Our expert says:
Healthy adults can have 3-4 cups of coffee a day. I find it amazing that the coffee you have calms you down because caffeine in coffee is a stimulant and can excitation of the nervous system, palpitations, and insomnia, etc. Please discuss the use of caffeinated coffee with the dr who is treating your heart murmur. You may be better off changing to decaffeinated coffee and rooibos tea.
