Why Does Coffee Help Make You Feel Less Off?

Why Does Coffee Help Make You Feel Less Off?

I've noticed that when im feeling dizzy or just really off my game that a cup of coffee helps take the edge off and makes me feel better. Does anyone know why that is?

I have no problem drinking coffee and i rather enjoy it (I'd hope so, 'cause I have 7 different ways of making it). I've never given myself a limit, but I'm usually satisfied at around 2 mugs per day or so.

Coffee dont bother me, i drink about 5 cups every morning, then the rest of the day im drinking coke, or else i get too nervous if i go without it. it might be because i used too be an alcoholic back in the late 80s until 1998 so after i quit alcohol i went to drinking coke.

This story im posting is funny, i remember when i switched doctors around 2012 from saint cloud, mn to mincep epilepsy clinic in minneapolis, mn. they had me on a 7 day eeg test, and couldnt get me to have any seizures, and the doctor at mincep knew i like drinking coke, so after about 5 days the dr. would give me coke to drink and told me to drink all i want, so it took me about 9 or 10 cans one day to get me to have a seizure, and they were finally able to get a reading.

Fletch Coffee is also a "natural" stimulant. The difference is you don't know what's in the other. Trial & error dosing just to adjust it's affect on you-how it affect your meds you'll never know. Please ask Dr bout this we can't play doctor on ourselves.
