Side Effects Of Inhaling Gas Fumes
Bad: I assume you are talking about abusing fumes by inhaling, rather than incidentally inhaling a small amount of fumes when filling your gas tank. Inhalant abuse is EXTREMELY dangerous, with acute effects of feeling high, headache and passing out. You can become addicted after inhaling just a few times, and permanent brain damage can occur after 5-10 heavy inhalations. DON'T DO IT. ...Read more

Maybe: You may be sensitive to caffeine and that was quite a bit of caffeine. If you are needing a stimulant you may not be getting enough sleep or eating in a healthy way.

Is activated charcoal effective against food poisoning, and gas etc? Are there any side effects from taking it?
SaveItForABarbeque: Activated charcoal adsorbs lots of stuff but is not used for"food poisoning"unless due to a toxic chemical, not the type of food poisoning from bacteria or viruses.

And if you take medications it will adsorb them ...Read more

Why is no2 said to cause increased ponv in surgery but everyone I talked to that has laughing gas said they had zero side effects from it?
Depends: When used with local anesthetic in dentistry you probably are not going to get the same reaction as if you had it with other types of anesthesia.
