What can be done to treat or reduce caffeine withdrawal symptoms?
In our reading, we have encountered a number of nutritional supplements and other products that have been suggested to potentially help with caffeine withdrawal symptoms / PAWS.
We have personally tried:
To our knowledge, it is not clear that any of these have particularly helped. As noted on the PAWS page, a problem with these long-lasting withdrawal symptoms is that they get better and worse with little or no clear cause, so it may seem that a supplement is helping, but the improvement might actually be just from the passage of time!
To our understanding, the only treatment that definitely helps with these symptoms is: TIME!
A number of posts from others going through this experience have recommended:
Getting plenty of sleep
Exercise (even walking)
Relaxing, knowing that the symptoms will improve slowly over the long run and that you are not alone!
