Not likely: It is not likely that drinking red bull will increase your risk of kidney stones. However the chemicals in the drink may have other deleterious effects. You would be better of switching to clean water.

I like this answer very much. Many of us in medicine are baffled by the epidemic of caffeine and sugar addiction these drinks represent. They are, in no way, necessary to health or human nutrition.
