Brief introduction of caffeine and aminophylline poisoning

Caffeine and aminophylline are both derivatives of xanthine, and their pharmacological effects are similar, but only different in action intensity. Sodium benzoate caffeine (sodium caffeine) is a mixture of caffeine and sodium benzoate, containing 47% ~ 50% anhydrous caffeine; Aminophylline is a complex of theophylline and ethylenediamine. Caffeine poisoning is mostly caused by accidental administration or excessive treatment dosage, and a few are caused by intake of beverages containing a large amount of caffeine; Occasionally, infants and young children are highly sensitive to caffeine, and acute poisoning symptoms may occur due to entering trace amounts. The effective therapeutic dosage of aminophylline is not much different from the toxic dosage, and its toxicity can be caused by excessive dosage of oral administration, rectal administration and intramuscular injection, too short medication interval, too large dosage or too fast intravenous injection, and a few are caused by too high sensitivity to this drug.
