- Caffeine Withdrawal – Symptoms?
As per the thread title – what are the symptoms of caffeine withdrawal?
I’ve always been a coffee fiend, and the stronger the better (I usually drink proper grounds, not instant, and I prefer it black with sugar). (Edit – I do ride an Orange but I don’t drive an Audi)
I’ve decided though that I ought to cut down, so I’ve started cutting out my mid-morning “fix” and just drinking plain water instead.
After a few days though, I’m finding that I’m getting irritable (even more than usual), shaky, cold sweats and nausea. Is this what I should expect? Or is a trip to barber-surgeon on the cards for a course of leeches?Posted 5 years agoHeliosMember
I used to get the shakes and have cracking headaches when I tried to cut out caffeine. I used to stop drinking coffee for Lent and it was horrible every time – these days I just regulate my intake and don’t stop altogether…
When I did go cold turkey it took 2 weeks for the symptoms to stop.Posted 5 years agobeefheartMember
I used to drink loads of coffee, but gave it up (all caffeine) about a year ago.Posted 5 years ago
The headaches only lasted a couple of weeks, and the cravings a few months.
After that you can look forward to better sleep, feeling alert in the mornings(!), less irritability, better concentration, lower blood pressure and more energy throughout the day.
