Caffeine at Moderate Doses Can Inhibit Acupuncture-Induced Analgesia in a Mouse Model of Postoperative Pain

This is an interesting article I read about caffeine inhibiting the pain relieving effects of acupuncture. For both acupuncture practitioners and acupuncture patients, in those very few cases where acupuncture isn’t helping to relieve pain… maybe a good question to ask is “did you have coffee today?” or “How much caffeine do you drink per day?”
