All good advice. And I see Hooli's article up above, which is also good...if not quite the same thing. From an emergency perspective, "Overdose" it a one time (or short period of time) intake at toxic levels. What is being described here is more of a chronic issue. Still not healthy (i too have a dr. pepper addiction), but not likely to be lethal. Caffeine's biggest issue is the constant affect on your heart. That much cardiac stimulation overworks your heart for decreased long term function and increased cardiac stress.

Bah, this statement is the quicker, universal pisser-offer. Do not try and word your statement for your next pain or attention seeking question. When I am triaging you, I need raw data, not the fluff you choose to accompany with it.
Sorry, bit of a rant there...
