Does coffee keep you awake if you drink it at night?

I was just woundering how many people can drink coffee at night and still be able to sleep. I can drink it any time of the day and not have a problem sleeping.

I try to avoid caffeine as much as possible. Once in a great while I will have some soda with it or a cappacino (rarely). Not only do I have trouble sleeping (my legs get restless and I get jittery), but I also get a jumpy heart beat (scary!)........... so YES it keeps me awake all right!

I guess it all depends on how the body reacts to it. I drink caffine almost all day and it does not seem to affect me at all. Thanks for your post.

Not really. I always feel refreshing when i take anything warm. But i dont feel i can stay awake if i take coffee. People say it helps in being awake. But for me, it actually triggeres a good sleep! Lol! Whenever i take hot coffe or milk, I'l get a nice sleep that nigh!

I think I'd addicted to caffeine therefore, it doesn't keep me awake.

I know that I am so addicted to caffine. As a matter of fact I get headaches if I do not drink it in a day. Thanks for sharing.

I had a friend that drank red bull, he ended up having a heart attack. They said alot of his heart attack had to do with the red bull. So be carefull with that drink. Thanks for your post.

Coffee doesn't always work for me. Sugary food and sweet stuff help to keep me awake when I need to pull an all-nighter. I don't know why coffee doesn't work for me.:( Oh well I don't like coffee that much anyway. I only drink the blended coffee drinks. Or if it has a lot of sugar and cream. :)

I have to drink my coffee with sugar and cream as well. Unless I have those flavored creams to put in it. Thanks for your post.

I drink coffee in the mornings when I get to work to wake me up, and it seems to do the job.. But when I drink coffee at night, it seems to help me sleep because it's hot. I don't know.. maybe it has to do with the time of day.. or maybe it has something to do with how active I am at the time I drink it..

I have never thought of it that way. Maybe it could be.

I don't have any problems sleeping at night not matter what I eat or drink. I have always been one of those people who sits down for a few minutes at night, and I 'm out like a light.

I will definitely avoid drinking coffee at night. I once tried and it kept me awake the whole nite while I need to get to office early the next day. The experience was bad because it made me so sleepy.
