A:   Hello,
Thanks for choosing "Ask The Doctor" for posting your query.
The symptoms of caffeine intoxication, that you got by drinking of excess of lucazade, may stay for 24-48 hours. Mostly by morrow morning the symptoms should have settled down. However, if it still persists, then it could be something else like a flue or a gastritis. But mostly by tomorrow morning, you would be fine. Do meet your doctor if the symptoms persist tomorrow as well.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.

Wish you good health!
