Probably not: There are many active ingredients in engery drinks, but taurine, glucuronolactone, and caffeine are the main ones. None of these in a usual energy drink are going to be harmful if taken in moderation (not more than 2 per day). However, taurine can accumulate, although it is not an Amino Acid and therefore does not technical result in stone formation!
