Patients prescribed certain drugs will often be told to avoid caffeine, because it can have moderate to severe reactions with their medications. The table above shows some examples of drugs that can have toxic interactions with caffeine. Drug-caffeine interactions can cause toxicity in two ways: either caffeine alters the activity of the drug, or the drug alters the activity of caffeine. In the former case, caffeine typically increases or decreases the molecular response initiated by the drug, or increases the plasma concentration of the drug. If a drug alters the activity of caffeine, the drug typically increases the physiological effects of caffeine, leading to caffeine overdose symptoms As an example, caffeine can increase plasma levels of the drug ropinirole, which can be used in the treatment of the symptoms of Parkinson disease and restless legs syndrome. This would be an example of a change. The antibiotic ciprofloxacin also interacts with caffeine. It can enhance the effects of caffeine, leading to headaches, high blood pressure, restlessness, insomnia, and nervousness, and is an example of a change.
