Caffeine Induced Psychosis
A 47-year-old successful male farmer with no history of psychiatric hospitalization presented with a 7-year history of depression, diminished sleep to as little as 4 hours/night, poor energy, explosive anger, decreased concentration, decreased appetite, anhedonia, and feeling of worthlessness.
Seven years before his first presentation, the patient had developed the conviction that people were plotting against him to drive him off of his farm and take his land. At least twice, when he had found dead livestock on his farm, the patient thought that it was part of the plot against him and would entertain no other possibilities.
The patient interpreted tire tracks in the driveway as belonging to the car of individuals trying to take his land, even though other more plausible possibilities existed.
According to the patient’s wife, the subject interpreted many everyday occurrences as evidence of the plot. Convinced of a plot against him, he installed surveillance cameras in his house and on his farm but never caught anything that would support his conviction that as part of the plot people were coming onto his farm at night.
The patient reported drinking less than one case of beer annually. However, ~7 years before presentation, he had sharply increased his consumption of coffee from 10–12 cups/day to ~36 cups/day, a change in coffee consumption corroborated by his wife who made much of the coffee for him at home.
There was no history of psychosis before the increase in coffee consumption, but after the increased consumption, the patient developed paranoia. At presentation, the patient reported drinking >1 gallon of coffee/day.

*raises coffee cup*
It has been kind of an emotional one, Thanks Sled!
I've been looking for an Edmund Fitzgerald video for about an hour and can't find the one I wanted! That is a bummer, but I ended up drinking a few cups in the process
Even my paranormal detector is reacting to the coffee this morning. It keeps telling me there is a spirit at 10 yards...*looks around* Must be attracted to the coffee
