Caffeine Withdrawal

What is Caffeine Withdrawal?

If you regularly drink a lot of coffee and/or tea and suddenly stop drinking it at any time, for any reason, you may experience a series of symptoms due to caffeine withdrawal. Caffeine is a natural stimulant most commonly found in tea and coffee, which affects the central nervous system to varying degrees.

Symptoms of caffeine withdrawal

Caffeine withdrawal symptoms can include:

·      A headache that usually starts behind the eyes and then moves to the front of the head

·      Extreme tiredness

·      Heart rhythm abnormalities

·      Irritability

·      Lack of concentration

·      Dizziness

·      Lethargy

·      Constipation

·      Depression

·      Muscle pain, cramp

·      Flu-like symptoms

·      Insomnia

·      Feeling sick or vomiting

·      Anxiety

·      Brain fog   

It is possible to avoid caffeine withdrawal by gradually changing the way you drink coffee or tea over a period of about 2-3 weeks, by alternating with decaffeinated coffee or tea until you’ve tapered off regular coffee or tea completely.
