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. Prednisone is an anti inflammatory medication and energy drinks often contain lots of caffeine. The combination may be too much for your stomach, too. ...Read more
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

Probably not: There are many active ingredients in engery drinks, but taurine, glucuronolactone, and caffeine are the main ones.

No: But depends on how much your drink. A single 5 hour energy has about the same amount of caffeine as 2 large and strong cups of coffee, so it is probably no worse than that. The vitamins and ginseng and other stuff in those drinks is worthless and does no good or harm, but the companies pretend that they give you more energy. A healthy diet, exercise, and a balanced lifestyle give us energy. ...Read more
They are a scam: Most energy drinks are high doses of caffeine, which is a stimulant. If used occasionally they are not a big deal, and no worse than equivalent amounts of caffeine in soda or coffee. When used regularly and/or in high doses, caffeine increases anxiety, causes insomnia, can raise blood pressure and pulse, and causes a rebound fatigue. The vitamins etc some put in them are useless and add expense. ...Read more
None: Energy drinks are basically caffeine, and this is not required for good health, the ability to exercise or muscle strength. In fact, many trainers strongly recommend against the use of excessive caffeine for people who are training. The vitamins and other supplements in the drinks are a waste of money. A healthy balanced diet is adequate for nutritional needs, maybe protein shakes and an mvi (multivitamin). ...Read more
Not doing it: Energy drinks are simply high doses of caffeine, which is not good for people in excess. Energy and stamina do not come out of a pill bottle, or for that matter 5 cups of coffee, although that can be a temporary solution. The long-term answer is good diet, exercise, staying at healthy weight, getting adequate sleep. A therapeutic multivitamin may help if your diet isn't what it should be. ...Read more
Do you sleep nights?: In general, it's not a good idea. Large amounts of caffeine impair sleep, cause anxiety, even tremor and can precipitate panic attacks. If you work 3rd shift, it is far better for you to get natural sleep, eat a proper diet and not use stimulants. If you have shift work sleep disorder, there are better medications for it than large amounts of caffeine. ...Read more
