Caffeine withdrawals

Recommended Posts

Started my two week preoperative diet yesterday. I had already gotten down to having only 6oz of diet coke per day so I figured I wouldn't have any issues. I have had a terrible headache today. Tylenol is not touching it. I am guessing its not having caffine. Any suggestions??

Not really a suggestion but you will likely get that same headache on and off for a week. The good news is. Once you get through it you will feel a lot better.

Hang in there!

Oh how I miss my diet cokes. I had stopped them prior to the pre-op diet but found I had a horrible sugar withdrawal headache. It stuck around for two days. Once it passed I have been great.

Caffeine withdrawal is the worst, add to that the aspartame withdrawal from diet drinks and it's awful! BUT it is temporary!! Two days, maybe three of headaches and maybe a little dizziness but then you'll be over it and feel so much better. Make sure you are hydrated, drinking lots of Water helps to flush the system. Good luck!!

        I would love to be your accountability partner. I had the sleeve in 2021, so maybe I can give you some insights.

        Please message me back, looking forward to hearing from you!
