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

Caffeine & sugar: Read labels. Your "energy" drink likely contains a fair amount of caffeine & loads of sugar calories. Have you noticed how you "crash" after the caffeine and sugar wear off a few hours after drinking the product? Instead, eat healthy, get plenty of sleep, and exercise--you'll not only feel better and well rested but your daily performance and outlook will improve. Read more
Hyper: Prednisone already makes many people feel "bouncy". Throw in a stimulant and you may not feel well at all. You may also get indigestion or stomach pain.

No-at least not soon: Like all of us, you will die sooner or later (hopefully not for 70-80 years) but what you took will not kill you.

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

My mom keeps giving my child small amounts of rip it energy drinks, watered down. I don't want to cause an argument Bc of drink but can this b harmful?
Yes it can be: "small amounts" to an adult are NOT small amounts to a child. Energy drinks are primarily caffeine, which can have effects on children's growth, and unknown effects on the rest of their health. Tell your mother to STOP, and if she won't, you have to decide on whether you can allow your child to be with her. A family member or therapist may be needed to mediate this family problem.

Potentially yes: Firstly, if you do not have adequate energy to perform your daily tasks, it is likely that there is something else wrong - diet, exercise, other health problems, and that the way to fix that is to fix that. Secondly, they are mostly caffeine, and excessive caffeine is not good for us, and can cause anxiety, raise blood pressure and pulse, cause insomnia. Very high doses can cause serious harm. Read more
