Methylxanthine Toxicity Syndrome

Methylxanthine toxicity is one of the most common findings nowadays. The most common clinical symptoms we see are joint dysfunction or chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia, adrenal fatigue, liver problems, and heart symptoms, but they can be anything. Caffeine belongs to the methylxanthine family, which also includes theobromine, theophylline, and paraxanthine. These compounds are present in coffee, tea, chocolate, coke, yerba mate, acai, and guarana.


We found that approximately 80% of patients cannot tolerate the caffeine family. If you experience more symptoms from the caffeine family, we recommend avoiding this type of product for at least one month; after that, some people are able to consume caffeine-containing products in small amounts, and some cannot. It is common to experience withdrawal symptoms for up to 2 weeks after eliminating caffeine. Greens, Reish, Carbonated Bamboo, and Vitamin B may help with methylxanthine toxicity syndrome.
