    It's more of a medical question, but there's no forum for that, so I'll give this one a shot.

    Let's say you drink a whole pot of dark roast coffee. How long will it take for your blood pressure to get back to normal?

    Depends, but a guestimate is about 5 to 7 hours. Effects have been known to last for up to 18 though.

    Could be more or less dependent on brand and amount of caffeine.

    drank it all at once, like straight from the pot? Or over a couple of hours?

    Over the course of an hour or two.

    What I actually had was two large energy drinks in about an hour and a half, but I figured more people would be able to work with the coffee as an example. A pot of coffee is about as much caffeine as two large energy drinks, not counting all the other crap in them which I figure doesn't weigh in as much.

    The other day I was wondering what would happen to a bro if he drank an entire pot of coffee with mad sugar and cream.

    I wonder how cracked out you'd be.

    you should have just said two energy drinks, coffee is totally different


    energy drinks have stuff like l-taurine and guarana and tons of there shit that would affect your blood pressure


    you'll probably be ok after a few hours

    I drink a couple cups a day and I have HBP. Seem unaffected by it. I stay away from energy drinks though
