Dear Ronel
Besides being a stimulant, caffeine is also a diuretic, so it will increase urination. Moderate caffeine intake should not make you urinate all the time, but if you drink endless cups of coffee or drink caffeine-containing energy drinks or use an over-the-counter slimming pill that contains high levels of caffeine, then you may find that you have to go to the toilet a lot.
