Does chocolate contain caffeine?

I was on an antibiotic for bv, and it messed up my stomach and my bladder...now I am on a different antibiotic to help my bladder and some stomach medicine....My doctor said NO caffeine (I dont drink pop, coffee, or tea anyways) But my dad said chocolate had caffeine in it, and I just ate a chocolate cookie........

    Yes there is. So if you must avoid it completely until your antibiotics are done, then you need to avoid chocolate as well as coffee, tea, and most sodas.

    yes it does

    Chocolate contains a variety of substances, some of which have an effect on body chemistry. These include:

    Sugar

    Theobromine, the primary alkaloid in cocoa and chocolate[75] and partly responsible for chocolate's mood-elevating effect

    Tryptophan, an essential amino acid and precursor to serotonin

    Phenethylamine, an endogenous alkaloid sometimes described as a 'love chemical;[76] it is quickly metabolized by monoamine oxidase-B and does not reach the brain in significant amounts

    Caffeine, present only in very small amounts[75]

    small amounts, which means your cookie probably had barely any

    Most chocolate does contain Caffeine, but small amounts shouldn't hurt you. Just don't get to carried away at eating it. Too much would be a bad thing.

    Good Luck

    Yes it does, but i'm pretty sure it doesn't have much.

    If you still want chocolate, try white chocolate.It's still chocolate, but it has almost no caffeine since it has not much cocoa in it.

    Yes but, I would say that it's ok that you ate that cookie just don't eat any more.
