1. With irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

It’s no secret that caf­feine increas­es the fre­quen­cy of going to the toi­let, and also increas­es the like­li­hood of diar­rhea. For those who suf­fer from irri­ta­ble bow­el syn­drome, this is not a very use­ful prop­er­ty.

2. With an overactive bladder

It is best to avoid drinks such as cof­fee before the trip. Again, fre­quent uri­na­tion.

3. With gastroesophageal reflux

Caf­feine weak­ens the low­er esophageal sphincter—the valve between the esoph­a­gus and stomach—which caus­es acidic stom­ach con­tents to enter the esoph­a­gus. So-so news. But peo­ple with this symp­tom can still drink decaf­feinat­ed cof­fee or low decaf­feinat­ed drinks.

4. Children under 12

If cof­fee makes you a lit­tle ner­vous, then for a child under twelve years old, it’s just some kind of night­mare. The heart­beat becomes more fre­quent, the feel­ing of anx­i­ety inten­si­fies, it is dif­fi­cult for the child to con­cen­trate. Even indi­ges­tion may begin. There­fore, no mat­ter how the child asks for cof­fee, hav­ing seen enough of you, it is bet­ter to pre­pare a mug of cocoa for him.

5. With epilepsy

There is a small study that shows that drink­ing large amounts of caf­feine leads to an increase in epilep­sy attacks. If you have this dis­ease, it is best to talk to your doc­tor about whether you can drink cof­fee at all. Should­n’t it be replaced with some­thing else?

6. During diarrhea

If you have diar­rhea, it is bet­ter not to drink cof­fee, and in gen­er­al it is bet­ter not to touch hot drinks, as they stim­u­late the intestines very much.

7. With a high level of anxiety, a tendency to panic attacks

Caf­feine is a stim­u­lant that increas­es anx­i­ety in some peo­ple. If this is about you, you should def­i­nite­ly reduce the use of this drink.

8. For sleep disorders

Insom­nia should not be washed down with cof­fee and think­ing that every­thing will pass. In order for sleep to be healthy, you should not abuse caf­feine, or even not drink it at all six hours before bed­time.

9. In case of glaucoma

Intraoc­u­lar pres­sure (IOP) increas­es in peo­ple with glau­co­ma if they drink cof­fee.

This is the data of a study con­duct­ed by Chi­nese sci­en­tists. Avail­able data have shown that caf­feine affects IOP dif­fer­ent­ly in dif­fer­ent groups of peo­ple. In healthy peo­ple, IOP did not change when tak­ing caf­feine, while in patients with glau­co­ma, IOP increased sig­nif­i­cant­ly.

10. For heart disease

Caf­feine, which is abun­dant in cof­fee, rais­es blood pres­sure and increas­es heart rate, which is not good for those with heart dis­ease.

11. During pregnancy

In this case, the ban is not com­plete. Preg­nant women can still drink cof­fee, but you should lim­it your­self to two mugs a day. Oth­er­wise, the risk of mis­car­riage increas­es.

12. When breastfeeding

Caf­feine is a stim­u­lant and diuret­ic, so you can get dehy­drat­ed while feed­ing. Avoid caf­feine while lac­tat­ing.
