    Any responses from veteran forum members? I'm trying to increase caffeine again but seeing things like this make me think twice.

    What was the context? I could see how in those with liver dysfunction that releasing toxins in the bloodstream (via caffeine) from the liver, and then stopping caffeine intake (thereby halting the bodys' increased purging of said toxins), could increase stress. But, that's just a theory, and I don't know what's actually going on.

    Not a veteran forum member, but I think it might be because caffeine withdrawal strongly increases serotonin and serotonin is the primary simulator of CRH/ACTH/cortisol/the entire cascade. I am actually at the point that I drink caffeine to *lower* cortisol...
