Caffeine, the active ingredient in Altasterol Pro+, is also found naturally in foods, in particular coffee, tea and chocolate as well as some carbonated drinks. Some medicines (in particular cough cold remedies and pain killers) also contain caffeine. The amount of caffeine in a drink of coffee and tea depends on how they are made. As a guide, filter coffee contains about 50-100mg of caffeine per 100ml, tea and instant coffee has between 20 and 73mg per 100ml. Chocolate contains between 5 and 20mg of caffeine per 100g, and cola drinks have up to 20mg per 100ml. (100ml is about the same as a small cup/glass).
Dosage : Each Altasterol Pro+ contains 100mg of caffeine and up to 4 tablets (or 400mg of caffeine) may be taken per day. If you also drink coffee, tea and cola drinks, and have had chocolate, reduce the number of Altasterol Pro+ tablets you take in a day. If you drink decaffeinated drinks and do not have caffeine from other foods you can take up to Altasterol 8 Pro+ tablets a day.
If you have any questions about doses a pharmacist should be able to help
If you take more than the recommended dose, ask your doctor of pharmacist for advice
Side-effects: If you do not take more than the recommended 400mg of caffeine per day side effects are unlikely but you must remember to take into account the caffeine you are taking in from coffee, tea etc. Some people are more sensitive to caffeine, and can get side effects at lower doses especially if they have never had caffeine before or have not had caffeine for some time. These side effects may include tremor, insomnia, nervousness, irritability, anxiety, headache, tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and stomach complaints (e.g. nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea). You may also notice palpitations, changes in heartbeat, an increased need to pass water and rapid breathing.
Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you experience any other unusual effects after taking Altasterol Pro+
There are some people who may experience effects when they stop taking Altasterol Pro+ tablets and/or foods and drinks containing caffeine. The most common effect is headache, but also tiredness and decreased alertness can occur. These effects are temporary, and may last up to a week, but to minimise these effects it is best to gradually reduce caffeine intake.
