Tobacco and Excedrin Extra Strength Geltab(Acetaminophen)

Tobacco smoke contains substances that may speed the removal of Caffeine from the body. If you start smoking Caffeine may become less effective. Tobacco smokers often drink several caffeinated beverages daily. Just the opposite occurs when someone stops smoking tobacco; if you stop smoking this may increase the amount of Caffeine in the blood and side effects from Caffeine may get worse. Too much Caffeine can cause nausea, nervousness, or sleeplessness, and occasionally other effects like tremor. If you stop smoking tobacco, you may need to lower your Caffeine intake.
Moderate Lifestyle Interaction
Caffeine-containing Foods/Beverages and Excedrin Extra Strength Geltab(Caffeine)

While taking Caffeine products, limit the use of foods, beverages, herbs and other medicines that contain additional caffeine, like coffee, teas, colas, chocolate and some diet pills.
