Not doing it: Energy drinks are simply high doses of caffeine, which is not good for people in excess. Energy and stamina do not come out of a pill bottle, or for that matter 5 cups of coffee, although that can be a temporary solution. The long-term answer is good diet, exercise, staying at healthy weight, getting adequate sleep. A therapeutic multivitamin may help if your diet isn't what it should be. ...Read more

Caffeine & sugar: Read labels. Your "energy" drink likely contains a fair amount of caffeine & loads of sugar calories.
