Need a coffee substitute!!!

Posted , 5 users are following.

Right, my IBS is terrible when it comes to coffee. But I need it to wake up, but I also have to deal with maybe a hour or so of diarrhea, but this isnt always, it's a bit of a gamble really. But I don't want to gamble , what can I drink as a substitute??? For energy???

    5 hour energy, perhaps vitamins such as b12. Diet pills, vivrin, I've been told Tea actually has more caffeine than coffee.  I've also heard eating an apple can give the same burst of energy as coffee.  It kinda depends on how far you want to go.

    Hi jake, I can totally understand as I also need some caffeine to kick start my day...I usually prefer black tea, Well I make it with milk so it is diluted and helps me to stimulate my brain, well tea has mild laxative effect, so be cautious when you have diarrhea..
