  • My SO has anxiety attacks, he take zoloft for them. But if he drinks lots of caffeine he has them anyway, so we drink caffeine free pop and coffee

  • Yes---it happens to me alot. I drink the Half Caffeinated coffee and never drink Coke or Mt Dew--too much caffeine. It makes me feel really tense and hyper, palpitations. I am going to try to stop drinking all caffeinated beverages .
