Coffee's effect on antidepressants

Recommended Posts

This year four different psychiatrists have strongly recommended me to completely avoid coffee. I'm under treatment with a combination of sertraline and mirtazapine. But in the scientific medical journals I couldn't find any consensus on this topic. What has your doctor recommend you about coffee?

(Looks like the topic moved places 🙂  Here's my reply from the other one:)  

Hi there.  Yeah that's a little strange to me.  My doctors have always told me to be careful with caffeine in general, but that's because it can sometimes make anxiety worse.  I take sertraline as well and they never said anything about coffee affecting the antidepressant.  Maybe they meant for you to avoid coffee because of anxiety?
