Coffee makes me sleepy and foggy? is that normal?

When I drink coffee I feel sleepy and in a "fog" of sorts. Like today Me and DH went out for breakfast and drove 30 miles to the next town for some shopping...I slept the whole way, it knocks me right out?
Has anyone heard of this? being sleepy when drinking coffee?

  • Well,Coffee is a stimulant. If you have trouble w/focus,orgnization,It could be that you are wired like those w/ADD/ADHD. If I give my kids diet pepsi~it mellos them out. Please don't get me wrong,I don't do it for the purpose of the result. My dd take medication and is under the care of a doctor. Anyhoo,Caffine has a different effect on ppl w/ADD/ADHD. Just a possible reason.
