Increased concentration helps the body absorb analgesics Large Amounts: Anxiety, Irritability, Insomnia, Changes in physical coordination, Dependence, Withdrawal symptoms Similarities between nicotine and caffeine

Both contain a tertiary amine group

Both contain five member ring made of carbon and nitrogen atoms

Both contain six member rings of carbon and nitrogen Differences between nicotine and caffeine

Caffeine contains two amide groups, nicotine doesn’t

Contain an alkenes group, caffeine has one, nicotine has two

In caffeine the six and five member rings are fused while the nicotine has two

Caffeine contains two carbonyl groups and two amide groups.
