Pro Plus contains caffeine which is a stimulant that reduces tiredness and increases alertness. This leads to it being able to be used to improve your focus and concentration. It comes in the form of tablets and is suitable for adults and children aged 16 years and over.

Pro Plus has been used to provide a helping hand to students, drivers, people working long hours, athletes, new parents, gamers, and many others. You don’t need a prescription for Pro Plus, you can buy it from a pharmacy. Although this brand is not sold in the US, similar products such as No Doz are available.

How do I take it?

You can take one or two tablets when needed. However, do not take more than two tablets in three hours, and do not take more than eight tablets per day. Each tablet contains 50 mg of caffeine. Therefore, eight tablets will provide 400 mg of caffeine which is the maximum amount of caffeine you can safely consume in a day.

If you take any other caffeine-containing products or drinks, try to ensure your overall daily consumption does not exceed 400 mg.

How does caffeine work?

Caffeine works by blocking the actions of a natural chemical called adenosine, which is produced by the body as part of the process to signal tiredness. Pro Plus usually takes about 45 minutes before it starts to work.

Should anyone avoid taking it?

Do not take Pro Plus if you are allergic to caffeine or another ingredient listed in the product. Pro Plus is not suitable for children under 16, and you should avoid taking Pro Plus if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or have any medical conditions such as high blood pressure, anxiety, or problems with the rhythm of your heart.

If you take any prescription, over-the-counter or herbal medicines, ask your doctor or pharmacist to check if they are safe to take alongside Pro Plus.

Are there any side effects?

As with all medications, some people may experience side effects.

If you are not used to caffeine, you are more likely to experience side effects.

These can include nausea and vomiting, difficulty sleeping, nervousness, irritability, tremor, ringing in the ears, an increased need to urinate, headache, heart palpitations, and diarrhea.

You should speak with your doctor or pharmacist if you are concerned about any side effects.
