Caffeine: is the main ingredient in many headache remedies. That is because it works for migraine in particular. The problem arises when one becomes dependant on caffeine (and experiences caffeine withdrawal headaches). Another consideration is that caffeine is a fairly powerful antidepressant. (so people can get hooked by two different mechanisms)

Not in moderation: One to two cups of coffee in the morning is not bad for you. It may even have some health benefits because it has antioxidants in it. Excessive coffee consumption can increase your blood pressure, make you anxious and interfere with sleep.

Caffeine : In and of itself caffeine is not bad for us. You may be especially sensitive to it and so may need to moderate your intake. Everyone is different. Some folks, for example, like it in the a.m. to get going but avoid it later in the day so they can sleep,. Peace and good health.
