Answer

Outpatient follow-up with a psychiatrist is compulsory for any patient after an intentional caffeine overdose. Outpatient follow-up with a psychiatrist may also be considered for patients who have a comorbid psychiatric illness (eg, depression) or extenuating circumstances (eg, excessive life stress) that may have contributed to their caffeine toxicity.
