Caffeine can also trigger panic attacks!!

I know a lot of us loves our coffee, energy drinks and caffeinated soda's, but people like us that have panic attacks...well...lets just say...its like putting our finger on the burner. Caffeine raises the heart rate and people that are prone to panic attacks should really avoid these drinks. My doctor told me to stay away from caffeine. There are other alternatives. If your a coffee drinker, try decaffeinated coffee. Soda's, there are a bunch out there without caffeine in them, non-caffeinated root beer, sprite/7up, some faygo's. Most of us that have panic attacks have tons of energy already and don't need more of it, best thing to do is to do some kind of exercise. Exercise will GIVE you energy. Some of the misconceptions of exercising is getting tired after, normally, you'll feel great! Which sometimes, wakes you up a bit.
