The caffeine will eventually leave your system but in the meantime, keep sipping from a large bottle of water. Sip, not chug! This will reduce the feelings of nausea and keep you feeling too sick.

If you still feel sick after drinking water. You can drink something like Pedialyte to restore your body’s electrolyte imbalance. This is becauseIf you might be caffeine sensitive, and it takes longer for the caffeine to leave your system.
