EXCEDRIN EXTRA STRENGTH (Brand for MIGRAINE FORMULA) Lifestyle Interactions

Acetaminophen 250mg, Aspirin 250mg, Caffeine 65mg, Oral tablet

Alcohol

· Severity: Major

· Notes for Consumers: Do not drink alcohol while taking this medication. Drinking alcohol while taking this medication increases the risk of liver injury. Contact your care team right away if you experience right upper belly pain, loss of appetite, nausea, light-colored stool, dark yellow or brown urine, yellowing skin or eyes, or unusual weakness or fatigue.

· Notes for Professionals: The risk of developing hepatotoxicity from acetaminophen appears to be increased in patients who regularly consume alcohol. Patients who drink more than 3 alcohol-containing drinks a day and take acetaminophen are at increased risk of developing hepatotoxicity. Acute or chronic alcohol use increases acetaminophen-induced hepatotoxicity by inducing CYP2E1 leading to increased formation of the hepatotoxic metabolite of acetaminophen. Also, chronic alcohol use can deplete liver glutathione stores. Administration of acetaminophen should be limited or avoided altogether in patients with alcoholism or patients who consume alcohol regularly.

Caffeine-containing Foods/Beverages

· Severity: Moderate

· Notes for Consumers: While taking Caffeine-containing medicines, limit the use of foods, beverages (examples: coffee, tea, colas), herbs (examples: guarana, green tea) and other products that contain additional caffeine, such as chocolate and some non-prescription medications or dietary supplements for headache, insomnia, or weight loss. Too much Caffeine can cause effects like nausea, nervousness, or sleeplessness. Some drug products for adults that contain caffeine have about as much caffeine as a cup of coffee.

· Notes for Professionals: Certain foods that contain high amounts of caffeine or theobromine should be limited during the therapeutic use of caffeine in order to limit additive methylxanthine effects. While taking Caffeine-containing medicines, limit the use of foods, beverages (examples: coffee, tea, colas), herbs (examples: guarana, green tea) and other products that contain additional caffeine, such as chocolate and some non-prescription medications or dietary supplements for headache, insomnia, or weight loss.

Grapefruit juice

· Severity: Mild

· Notes for Consumers: Do not significantly alter your grapefruit juice intake while taking medicines containing caffeine. Some reports suggest that intake of grapefruit juice can increase side effects from caffeine. Too much Caffeine can cause effects like nausea, tremor, nervousness, or sleeplessness. If these occur, consider ingesting less caffeine daily.

· Notes for Professionals: Data are limited and conflicting as to whether grapefruit juice significantly alters the serum concentrations and/or AUC of caffeine. Caffeine is primarily a CYP1A2 substrate, and grapefruit juice appears to have but a small effect on this enzyme in vivo. One report suggests that grapefruit juice decreases caffeine elimination by inhibition of flavin-containing monooxygenase, a P450 independent system. This interaction might increase caffeine levels and mildly potentiate the clinical effects and common side effects of caffeine. If side effects appear, patients may need to limit either caffeine or grapefruit juice intake.

Tobacco

· Severity: Major

· Notes for Consumers: Do not smoke or use tobacco products while taking this medication. When used together, your medication may not work as well for you.

· Notes for Professionals: Advise patients who are taking caffeine to avoid smoking tobacco. Smoking tobacco has been observed to increase caffeine clearance by 50% to 70%. Caffeine is a CYP1A2 substrate and smoking tobacco induces CYP1A2.
