Ok: Tea and coffee and water are completely ok. There is no need for prescriptions. Without sugar all are very good for you. Much better than coke and pepsi and so on.

Water: Most people do not realize that tea is a diuretic which makes the body lose water. But it is a stimulant also. So to stay awake, try tea. To stay hydrated, drink water.

Herbal Teas such as Red Rooibos that do not contain caffeine are an exception. They are very good antiinflammatories and very good at hydration. I brew mine and drink it cold as I would southern tea. you can flavor it with Sweet Leaf brand of stevia as well
