How come I have to be a certain age to buy 6 hour energy?

How come I have to be a certain age to buy 6 hour energy?

Age limits: Despite what the advertising will lead you to believe, these products contain drugs - mainly caffeine. Caffeine in children and adolescents whose systems are not fully developed yet can cause problems - heart arrhythmias, headaches, tremors and shakes, seizures. I had a 17 y/o in my practice who had two seizures after popping a few 6-hours and not sleeping all night. It just is not worth the risk! ...Read more

If you take half a 5-hour energy, do you stay really alert for 5 hours somewhat more alert for 10 to 15 hours?

If you take half a 5-hour energy, do you stay really alert for 5 hours somewhat more alert for 10 to 15 hours?

Mileage may vary: As a dietary supplement, that product and it's claims are not tested or approved by the fda.

So while it may very well make you more alert, there is no scientific data that I'm aware of that would show how strong the effects are, or how long they would last.

As with any supplement, make sure you include it in the list of medications you report to your doctor if they ask. ...Read more

Are 5 hour energy drinks bad for you?

Are 5 hour energy drinks bad for you?

Intrinsically, No.: If you need to stay awake for 5 hours and have no physiologic reason to avoid stimulants I don't see this as bad per se. However, repeated use or dependency might make you wonder if something else is underlying. Clearly there are many conditions and medications which would make taking stimulants unwise. Mixing other psychoactive drugs including the illegal stuffs and alcohol probably not good. ...Read more

How does 5 hour energy work? Is it safe to take?

Stimulant: 5 hour energy drinks contain Amino Acids said to increase alertness, along with b vitamins plus caffeine. If you get jittery with coffee or other caffeine containing drinks, you will get jittery with 5 hour energy. It is relatively safe, but even the manufacturer recommends taking no more than 2 bottles/day. You may also experience a Niacin "flush" lasting a few minutes. ...Read more

Are five hour energy drinks every day bad for you?

Are five hour energy drinks every day bad for you?

Yes: The problem with 5 hour energy drinks is the amount of vitamins they contain (8333% recommended daily intake of b12). This is an essential, water soluble vitamin that is excreted by your kidney. However, taking this much every day could lead to kidney failure or other effects from an excess of vitamin b12. Anything is toxic to your body in extreme amounts, even water and oxygen! ...Read more

Is a five hour energy every day bad for you in the long run?

Is a five hour energy every day bad for you in the long run?

I would say so: For the most part; any of these "attention getting" products are not very good {short or long term} for you as they usually contain an extreme amount of sugar. If you find yourself having 'energy' problems make sure you start out the day with a healthy breakfast, drink plenty of water, and take a vitamin b complex supplement of your diet is poor. ...Read more

Is matalic acid bad for your body. It's an ingredient in five hour energy drinks.?

It's malic acid: And it probably doesn't do any more harm than any other carbohydrate (which is what it is - a sugar). Energy drinks are primarily "fueled" by caffeine. The additional vitamins, Amino Acids and sugars in it are window dressing and there is no evidence that they add anything to the "energy" derived from the caffeine. You are already on adderal-talk to your doctor about it before taking caffeine. ...Read more

I always feel out of energy for about three hours after I eat lunch. Why is this happening?

I always feel out of energy for about three hours after I eat lunch. Why is this happening?

What are U eating: Meals heavily weighted in carbohydrates are more likely to lead to a quicker let down and this could be both your lunch and your earlier breakfast. Midday activities are often sustained more by your breakfast than your lunch, which is still being processed in your gut. A balanced breakfast with protein, fat and some carbs is more likely to sustain you midday than a quick bagel/etc. ...Read more

I haven't slept for 36 hours, approaching 48 tonight. I go work as normal during day and have energy - why can't I sleep? Using no meds.

I haven't slept for 36 hours, approaching 48 tonight. I go work as normal during day and have energy - why can't I sleep? Using no meds.

Danger zone: If you have not slept in over 36 hours, you're in the danger zone for making serious errors in judgment or driving, etc. The results can be as serious as if you're drunk. Have you been using any recreational stimulants? Do you have any family history of psychiatric illnesses, like bipolar disorder? I strongly suggest you see your physician asap for an evaluation. This can be how mania starts. ...Read more
