Caffeine definately made my OCD, anxiety, and ADD worse...I work at a cafe for a weekend/summer job and used to have AT LEAST 6 cups by noon (along with Red Bull and Monster energy drinks
) Not a good idea, I'd feel like I was having a never-ending anxiety attack, and the "crash" afterwards was awful. When I started taking Adderall for ADD, I cut out caffeine cold turkey.Now I have the occasional energy drink or soda, but nothing like before. It's made a big difference in how I feel and act.
Chloestewie - The first couple of days/week of stopping drinking caffiene are soooo hard! Excedrin migrane works well for the headaches (probably because it has caffeine in it, lol) You might even feel more shaky or anxious, but those feelings will go away
Good luck with it, I hope everything works out well for you. Post again to let us know how you're doing!
