reverse effects of caffeine
is it possible that caffeine could have reverse effects on someone?
everytime i drink coffee i feel less energetic, sort of lethargic.
this has also happened with caffeine pills
could this be attributed to a health problem?
im a male 19 years, in good physical shape, active, and never had a single medical issue or sickness, other than the odd cold and seasonal allergies... take no medication whatsoever
any input would be appreciated

You feel that immediately or after a little while? I think everyone crashes from coffee/caffeine after the effects wear off and it's hard for me to keep my eyes open.

if you are ADD it can have this effect. Do other drugs do this too you as well? I, like everybody else, think ADD is for the most part bunk but this is one of the symptoms.
Also if you overload on caffine you get a narcosis effect and you body shuts down so it can focus on running it though your system. It takes ALOT for this to happen however.I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me.

I'll probably get shot for saying this but caffine, like just about every other drug, is essentialy poison and everybody reacts differnetly to it. It may just be that you are in really good shape and your body prevents the "usual" response to it by diverting its resources to "fighting " and isolating the coffee making you feel drowsy. I'm certainly no doctor but I have know a few people that have similar experiences as you.I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me.

I had an Aunt that lived to be 92. Every night she would drink a cup of coffee to fall asleep. She was a very calm individual with a slow metabolism. I'm the opposite. Type A, high strung. A cup makes me shake, depending upon the amount of sleep I've had and the amount of food in my system at the time. Though perscription drugs are a definate factor, your body make up is more of one. Caffeine is a homeopathic that's used as a seditive in those 1 to 250 type blends that homeopathics do. There is some science in making you tired after drinking caffeine so I wouldn't loose any sleep over it. Get it? Loose sleep over it? Oh, well.

I have ADD, and as was stated I do get drowsy, and burned out feeling at about 15-20 minutes after a cup or two of tasty java. It's a blessing, because I roast for flavor, and taste for flavor. I don't consume much of my product. I sure to taste alot though. And just because one doesn't take meds for ADD doesn't mean that they arent. Why not look at your life and ask, yourself if you might have ADD tendencies. If you do then: If it looks like a skunk, walks like a skunk and smells like a skunk: It's ADD! hehe
MY $.02If your java tastes bitter: ASK QUESTIONS.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

A lot of ADD talk going on these days. Seems to be an epidemic going around especially in the public schools. Why more than 20 - 30 years ago? Seems like an excuse to give drugs to kids by the same people who tell them to say no to drugs. Your opinion is worth more than .02. Don't cut yourself short. I work with a couple of ADD's at my company and it takes a little patience bringing them back on subject occasionally. One's an avid coffee drinker and it doesn't seem to affect him in the least. Like I stated prior, it's the individual's metabolism that may have the greatest affect on their reaction to caffeine.

Also..well...alot of people drink coffee to "wake up" whcih often equates to being tired in the first place.
Being tired and mixing with caffeine can make you feel very lethargic.
