Before having too much caffeine, it's worth noting that it may make your hangover worse. According to Driftaway Coffee, caffeine narrows blood vessels, which increases blood pressure. So, if you wake up with a headache, caffeine could make your head hurt even more.
It is also is a diuretic, and it's easy to become dehydrated if you drink too much. If you do decide you need some caffeine to wake up, make sure you pair it with a lot of water.
