Caffeine Overview

Caffeine is a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant of the methylxanthine class.[10] It is the world's most widely consumed psychoactive drug.[11] Unlike many other psychoactive substances, it is legal and unregulated in nearly all parts of the world. There are several known mechanisms of action to explain the effects of caffeine. The most prominent is that it reversibly blocks the action of adenosine on its receptors and consequently prevents the onset of dro...

Dewitt Pills for kidney and bladder

I was told by a doctor that i have a kidney or bladder problem which seems to be giving me back aches when i try to sit or stand for long periods. I have heard of Dewitts kidney pills and would like to give that a try before things get worse. Can you help me to locate this product? ## I am sorry, but DeWitt's Kidney and Bladder pills are not longer being manufactured. I can't even find a listing that states exactly what they contained, but many of these old remedies had to be removed from the market, due to the fact that they often contained medications that are now considered prescription only drugs. What has your doctor suggested trying? If you are looking for some natural options that may help, there are several that many people swear by, that are known to clean out the kidne...

Blackjack pills

It's a black pill, says blackjack on it ## This is one of those OTC weight loss/energy supplement pills. ## Please dont take blackjacks!!!! i took one and it almost sent me to the er. i was in bad shape. my heart was thumping, i was out of it, and i was shaking terribly!! believe me, i was on a trip i didn't want to be on. ## Blackjacks are great if you have a caffeine tolerance, they're very strong. But if you're not used to caffeine I advise you stay away from them. However, if it takes more than one energy drink to make you happy then these are for you. BEWARE- very strong, loss if appetite ## I agree. I thought that I was going to have to go to the ER. It is the worst feeling ever!! ## i friend gave me one earlier today and i am having severe shaking, cold sweats, an...

White oblong pill brown specks no imprint or markings

I found five pills in my daughters room, all the same. they are oblong, about 3/4 in long, 1/4 in wide, and 1/4 in thick. they are an off white color with brown specks on the outside, but the inside is all white... what the heck could this be and is it harming her?? ## Hello, Kayla! How are you? I'm sorry, but with no markings, it may be difficult to definitively identify it. It's not a prescription tablet, since they are all required to have markings, but that does leave it open to many over the counter possibilities. Have you tried asking her about it? I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else recognize these tablets? ## They are called speckled birds , it a caffeine pill sold over the counter mostly at truck stops. ## I took half a...

thick white round pill no markings

found it in my teenage sons pocket in a brown glass bottle ,the pill is 3mm in diam and 2mm thick ,the bottle is 1inch long, what could it be? ## What markings (most pills have numbers and or letters on both sides) are on it and is it scored(does it have a line down the middle?) You might be able to identify it that way. ## Since the post title states that it has no markings, we can rule it out as being a U.S. prescription tablet, since they are all required to have markings to enable their identification. That leaves it open to being something that's available over the counter, since they aren't required to have imprints, a foreign medication or an illicit substance. Have you asked your son about it? ## It's most likely 100mg caffeine. I have a box of the same pills matchin...

az 076 yellow pill

Round and yellow ## AZ 076 is an over the counter item, containing 200mgs of Caffeine, commonly sold as NoDoze, a stimulant used to help with alertness. Some common side effects may include: nausea, insomnia and anxiety. ## Is 200 mg a lot of caffeine? ## I Googled it and it says the average cup of coffee (8 oz) contains about 95 mg of caffeine. So 200 mg of caffeine is more than 2 cups of coffee.

trimeth sulfa ds

I'm on the sulfameth/trimethop medication right now for the treatment of mild ancne. Why should I avoid sunlight? I went to a tenning bed and had no changes. ## this medicine can give you a headache because it makes you more sensitive to light. ## What may happen if combined with caffeine? ## It can make you heat/light sensitive, which could result in your burning, much sooner than usual, you could also develop sun poisoning, skin rashes, and etc. Sulfamethoxazole with Trimethoprim can also cause elevated heart rate, and nervousness, as side effects, so combining it with caffeine could worsen those issues. Other side effects may include nausea, diarrhea, and headache. Is there anything I can help with?
