    Precautions for avoiding caffeine overdose


    Millions of us love our morning coffee, and many of us feel unable to function until we’ve had a suitable dose of caffeine before commencing the day’s work. However, consume too much caffeine and the results can be extremely unpleasant. Symptoms of a caffeine overdose can include dizziness, heightened thirst and diarrhoea. You may be able to eliminate mild symptoms by drinking water or consuming foods high in potassium, such as bananas.

    Symptoms of an overdose

    Drinking water is one of the most effective ways to reverse a caffeine overdose. It’s wise to try and drink a glass of water for every cup of coffee you have consumed. One of the reasons you might feel dizzy due to drinking too much coffee is that caffeine, alongside other stimulants like tobacco, reduces blood flow to the brain. It’s said that 400mg of caffeine a day is a good limit for most adults. This equates to around four cups of coffee or two energy drinks. You could be risking a caffeine overdose if you consume more.

    If you go over your 400mg limit, you could start feeling restless and dizzy, and you may even experience muscle tremors. Insomnia may occur later, and you could find yourself making incredibly frequent toilet visits, much to the dismay of your boss. You may also experience an upset stomach and anxiety.

    Accidents in coffee shops

    Do you have a favourite coffee shop that you get your morning cappuccino or latte from? If you have been injured in a coffee shop and it wasn’t your fault, we may be able to help you. Accidents that could occur in coffee shops include slips, trips and falls. If you have hurt yourself due to a hazard like a spillage that you weren’t warned about, there’s a big chance we could assist you with claiming. Perhaps you experienced food poisoning after consuming a snack at a café? Maybe you were handed something that scalded or burnt you or something was spilt on you? Whatever the case, if you have come to harm in a café or coffee shop thanks to someone else’s negligence or recklessness, we can help.
