Topic: Caffeine MSDS (21 lines)
1) From: Dan Bollinger
Found the MSDS for Caffeine online. Here is what they say to do for an
overdose.  I get a kick out of the first line! Note that they don't simply
say drink more water and dillute the stuff.  :(  Oh, and drinking charcoal
helps.  Hmmm....  A trip to Starbucks is the anitdote?  :)  Dan
FIRST AID- If the person is conscious and not convulsing, induce emesis by
  giving syrup of ipecac followed by water or by gastric lavage using
  activated charcoal whether or not vomiting has occurred. (If vomiting
  occurs keep the head below the hips to prevent aspiration). (Dreisbach,
  Handbook of Poisoning, 12th Ed.). Treat symptomatically and supportively.
  Gastric lavage should be performed by qualified medical personnel. Get
  medical attention immediately.
ANTIDOTE- No specific antidote. Treat symptomatically and supportively.http://lists.sweetmarias.com/mailman/listinfo/homeroast">http://www.erowid.org/chemicals/caffeine/caffeine_data_sheet.shtmlhomeroast mailing listhttp://lists.sweetmarias.com/mailman/listinfo/homeroast
