Drink Energy Drinks While On Doxycycline
Hard to say: I find no nutritional or other value in "energy" drinks. That said, there is no good way to answer your question. If I listen to a patient often enough in his/her life I will often hear an innocent heart murmur that has no significance. They have nothing wrong with their heart & the murmur just reflects blood flow. If they had any heart defect related murmur, such drinks would be a bad idea ...Read more

Does anyone know if the energy drink redline could be the cause for hyperparathyroidism? Or hypothyroidism? It contains camp.
Energy drinks: Putting camp into a drink will not do anything more than putting in lots of caffeine, which stimulates camp. It's an energy drink. It will not affect your hormones, although if you are already hyperthyroid it can worsen the symptoms. See an endocrinologist to determine if indeed there is anything wrong with your parathyroid or thyroid. ...Read more

I'm 16, am 5'7 & 1/2 feet tall, and weigh 127lbs. I drink one regular nos energy drink every day at lunch on school days. Is there any danger to this?
Not normally: One/day is normally safe as long as you do not take in other stimulants and you do not have other health issues such as a cardiac arrhythmia. Singulair (montelukast) can cause tremors and stimulant drinks can make this worse. Stunting of growth is possible but research is going back and forth. If you are playing after school sports, I would recommend cutting back due to cardiac and dehydration issues. Goodluck! ...Read more
Can drinking an energy drink a day cause serious issues? I don't drink a lot of water. Once or twice a week. Stool just had a pinch of blood, 1st time
They're unrelated: Energy drinks usually have lots of caffeine (which can affect your heart esp if you have an underlying condition, and affects sleep) and sugar (a problem esp if you're diabetic). The stool having blood may just be from a hemorrhoid or an anal fissure if fresh blood but if it continues and esp if you're over 40/ have a family history of cancer/ have anemia should go see your medical provider. ...Read more
I have a 1st degree av block according to a ekg I took but since ive been drinking energy drinks everyday for 2 years. I wanna stop but I cant. HELP!
Taking zyprexa (olanzapine)?: First degree AV block has nothing to do with compulsive use of energy drinks. Zyprexa (olanzapine) is a medicine used to treat compulsive behaviors. I urge you to discuss this issue with the doctor who prescribed Zyprexa (olanzapine) for you. Forget your EKG. ...Read more
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
