How do I come down off of too much caffeine?

And no, I don't have any pot.

I feel pretty crappy, jittery and anxious. Terrible.

Lots of water to flush it through your system. 8 - 12 oz every hour.

I actually od'd on caffiene and ended up in the emergency room. If your pulse is extremely fast and your face starts to feel numb call 911.

It was a good thing Zach Morris was there to help you through it.

Orange juice helps calm you down. So does smoking a cigarette.

Please share your story, I really want to know.

How much did you drink and over what period of time, how did you feel, what happened in the ER??

Use the jitteriness and exercise- you'll sweat it out.

Have a cigarette.

r3, Orange juice spikes blood sugar level, which is contraindicated in helping OP lower the caffeine high.

by Anonymousreply 710/03/2011

Damn OP how many coffees did you drink or did you take some caffeine pills?

by Anonymousreply 810/03/2011

Ketamine, yo!

Take a Valium bitch

Eat something starchy like a roll or some bread.

r4, I was hung over and was moving that day and didn't finish packing. All I wanted was to sleep but I had movers coming. I brewed a pot of coffee and kept refreshing my cup. I was dehyrdated from drinking the night before and my blood pressure was probably elevated from the alcohol. So I ended up drinking the whole pot of coffee in a couple of hours. I was anxious and jittery, and then started having heart palpitations which made me even more nervous. Then my face went numb and my left arm started to tingle all the way down to my fingertips. I thought I was having a stroke or heart attack. I called 911, paramedics came and my blood pressure was 190/100 - severely high. They gave me oxygen and brought me to the hospital. They hospital kept me on oxygen and gave me IV fluid. I had a full physical, ekg, and an echocardiogram after that, and there was nothing wrong with me. My doctor agreed it was a caffeine overdose.

all that from one pot of coffee over 'a couple of hours'?

by Anonymousreply 1510/04/2011

r15, more like the perfect storm - dehydration, elevated blood pressure and then over 1000 milligrams of caffeine in a short period of time.

A cigarette is a stimulant, you IDIOTS!

Turn off your computer or tablet because the backlighting keeps you alert.

@reply 19.. Umm going to the ER by calling 911 was RIGHT. You can go into cardiac arrest if you OD on caffeine.

R11 is right but Valium's not available over the counter. Any other tranquilizer would help - Ativan, Xanax, etc.

Alcohol might help - it's a depressant.

Maybe Unisom or even Benadryl but I'm not sure - Benadryl can cause palpitations but drowsiness is one of the side effects of both those antihistamines.

Don't smoke a cigarette - nicotine is a stimulant, like caffeine.

Oh and eat a lot quickly - especially carbs.

by Anonymousreply 2212/08/2013

Eat gobs of junk food, it will make you feel all normal again. Seriously eat a couple of sandwiches.

I have 400mg of caffeine every morning, you pussies, in addition to my Ritalin.

I'm actually a pretty calm and intellectual (read: introverted) person, but Im just calmer with all the stimulants running through me.

How old are you R24? I don't mean that in a snarky way, just curious.

by Anonymousreply 2512/08/2013

So how did things work out for the OP? Anybody know?

by Anonymousreply 2612/08/2013

R25 I am 24

I've taken those amounts for the past 5 years or so. I've actually gotten healthier, and I have years worth of full dr checkups to prove it. I'm a strict vegetarian, and super healthy otherwise, but I take those anyways (I have ADHD) sice they keep me attentive and calm. I'm naturally someone who doesn't need caffeine to feel alert, so sometimes I just don't take any pills and don't drink caffeine. I just have a bad habit of multitasking without the stimulants.

Does a lot of caffeine make anyone else really thirsty?

by Anonymousreply 2802/16/2015

Do you have any melatonin or other herbal relaxers? Kava, chamomile, or my favorite, the opiate like Kratom? How about some alcohol?

by Anonymousreply 2902/16/2015

Just wait a half hour and you'll be fine. What a fucking drama queen. It's not meth, fer crissakes.

Charcoal capsules. Start with 2-4.

KavaKava will smooth the caffeine jitters.

Drink lots of green tea with several tablespoons of ACV and eat a whole bunch of homemade raw sauerkraut. And beans, beans, beans for protein (ads ukko, of course). Don't forget quinoa, which is gluten free and has amino acids and fiber and other stuff. Miso paste and burdock root cleanse the blood stream and keep the body balanced.

I don't think I need to mention that If you are a woman, a mugwort vaginal steam would be ideal for you.

A Thorazine enema works wonders.

Beware of a brutal headache to come, OP.
