Does coffee worsen your psychosis

I’m wondering my parents and everybody else seems to think it does for me I just don’t see it in me I find coffee actually calms me idk :man_shrugging:

No, my psychosis is bad regardless.

If I have over two cups,

Or sometimes just two cups,

My symptoms get much worse.

Caffeine definitely has an impact.

It doesn’t make my psychosis worse.

It does seem to affect my irregular heartbeat from what I can tell (I own a portable EKG).

More than three espressos and I get on my wife’s nerves.

I can only have 2 cups of instant a day now. It makes me so much worse if I have more.


For me it does, I can’t handle it anymore.

I now drink low or no caffeine teas.


I think it’s ok in moderation
I like tea I think it perks me up

If I have more than one can of coffee(4 cups), it will get difficult in a certain way, while it feels still good being awake with it.

Second that. I don’t notice a change, for better OR worse, when I have coffee. :coffee:


I have no problem with caffeine.
I used to drink 4 or 5 coffees.
Now only 2 or at most 3

I find the opposite. If I’m tired and groggy my psychosis is worse.

Off medication I found ground coffee heart racing strong for me, but on meds it’s just like a normal coffee.

It does for me, but it’s difficult because it makes me feel more alive.

And it’s been really hard because I get The Same thoughts on it every morning, and they are ALWAYS grievances with my father.

I had a talk with my mom, and ultimately it was healthy. I left it with her, that it is natural for a 42 year old to see the grass as A LOT greener if I rented a place of my own.

It’s been 18 months of the same thing… the thoughts. And I’ve been in their care for over 15 years.

I gave up coffee it made me really bad anxiety and made me totally psychotic. Really bad symptoms on coffee much better without it

I used to drink 30+ cups a day. That was pretty awful. And definitely made me worse. Now I have 2 maybe 3 a day and all is good with that. Been drinking more herbal teas in the evening now. The sleepytime tea is actually very soothing before bed.

No i dont think so but not so good for stomach.
