Cons:

– Heartburn: A single cup of coffee can trigger this off; so if you’re prone to heartburn you may want to stay away.

– Sleeplessness: Caffeine intake before bed time is a bad idea. And sure, while it helps to keep us up to study for the surprise test, when the effect wears off, your energy levels slump to an all-time low.
