For management of fatigue, orthostatic hypotension, and for the short term treatment of apnea of prematurity in infants.
Caffeine, a naturally occurring xanthine derivative like theobromine and the bronchodilator theophylline, is used as a CNS stimulant, mild diuretic, and respiratory stimulant (in neonates with apnea of prematurity).
