Hi Hilkie
you should try to take in not more than 200-300mg of caffein per day - which is 3-4 cups of coffee. Side effects of taking too much caffein are Insomnia, Nervousness, Restlessness, Irritability, Nausea or other stomach problems, Fast or irregular heartbeat, Muscle tremors, Headaches and Anxiety. If coffee keeps you awake you should try not to drink any coffee after 16h00 in the afternoon.
A cup of coffee has the following caffeine (mg) amounts:
