Does caffeine cause mood swings for you?

Recently I've been suffering from mood swings -- maybe spending a week high, and then a week depressed. Not serious, but more like ennui. I've had these in the past. In the past I've noticed that cutting out caffeine completely stopped them. But caffeine crept back into my diet, so I've just cut it out again. And the mood swings have gone again.
I know that caffeine can make people irritable, and cause palpitations etc, but I've not read about it causing mood swings. Is there any research mentioning this? Does it happen with you?
