No pharmacists on this site, just people.  As far as I know, there's no adverse reaction, but try the old Google to see if there's more.  The main contraindication with gingko is blood thinners.

Hi,

    I am a physician and have researched drug-herb interactions in med school.  Ginkgo and caffeine can mutually enhance the other's effects, so you would want to be cautious in the case of hypertension.

Warmly,
