The research info on caffeine and depression is quite mixed. Just look around, you'll find studies to support either position on this...if you decide to take one, and I don't: I only maintain that for many people who are non-habituated to it, that it works, at least in the SHORT term.
Arguably if you use it as an AD, you should titrate your dose (maybe take caffeine pills instead of coffee to do so more precisely), so that it doesn't wear off till you're ready for bed. Like any other Stim that I've ever heard of, when it wears off, you get a letdown, and may well feel worse than B4 you took it. This may be the kind of depression often referred to RE: caffeine, since many people regard it as a "morning only" thing.
> Do you drink coffee and also take stimulants? Wondering how people respond.
