Re: “Health: Does Coffee Make You Sleepy?

if you are naturally hyper, it can have the opposite effect on you - just like other meds. i was a hyper child and the docs wanted to give me meds for it, but instead i was given coffee by my parents. my school teachers often gave kids coffee when they were too hyper, but that was before giving kids meds was so popular. also, later when my son developed asthma during respiratory illnesses and they wanted to put him on inhalers all the time, i talked to a 87 year old retired pediatrician and he told me to heat up coffee until it steamed, put it in a bowl and have my son breathe the steam with a towel over his head. said thats how they treated asthma before inhalers were used - it dialtes the brochial tubes - works amazingly!
