When I go for tests, like tomorrow ( a MRCP) I will be NPO from midnight. going without food doesn't affect me,
but not having coffee usually result in a migraine, pretty bad ones at that. Does anyone else suffer from this, and
would it be worth taking caffeine tablets with a sip of water?

Black coffee might be allowed.

No, they said nothing but a sip of water to take my meds. It's a pancreas function test, so I guess it's important
to be empty!

Don't know what time zone you're in, but can you drink some coffee before bed? Maybe getting in some caffeine as late as you can would help?

Drinking coffee or tea is like pouring acid into the body.  Soda and milk respond in the body the same way.  I would avoid them at all costs, all the time.  Once you wean yourself off you get used to not having the caffeine (also improves mood swings, etc).

I've always figured if I could take my meds with a sip or two of water, then I could take it with a sip or two of black tea (or in your case black coffee) Still liquid. I wouldn't push it by taking more than a few sips but it might be just enough, especially if you made it really strong.

Dunny, wish I could send you some Cajun Creole coffee. The kind you can stand a spoon up in will give you a caffeine OD that will last till your test is over , then you can go back to the weak stuff. But , there is a chance of becoming addicted ...
