In brief: Stimulant

Caffeine is both a stimulant and a weak diuretic.
Most people are unaffected with the doses of caffeine found in coffee, chocolate and sodas. However, caffeine may trigger underlying cardiac arrhythmia issues ie. Palpitations, svt, atrial fibrillation or ventricular arrhythmias. As a diuretic, it can cause dehydration.
