Yes! I can handle one medium cup in the morning. But if I drink more than that (or tim hortons -- yeah a canadian here lol -- it has more caffeine), it really messes with me. After two cups I can feel myself more fidgety, and unable to focus, and I end up talking a lot and ...if i drink too much too fast it tips me quite easily into hypomania

  Yes I have the same exact concern which is why I avoid anything that has caffeine. I also look at labels of anything might have added caffeine to make sure of this as well. Before that I had reactions as you describe.
