Salt Information

Caffeine

Pregnancy: C Lactation: L5 Lab: NA Food: NA

Typical usage: Nsaids, Antirheumatoid Drugs

Side Effects: At doses > 600 mg per day, caffeine may cause anxiety, tachycardia (rapid heart rate), palpitations, insomnia, restlessness, nervousness, tremor and headache.

Drug Interaction: Phenytoin and smoking may decrease caffeine levels.Cimetidine, disulfiram, fluoroquinolones, mexiletine, oral contraceptives may increase the caffeine levels, enhancing the effects.

Mechanism Of Action: Caffeine increases energy metabolism throughout the brain but decreases at the same time cerebral blood flow, inducing a relative brain hypoperfusion. Caffeine activates noradrenaline neurons and seems to affect the local release of dopamine which in turm produces the Central Nervous System Stimulant effect.

Mesalazine

Pregnancy: C Lactation: L5 Lab: NA Food: NA

Typical usage: Mild to moderate ulcerative colitis and maintenance of remission.

Side Effects: Bronchospasm, nephrotic syndrome, blood dyscrasias, myocarditis, pericarditis, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, rashes, hair loss, chest pain, leukopenia.

Drug Interaction: Mesalazine is known to interact with other drugs like lactulose. Always consult your physician for the change of dose regimen or an alternative drug of choice that may strictly be required.

Mechanism Of Action: Mucosal production of arachidonic acid metabolites, both through the cyclooxygenase pathways, i.e., prostanoids, and through the lipoxygenase pathways, i.e., leukotrienes and hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acids, is increased in patients with chronic inflammatory bowel disease, and it is possible that mesalazine diminishes inflammation by blocking cyclooxygenase and inhibiting prostaglandin production in the colon.
