I ■■■■■■ up I’ve been drinking caffeine and I’m having mood swings etc…goddam it. I’m paying the consequences.
Yeah I get mood swings too if I drink too much coffee.
How do you get through it?
I just do.
I don’t do anything special.
Maybe you can walk or pace for a while.
Or listen to music or distract yourself.
Since you seem treatment resistant, I would cut out caffeine and cigs. I’m fine with them, but I would probably be better without them. I know my wallet would be.
They give me a stimulant effect.
I’m not treatment resistant. I need to rid the caffeine. It’s causing psychosis
I jump on the treadmill and exercise it off.
Drink tea instead
Yes I have decaf tea.
Yes caffeine is bad for schizophrenics. It’s a stimulant so it’s like pot. It makes us psychotic and on edge at least to my personal experience and what the psychartist said
Well, you know what caffeine does to you. The logical solution is to avoid it or cut way down. I know from experience not to overdo it. I used to drink diet cokes until I was literally shaking. I am more careful now and I don’t do that anymore.
Buy the way: I hope you’re not using the Allah nicotine and Budda sugar too much. Those brand name products are addictive.
I try to drink tea but in the morning I have to make a pot of coffee. It just wakes me up and tastes fresh. It does make me a little bit on edge but I’m having a hard time controlling my caffeine consumption.
It is not unusual for me to have 4 monsters, 2 coke zeros, and 1-2 cups of coffee a day. I’m so tired from meds. It is not healthy and it is expensive. I also smoke 20-30 cigs a day.
I have been hooked on caffeine for a long time. I can drink it right up until I go to sleep and it doesn’t affect me that much.
Stop smoking! Hugs.
Caffeine used to make me psychotic when my meds weren’t working so well. Now it just makes me anxious to the point I get physically ill. I’ve learned pretty quickly to stop.
I drink cups and cups of coffee to cancel out the sedation from the meds. Its one of the ways I can function. I’ve drank too much coffee since my teens. My dad is the same. Must be a genetic tolerance to caffeine as I don’t feel any negative impact.
I drink 3 coffees in the morning.
Then I have heartburn
I had a go with tea for about a month and a half. I began abusing it early on. I got too anxious and had to stop.
