Can I drink coffee if I'm sick?
I'm wondering if coffee has any negative (or positive) effects. I think I have the flu now. Does it change my metabolism (I've been going to the bathroom non-stop)? Improve things? I feel the need for caffiene and was wondering.

have to tell you...would suggest staying away from it...if you have the need for caffine...then I suggest tea...with a spot (couple teaspoons of honey)...that should do the trick for you...


iIf you want to puke up coffee then go for it. Otherwise, stick to clear liquids...Ginger Ale and 7 Up. Stick to the B.R.A.T Diet for a few days. Get Better :)

Sure.....as long as you don't throw it up. Ha-Ha-Ha-. But no, go for it, when i was sick, i would always have my coffee in the morning, noon, and night.

Coffee may cause you to have loose bowels. It further dehydrates you. Stay away from coffee and tea while you have the flu. Drink plenty of water and clear juices.

caffeine will clog up your system flush out the germs with 3 litres water a day

Try a little bit, it shouldn't hurt you. But if you start feeling sick again afterward then you'll know it probably wasn't a good idea.
I drink coffee all the time, even when I'm sick and it has no ill affects on me.

If going to the bathroom means you have diarrhoe, coffee would make this worse. Have weak tea instead.

Caffeine will increase your diarrhea and urination.
It's a diuretic.

if your body is in need you need to drink some do it in moderation ;if one listen to your body it tells us what we need

Coffee can actually be a laxative for some people and due to the caffeine it is also a diuretic which will make you pee more often. Since you're already and sick and seem to be going to the bathroom nonstop if you want to continue drinking the coffee then you also need to replenish your body with water. That way you don't become dehydrated.

Although coffee may raise your temperature - a good thing, insofar as the enzyme systems that fight viruses operate more efficiently at a higher temperature - it does interfere with immune health. After all, the coffee plant produces caffeine as an insect repellant. You should try out something less powerful like Yerba Mate tea, which is also alkalinzing. A good thing when your sick.

It does have caffeine in it which is a vasoconstrictor and will speed up your heart rate. However, coffee has been shown recently to have some very advantages affects. Go ahead knock yourself out. Hope you get well soon.

Coffee does effect your metabolism, especially if you drink it straight. Most of the positive effects from coffee are short term due to the constricting of blood vessels which allows them to move rapidly through the blood stream. As for the effect it will have on someone with the flu. Just can't honestly say, depends on the person, the illness, all kinds of factors. Give it a try, but I wouldn't make it too strong..

Personally, I think coffee is good for you. There have been many studies that show it. If you're craving caffine, I wouldn't think it would hurt you to drink a little. I'd leave the cream out though because it sometimes causes stomach problems.

Two things: coffee is a diuretic, which means it makes you want to pee (increases your kidney output), and caffeine will dehydrate you and take the place of better fluids you could be drinking that will help you feel better. So, no, coffee is not the best thing to be drinking when you are sick. Tea is better, but still go easy on anything caffeinated. Best to stick to juice and water.
