Taper caffeine: One way to know that you may have a caffeine withdrawal headache is if you are waking with a headache and when you drink coffee etc, the headache improves. It is less painful to gradually taper your intake of caffeine over a period of weeks to avoid the withdrawal headache. Increase your intake of water as you decrease the intake of caffeine.
