Yes: Yes you will be okay. If you are generally in good health. 18 years old and with no history of heart disease, you will be alright. However this is a good opportunity to point out the dangers of high energy drinks used in excess. They can cause hugh blood pressure, heart palpitations, chest pain and anxiety symptoms. Also trying to counteract the effects with melatonin is not a solution.

Sounds as if you may be trying to wake up with the energy drink and fall asleep with Melatonin. At your age, it would be far wiser to use exercise, light exposure and a healthy diet to regulate your sleep cycles than to get to a place where you are depending on various chemicals (even if they are over the counter and not "drugs" per se)
