Ask your doctor: There are many reasons why coffee could be a problem for some people -- such as gastric irritation, and anxiety from the caffeine. If your doctor has made recommendations you don't understand, you need to ask him or her to explain further.

Get enough sleep!: Rather than consume caffeine to stay awake, get enough sleep whether it's 6hrs or 8hrs. Find out how much rest you need so that you don't need a nap the next day. Avoid heavy carbs at lunch. Exercise (even if only briefly) to avoid mid-afternoon lull. Sometimes a few jumping jacks, short walk, some pushups/chinups are all you need to get blood flowing. Stretch (discretely) & ask questions in class.
