I recently asked my neurologist about whether it was safe for me to drink coffee. The most innocent of things may have a bad reaction with your medicine. The answer I received was “drink coffee in moderation”. I started drinking coffee a few years ago when I was taking Topamax. This medicine made me so drowsy that I needed the shot of caffeine to keep me awake. Because of this, I bypassed moderation a LONG time ago. Now I drink about 4-6 cups of coffee per day. Although, I have never really counted.
While I am on this journey to improve my health, another goal of mine is to get my coffee consumption down to about 2 cups per day. What were your experiences with coffee and chronic illness? Would you recommend that I stop drinking it altogether?
