In brief: Too much caffeine

sets you up to be moody.
Drinking one cup in the Am and pm when you take sedating meds for bipolar/depression/schizophrenia can help elevate your energy level to cope with the day. Caffeine is tricky and should be monitored so it doesn't get out of hand. Hope this helps. Drink lots of water this also wakes you up and energizes you.
