Drinking energy drinks give me diarrhea, & a lot of people I know get diarrhea from it as well. What ingredient in energy drinks can give you diarrhea?
Lots of stuff: Many ingredients in energy drinks can cause diarrhea; different people have different sensitivities, so it’s hard to say which one actually causes it in any individual.

One team doctor told me that those big energy drink barrels you see on the sidelines at games are usually full of water, not the advertised product. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Does drinking water with an added flavor enhancer w/ caffeine, like mio energy, defeat the purpose of drinking water?
Water, Not alcohol!: Unless you are in an environment or daily perform activities that predispose to dehydration, when a doctor asks you to liberalize fluids he/she means for you to drink lots of water and non-sugary or non-salty drinks.
