My anti-anxiety medication's side effect has a hard counter in the form of caffeine.

Evidently it somehow fucks with the adenine receptors in my brain, or causes it to overproduce adenine, or something. Regardless, the caffeine's stopping me from feeling knackered.

Just, uh. Make sure to consult your doctor on the subject if you haven't already. Working doesn't necessarily mean "not causing kidney failure" or somethin'. Caffeine's usually not super reactive to stuff so far as I'm aware but self medicating (even with a pervasive, socially unquestioned drug) pretty much always adds extra risks.

... also probably be careful what you're getting the caffeine through, heh. Soda's the diabetes route, iirc tea can encourage kidney stones (which if you've never had, you never want and extra never want again if you have), so on, so forth.

I've checked drug interactions. The only thing it interacts with are MAOIs (Which interact with everything, hence why they're used far less often now) and alcohol. The alcohol interaction comes down to a doubling down of the tiredness effect.

The reason I shouldn't be having caffeine is just because it's got a chance, which is small it should be noted, of making my anxiety worse. Nothing to do with the medication, everything to do with my brain not working properly in the first place. And it's either an utterly miniscule risk of the caffeine making my anxiety worse (Which it shouldn't, I've been having caffeine for the first half of this bout of anxiety with some regularity and it did nothing to it) or I feel like I want to sleep all day until my body finally adapts to the medication.

I never liked caffeine that much, I find them spiderwebs quite accurate.

I don't envy the scientist who had to find the correct dose of sleeping pills for a spider, that wouldn't put it to sleep or kill it.

Maybe the reason it looks like that is because it kept dozing off and starting over

LOL  ;D ok no... imagine whatever task you're undertaking as an algorythm, executed perfectly it's that typical spider web - under the effect of drugs you get distracted so instead of going left when you should (in regular intervals) you do a few steps to much or too little and wonder: "wait did I just?... whatever I'll take next"

I don't envy the scientist who had to find the correct dose of sleeping pills for a spider, that wouldn't put it to sleep or kill it.


YOU don't?  :P

Engraved here is a rendition of an image of the Dwarf Fortress learning curve. All craftsdwarfship is of the highest quality. It depicts an obsidian overhang which menaces with spikes of obsidian and tears. Carved on the overhang is an image of Toady One and the players. The players are curled up in a fetal position. Toady One is laughing. The players are burning.

Isn't caffeine literally poision that we're immune to only because the dose, being designed for insects, is too low for us? That spider must be so close to death

Like, everything is poison. Especially every drug, I guess.

Okay, so you've crafted for yourself a set of false, easily falsifiable beliefs about your current situation based off of preconceptions you have from watching too much anime. And now you're going to be mad at me because the reality of the situation does not align with your delusion of how it's supposed to be.



No, I just wish you'd told me.

I did hear the same thing from my housemate the other day, at least.  Sounds right.
