FDA Approves Much-Debated Alzheimer’s Drug

The approved the drug (marketed as Ad-u-helm) seems “reasonably likely” to benefit Alzheimer’s patients. The drug does not reverse mental decline, only slowing it. The medication will be given as an infusion every four weeks.

Aduhelm will be used to treat the underlying disease, rather than manage symptoms like anxiety and insomnia. This is the first new Alzheimer’s drug in nearly 20 years.

Too much of a good thing?

According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, most healthy adults can safely consume up to 400 milligrams of caffeine each day—the amount you’d get in approximately four to five cups of coffee—individual tolerance can vary greatly.

Among moderate coffee drinkers, the caffeine contained in coffee can trigger serious feelings of restlessness and anxiety.

BUT, drinking too much coffee can have serious effects on not only your physical health, but also your mental wellbeing, as the caffeinated drink can be addictive.

*Anika Christ, RD, CPT, a registered dietitian, and director of client optimization at Life Time, explains that people can build up a tolerance to caffeine in just a few days, noting that she personally recommends that her clients consume just one to two cups of coffee a day to limit their reliance on it.

*Bottom Line: So, if you find yourself feeling sluggish in the morning or anxious throughout the day, scaling back your coffee intake—even by just a cup or two—may provide some serious relief.  https://www.eatthis.com/too-much-coffee-side-effect/
