Those things do cause a high and low cycle too. Just less than like hardcore drugs obviously, but a caffiene addiction can be horrible. Everything even water has to be taken in moderation. Im not a doctor but i would say anything in excess of 2 or 3 cups a day is probably an issue
Current guidelines advise to avoid treatment with stimulants as they may provoke a switch into mania or psychosis. That risk may be reduced with a mood stabilizer or antipsychotic. Not all physicians are comfortable prescribing the two together.
Low to moderate amounts of caffeine shouldn’t be a problem unless you’re fairly sensitive to it.
That “stimulated. Focus/energy/mood” is itself a high, as it’s not naturally occurring. Excessive doses of anything can be harmful, caffeine included. It can lead to any number of bad effects up to and including heart palpitations. And the prescription ones are worse. All things in moderation can be a good thing to remember.
My psychistrist was really careful when he gave me adhd meds, with clozapine and abilify. Honestly I feel the adhd meds don’t work. I don’t get anything from them. My dosage is pretty small, as my doctor was being careful. But I don’t get anything from caffiene either. I can drink a lot of coffee and energy drinks, no effect. In school I took caffiene pills cause I was so tired all the time. Am I immune to stimulants? Could it be because of adhd?
