It has also been used medicinally as a diuretic to relieve headache, and to prevent sleepiness, and as a antidote, to poisoning from morphine and some snake venoms. The effect of coffee on wakefulness is believed to have been discovered by an Ethiopian goatherd, who first noticed its effect on his goats. In homeopathic use, it is said to have a relaxing effect on people who are overexcited, oversensitive, wired up, or unable to sleep after receiving either good or bad news. The stimulating effect of sudden strong emotions has in fact been compared to the effect of drinking coffee. A homeopathic dose of Coffea can help counteract the wakeful effect of coffee drunk during the day.
