I'll have cuppa joe with half and half..

Just when I think I have heard it all in medicine, something else comes along to amuse, amaze and trouble...such as: I have seen this twice in the last couple of months. A doctor orders an infusion, YES I SAID INFUSION, of caffeine in order to avoid those pesky headaches from withdrawal of caffeine.  Both were given when someone was having surgery.

Okay....perhaps we should give a nicotine infusion, for smokers,an alcohol infusion, for alkies.  Maybe a chocolate infusion....the possiblities are endless.

First I've heard of that one, too. Hmm. Coffee gives me migraines so I've had to give it up. I do indeed miss caffeine's effects. Wonder: would this bring on pain and puking, too ?~!

This would be good for finals, and multiple twelve hour shifts in a row.
Hmm...

Truth be told caffeine withdrawal headaches are a bitch to deal with. If a patient is NPO this could be a could way to deal with only the surgical pain.
