In brief: No

Caffeine helps prevent dementia in the long run, excessive caffeine is not good - if you are vit b6 deficient the caffeine breaksdown in body to homocysteine which increases inflammation, so either you can increase your vit b6 intake or make up for caffeine by drinking 3 times the oz in water. Theophylline in tea is a stimulant people with irregular heartbeat need to watch the amount they drink.
