Random Question about Caffeine
- 0May 20, '13 by seahawksfanguyIs it possible that having 2 cups of coffee around 4pm kept me up all night? I don't usually drink coffee however I was craving it. Last night I couldn't sleep, was irritable, and tossed and turned until 4am. Ive usually dont drink caffeinated products because I am sensitive to it but I though 4pm was early enough. Normally I fall asleep fine.

I used to drink a can of Coke around noon if I had accepted the double shift until 11pm, knowing I would still be wide dang awake when I got home at midnight. Still can only do decaf unless I really want to be up all night and look forward to feeling like crap in the morning.
When the only drug I got rx'd for migraine was a combo of ergot and caffeine, I was always faced with the decision to have a splitting headache and be awake all night in pain, or have no headache but be awake all night anyway. Bleahh. (Now I take something without caffeine and it works just fine, thanks.)

Personally, I have never liked the taste and feeling of coffee/soda but since my first year of nursing school I find it to be an amazing “tool” to get me through the day. ONE cup of coffee taken around 8PM can last me up to 24 hours; perfect for all-nighters, work, and class the next day. I don’t recommend you using it the way I am (as I am horrible to talk to on caffeine), but I do suggest that you try to suppress your cravings and avoid it on nights you want some sleep!
