caffeine content: quick reference

29 Apr

Need a quick reference for the usual caffeine content of that new energy drink or wild-sounding pill that your patient has been taking (possibly to excess)?  The internet will provide:

 

Death By Caffeine:

check out the website, which will tell you how much of a particular drug/food it will take to kill you, based on your weight.  Fun.

For some references on caffeine content, check out the top tabs, which can lead you by category (coffee brands, energy drinks, foods, etc) to your desired target.

For example:

  • 12 oz Diet Pepsi: 35 mg caffeine
  • 8.5 oz Red Bull : 80 mg
  • 20 oz Tim Hortons coffee: 200mg
  • 2 oz 5-hr Energy: 200mg
  • Excedrin: 65mg
  • Hershey Kisses: 1mg (per piece)

While away the hours.  Learn something new, like the fact that Stay Puft Caffeinated Marshmallows exist (100mg per mallow).
