Hi this is Dr Stan and I will assist you with your medical question. You have consumed the equivalent of 12 cups of coffee in that period of time. The unwelcome signs you should be looking for are rapid heart rate, difficulty breathing, chest pain. If any of these are present, you should seek immediate medical attention. Having said that, are your children with you? Are they safe? Please respond back to me!

Expert:  Dr Stan replied 7 months ago.

I have not heard back from you, so I hope everything is stable. It sounds like you are feeling some guilt from the actions you took, alcohol and caffeine combination that may have put your children in jeopardy. Should you have any additional questions or comments, I will be happy to assist you.

There is little you can do to flush the caffeine out of your system except to drink lots of water. An Alka Seltzer may also help with the head and stomach. I hear you regarding your "stress" and your devotion to your children. I don't have an immediate solution for you, this can take time and effort.
