- Effects of caffeine on anxiety and panic attacks in patients with panic disorder: A systematic review and meta-analysisby Lisa Klevebrant on December 6, 2021
CONCLUSIONS: The results confirm that caffeine at doses roughly equivalent to 5 cups of coffee induces panic attacks in a large proportion of PD patients and highly discriminates this population from healthy adults. Caffeine also increases anxiety in PD patients as well as among healthy adults at these doses although the exact relationship between caffeine-induced anxiety and panic attacks remains uncertain. The results suggest that caffeine targets important mechanisms related to the...
- Pharmacological depletion of serotonin and norepinephrine with para-chlorophenylalanine and alpha-methyl-p-tyrosine reverses the antidepressant-like effects of adolescent caffeine exposure in the male ratby Sarah M Turgeon on September 8, 2020
Adolescent exposure to caffeine has been shown to decrease immobility in the forced swim test, suggesting and antidepressant-like effect of caffeine; however, studies have produced different results with regard to caffeine-induced active behaviors. The present study attempted to clarify the possible neurochemical mechanisms of caffeine's action by selectively depleting norepinephrine with alpha-methyl-p-tyrosine or serotonin with para-chlorophenylalanine in two separate experiments and assessing...
- Caffeine induces neurobehavioral effects through modulating neurotransmittersby Fawaz Alasmari on April 11, 2020
Evidence demonstrates that chronic caffeine exposure, primarily through consumption of coffee or tea, leads to increased alertness and anxiety. Preclinical and clinical studies showed that caffeine induced beneficial effects on mood and cognition. Other studies using molecular techniques have reported that caffeine exhibited neuroprotective effects in animal models by protecting dopaminergic neurons. Moreover, caffeine interacts with dopaminergic system, which leads to improvements in...
- Neferine and lianzixin extracts have protective effects on undifferentiated caffeine-damaged PC12 cellsby Jingjing Chen on March 8, 2020
CONCLUSIONS: Lianzixin extracts and neferine have protective effects against caffeine-induced damage in PC12 cells, which laid a foundation for finding a new medicine value of Lianzixin.
