Hi, understand your anxiety. The restlessness could be more due to your anxiety. Its unlikely that there will be sustained levels of caffeine in your blood after 12 hours. Some studies indicate that caffeine causes your adrenal glands to release more of adrenaline. This is suppose to cause the stimulant effects of caffeine. You can clear doubts by checking your caffeine levels in the evening. Also, you could make the shift towards less ‘caffeine’ containing drinks like tea, green tea is suppose to have beneficial effects. You could also try decaffeinated coffee and see if it helps. But first you will have deal with anxiety, as this promotes sleeplessness. Take care.
