How Caffeine Can Hurt Your Potential for Success - http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/244079

"Caffeine triggers the release of adrenaline – a hormone which triggers a fast response. This fight-or-flight mechanism is great if you’re being chased by a bear, but not so great when you’re responding to a curt email from an angry customer. When adrenaline is released, your brain is put into a hyper-aroused state, causing you to circumvent rational thinking in favour of a fast response."

Wait. I thought caffeine was an adenosine receptor agonist. Does it also release adrenaline? Is this true? I feel concerned. I need more sources. MORE SOURCES.

Okay, I looked into it a little, and I was wrong. I am not a drug expert. But caffeine is an adenosine receptor ANTagonist. That's still not related to adrenaline.

How many functions can caffeine have!?! I don't believe this is true.

I think you is great.

I am so rusty on this stuff lately - plus I have a WINEgraine right now.

I remember adenosine from college.

I clearly have not made the complete chain-link through adenosine, but I have been convinced otherwise that caffeine increases adrenaline - however - for at least 1/2 year.

I can post-it to myself to keep heads up on this question, and I am sure i can have an answer to the adenosine question sooner or later.

But, if you look at the general symptoms, they are all autonomic-like, and sometimes stress-invoking. Granted, the autonomic is not directly linked to adrenalin, but it is certainly analogous to it.

Hurry up and get through your phd nonsense so you can come to live with me in a trailer park and we can discover radium.
