like caffeine can help keep your mood more stable and calm.

4 cups, I think would definitely make you jittery. 

I used to drink 1/2 cup every morning and once in a while a full cup.  I've stopped due to palpitations, however, I haven't noticed any difference without it so I might start it again.  I do miss it.

Believe it or not, it actually has the opposite effect on me if I drink it at night.  My husband and I can drink coffee at 8 or 9 p.m. and it will actually make us sleepy.  Too funny.

I think feeling anxious and jittery after 4 cups is totally normal. :)

I don't touch caffeine now.  Not in coffee, sodas, nothing.  It makes a WORLD of difference.  Give it a try  :action-smiley-065:

I suppose that was a bit excessive x.x Thank you guys! I'm gonna try to only drink 1 cup, maybe less and not put sugar in it. Otherwise I suppose coffee isn't worth it xD  I'd rather be tired and comfortable!  ^^ Thank you again!!

I can't imagine drinking 4 cups... 1 cup alone kickstarts my anxiety. Cut back for sure, little to no sugar as well.
