In reply to Caffeine's link to Anxiety/Depression. PTSD, posted by Karl on March 26, 1999, at 15:37:18

We know that caffeine affects the way that benzodiazepines function (it's thought that it affects the binding of the benzodiazepines to the benzodiazepine receptors), and clearly caffeine is a stimulant; so it's thought that caffeine is something that increases anxiety. On the other hand, one often hears it called a "mild antidepressant," and for some, moderate caffeine intake has a calming effect. But, for those with anxiety disorders, it's generally thought to be a good idea at least to significantly limit one's caffeine intake.
