This year four different psychiatrists have strongly recommended me to completely avoid coffee. I'm under treatment with a combination of sertraline and mirtazapine. But in the scientific medical journals I couldn't find any consensus on this topic. What has your doctor recommend you about coffee?

Yes there has been research on the effects of caffeine as a stimulant
