I’m wondering this, I like to drink a cup of coffee every day, but I have no idea if it makes the psychosis and the voices worse, could someone with knowledge tell me? I’m better now, the medicine is working a little, I just wanted to know about it.
For me, coffee makes my symptoms worse.
I have one cup of coffee in the morning and have no problems with it. Coffee later in the day interferes with my sleep.
How does it get worse? Do you hear more voices?
When I drink coffee at night I can sleep, but regarding the increase in voices, I don’t know, that’s why the question.
Coffee used to make my symptoms worse. However, since I had Covid in March, I have a lot of fatigue. So, I drink a lot of coffee. It doesn’t bother me now.
It does not cause an increase in voices for me.
I usually only drink 1 cup a day, I still don’t know if it makes my symptoms worse.
I should say before I had Covid fatigue, it was several cups of coffee which made my symptoms worse. One cup was fine for me.
If you really are not sure whether or not one cup will make your symptoms worse, not drinking it is airing on the side of caution.
Edit: try not drinking coffee for a few days and see if you notice a difference.
I don’t hear voices but coffee makes me feel constantly hungover and my functioning ability goes way down. It also increases my anxiety.
For me it cause anxiety which then leads to some panic attacks
I stopped drinking it years ago
In relation to anxiety, I could see this, it also increases with me.
Honestly I think too much coffee makes me manic, it just happened to me today.
Coffee improves negative symptoms. But hours later it makes me irritated
It doesn’t seem to make my psychosis worse. I don’t notice a difference on days I don’t have coffee versus days I do have coffee.
I drink coffee almost all day and sometimes at night…love it. doesn’t affect me.
I don’t think it affects psychosis. I do know it can make anxiety worse. And psychosis and anxiety often go together.
Caffeine makes my psychosis worse to the extent I can’t handle more than 3 cups a week.
I have schizoaffective disorder, but I still don’t understand what it means to be manic, I think I’m the depressive type.
In my case, it makes me quite anxious and I think I’ll stop, but it’s very good.
