I think it's not just the amount of caffeine present.  It's the delivery method. as well.  It's one reason why some generic drugs don't work as well.

David Blaine drinks kerosene and appears to be "right as rain" also.  Doesn't mean it would be a good thing for me to do.

I have found that different espresso beans will give you different caffeine lifts. The lighter the bean the bigger the lift. I would recommend trying a dark roast. I like Redbird espresso it is very chocolate tasting and the caffeine does not beat me up.

Very little caffeine is lost during roasting, so  light or dark roasted will not have a significant caffeine difference. Robusta beans have almost twice the caffeine content of Arabica, so if it is in the blend, will make the numbers jump.

People always talk about caffeine, but the responce of a body is not from caffeine but also other things in the coffee, whether is drip coffee or espresso.

Besides that, one has to consider the tastes of your coffee, specially for espresso, the bad tastes from the espresso might make my heart painful.  On the other hand, as people knows, espresso has less caffeine but more effects of waking people up.  It means that cafeine is not working alone, there are other things exist and working together with caffeine.

If you don't feel well by drinking espresso more than drip coffee, like pressed coffee, it might be due to your body does not fit the espresso drinking, specially after many times of drinking.  Most people can get used to espresso drinking after several times of try, but may not be so for every one.
