I'm 26 years old and I tried a new weight loss supplement that I realize now I didn't need. I was just wanting to shed some extra weight even though I was only 105lbs. I took Lipo6Rx which basically had like over 350mg of caffeine and other herb blends and it was one pill and it sent me to the ER. That was 3 months ago. Ever since then I was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder and was given Clonazepam which made me suicidal so I discontinued it and have been trying to be as healthy as possible. I've only had 1 panic attack since then but my face is numb constantly and my eyes have been achy and my vision blurred since I did also have depersonalization. Thankfully it is slowly going away except for the numbness. I've stopped drinking alcohol and caffeine for 3 months now. I've read all these blogs and articles on caffeine leading to anxiety. Will I ever be ok to drink 1 coke? Or do these articles refer to like having a 2L by yourself? I've avoided even chocolate because of the caffeine content. The therapist I saw said that I'm making caffeine my phobia when it has nothing to do with my symptoms. Can I drink a cup of coffee or is it too soon? Im not afraid of the panic attack since I know they don't last, I'm afraid of the aftershock that leaves me feeling exhausted and short of breath with blurry vision for a week after.
