Caffeine Intoxication

Caffeine intoxicationFor some people there's nothing like that first cup of coffee in the morning. The boost of caffeine gives the body extra energy, but it comes at a cost. Caffeine is a stimulant that affects the central nervous system. While there can be an initial rush of energy during caffeine intoxication, the body will dip in the other direction when the initial effects of the caffeine wear off. This - along with building up a tolerance to caffeine - are some of the signs of caffeine addiction.

Signs of Caffeine Intoxication

Here is some more information on the signs of caffeine intoxication:

  • Excitement, restlessness and nervousness
  • Insomnia - the inability to fall asleep
  • Rambling behavior
  • A temporary boost of energy

The temporary boost of energy may be nice in the beginning, but as you build up a tolerance and start to become addicted to caffeine, you need more and more of it just to maintain normal energy levels. This can be a huge problem in many ways. There are other dangers of caffeine intoxication as well.

From the sleeplessness to the rough "coming down" off of caffeine intoxication, there are many serious health issues to consider before you drink another large coffee twice a day. As the body likes the boost of energy, it begins to crave caffeine, needing more and more in able to function normally. This is when caffeine intoxication can lead to caffeine addiction.
