take a cup of coffee make you sleepy

September 12, 2011 3:40am CST
Well I don't know if my situation is worse. Actually i'm not used to drink coffees often. Instead, I tend not drink coffee at all... But there are times when I was force myself to drink coffe, I feel sleepy and then fall asleep afterwards. At night when I want to awake until dawn for some works, the coffe does not take effect on me even many times I had take cups of coffees. What do you think about this problem?

When I drink coffee at night I go to sleep too. In fact, I get to have a very sound sleep after drinking coffee. But in the morning I feel very energized and very fresh full of energy. Thereafter, towards afternoon I begin to get tired and loss steam. So I think in my case there is a delayed reaction after drinking coffee.

Hi, markthaniel1407. Welcome to myLot! I have the same issue here. I drink coffee every now and then and I still get very sleepy. I don't know why. Coffee is supposed to keep one wide awake and at alert. Maybe it is because I usually drink decaffeinated coffee, that is probably why. This type of coffee, does not make me sleepy, because it does not have any caffeine in it.

That's abnormal huh, since you are not really a coffee drinker. As for my case, I really am a coffee drinker, so, my system is already used or immune to the coffee that it doesn't have an effect of me. I can still sleep even if I drink coffee.

It's actually the first time that i have known a person who feels sleepy when they drink coffee. Coffee is supposed to perk us up or make us awake and that's what i feel when i drink coffee. I would drink coffee whenever i feel sleepy at work, and voila, i am again awake, after that.
