Expect Caffeine Withdrawal

Planning on giving up coffee for the health benefits? If you’re pregnant, prone to anxiety attacks, or worried about being addicted to caffeine, giving it up may be a good idea— just watch for the symptoms of withdrawal. Symptoms can include headache, fatigue, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating.

Withdrawal symptoms can arise quickly. Medical experts say they generally begin 12–24 hours after your last cup of coffee (or whatever form you regularly take your caffeine in), and can last up to two weeks. So be prepared (and warn those around you as well).
