Do 5 Hour Energy Drinks Affect Epilepsy
Not good: I have to admit I have used them occasionally, but I don't recommend them. Some are better than others, but they all have a lot of things in them that aren't very good for you and there is no quality control to guarantee they have exactly what it says on the label. Many of them have extremely high levels of caffeine. ...Read more

I drank a rockstar energy drink four hours ago before skateboarding for three hours and i just took a nyquil and i want to know if im gonna die or not?

I am 32 years old, active and healthy but today when I drank a monster energy drink I instantly got chest pain and have had it for a few hours. Should I go to the er?
I vote YES: It's hard to tell what is causing the chest pain (may or may not be the heart). One's own doctor, if available, can offer advice and may want to do an EKG to see how the heart is doing (presuming the pain is mild). If no personal doctor is available, then the ER would be a place to go. If the chest pain is moderate or severe, calling 911 right away would be wise (in case there is heart problem) ...Read more
Does 5 hour energy and other similar energy drinks cause bad sleep patters and panic attacks? I drink coffee and coffee never gives me those symptoms
Energy drinks: Yes, it is quite possible. Many of these "energy drinks" contain much higher levels of caffeine than in a cup or two of coffee. Additional ingredients may also trigger reactions in sensitive individuals. Avoid these drinks, and consider getting some exercise (like brisk walking) if you need a brief pickup in the afternoon. Any caffeine after 6 PM can trigger sleep problems. Good luck! ...Read more
