    Caffeine withdrawal now considered a mental disorder

    Watch out everyone, caffeine withdrawal is now considered a mental disorder according to psychiatrists because it can affect one's daily life.

    Caffeine withdrawal is now a mental disorder

    PS-I screwed up the title line, can't change it! It IS now considered a mental disorder.

    I'm not sure that considering it a mental disorder is appropriate, unless the reference is simply there to remind psychiatrists and psychologists to check with patients concerning any reported symptoms, in order to ask whether or not they have recently stopped caffeine intake.

    Besides, it's not like there is an anti-caffeine withdrawal drug they can prescribe. More like a "take two aspirin, and I'll see you in a week when the headache should be gone".
