Re: Re: coffee

On at least one occasion, caffeine helped me.

I was shopping, and the lighting was causing transient flares of dp/dr. After tolerating that for a while, I went to my car and chewed up 1/4 of a generic No-Doz tablet (about 50mg caffeine), and quickly stabilized and felt fine.

I also get panic attacks and anxiety, and I don't know that I'd try the same remedy if my dp/dr were flaring in one of those contexts.
