How to help headaches after drinking coffee?

I don't drink coffee often, but when I do, it gives me a very bad headache/nausea about 3-4 hours after drinking it. I did just switch to decaf but I read about all these other negative side effects of decaf (drinking chemicals, could lead to other health problems, etc.). What can I do about the headaches after drinking regular coffee? Is there a way to ask the barista to cut down on the caffeine?


I really like the taste of coffee so that's why I want to find something that works.

    NO. There isn't a way to reduce the caffeine in already bought coffee. Your barista is NOT a wizard they do not have magic powers. You can buy a lower strength coffee and make it for yourself. 

    It sound like you are sensitive to caffeine and it's effects and should probably avoid it. Drink decaf and get over it.

    The answer is to stop drinking coffee.

    Two options for less caffeine:    decaf or consume less.

    If you're ordering espresso, you could ask for half a shot instead of a full shot.

    Did it occur to you to drink something else instead of drinking something that makes you sick?
