Answer

Patients may be unaware of the caffeine content of various products (energy drinks, herbal medications, alertness-promoting medications) or of the ill effects related to these medications. Patients in the emergency department or in other health care settings who appear to have effects related to caffeine ingestion should be counseled to limit their caffeine intake and to avoid concentrated sources of caffeine.
