PS: Caffeine exacerbates the side effects of many bipolar disorder medications, especially those that are ‘activating’ such as Abilify and anti depressants such as Effexor, Prozac and Zoloft. But… to be honest, I was able to drink plenty of caffeine when I was on lithium as it was so sedating!
What is your experience with caffeine?
