Caffeine aggravates anxiety and panic attacks, a little caffeine is good to start the day, its the excessive caffeine that is bad for you. So if you get panic attacks or anxiety attacks, but on the coffee, or drink decaffeinated coffee.
We need to be more aware that caffeine causes/exacerbates anxiety and other mental health condition.
Just read the 170+ pages of comments of people trying to get off caffeine here; http://coffeefaq.com/site/node/11
And the research referenced here; http://caffeineevaluation.blogspot.co.uk/
Many people feel they cannot 'get going' in the morning without caffeine; in reality they are just experiencing withdrawal from not having ingested any over the previous hours.
A key point is the research showing anxiety sufferers can be very sensitive to caffeine; some people think 'it can't be the caffeine, I only have 1 cup a day', but for them that could be the key issue in their anxiety.
Withdrawal is not easy (especially first 2 weeks, when anxiety actually goes up), but is possible.
How about cutting all caffeine for 30 days and seeing how you feel? Like this lady here is doing; http://stopcaffeine.blogspot.co.uk/
