Does 800 mg twice a day of pure green coffee extract interact negatively with synthroid (thyroxine)?

Does 800 mg twice a day of pure green coffee extract interact negatively with synthroid (thyroxine)?

Can caffeine interact with diazepam? Prescribed 5mg diazepam prn for anxiety. Feeling nauseous after 2cups of coffee. Have caffeine sensitivity. Thanks

Diazepam is a: sedative and caffeine is a stimulant. If any thing, they might cancel each other out. However, equal parts uppers and downers don't necessary make you feel good. If you get nauseous after 2 cups of coffee, why not stop at one? Or 1 1/2? Or half decaf, half regular? Or tea (which has a lower concentration of caffeine.)?
