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
8 hours, pump&dumpx1: Most drug concentrations peak within a few hours in breast milk. Foods usually will reach the baby by about 6 hours after ingestion. You should avoid excessive caffeine while breastfeeding, so a cup of tea or coffee in the AM is ok, but baby will get the caffeine around early afternoon. Large amounts of caffeine are not good for you or baby. ...Read more
Possibly deadly: It depends on your age and cardiac health. These drinks are no longer allowed to be consumed by people under 18 and likely a risk for older persons with health issues. They are potent stimulants some people had issues with their heart racing skipping etc someone with bad coronary disease would be a risk for heart attack although I do not know if any heart attacks are associated at this time ...Read more
This morning at 11am I had a 710ml monster energy drink and at 9:30pm, I took two melatonin, will I be okay?
Yes: Yes you will be okay. If you are generally in good health. 18 years old and with no history of heart disease, you will be alright. However this is a good opportunity to point out the dangers of high energy drinks used in excess. They can cause hugh blood pressure, heart palpitations, chest pain and anxiety symptoms. Also trying to counteract the effects with melatonin is not a solution. ...Read more
No contraindication: But am concerned about the reasons for taking both. Energy drinks are essentially caffeine, with some of them containing herbal remedies like ginko and often containing vitamins (which are mostly useless, and are just urinated out if you take excess amounts). People who feel tired should treat the cause of being tired, and not use stimulants (whether caffeine or others) - a vicious cycle develops. ...Read more
I have a cold and fever. I love the energy drink monster, but would it make my sickness (fever) worse?

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

How come I always feel like I'm sweating to death when I go to sleep after drinking jagermesiter mixed with monster energy drink? Is it dangerous?
Only if ingested: The monster has a considerable amount of stimulant like components like caffeine and I believe taurine. The jag has a noradrenergic component I suspect that also encourages agitation and sympathetic hyperarousal. They both then together cause a fight or flight reaction chemically - with elevated heart rate, sweating, insomnia, racing thoughts, and - combined with alcohol - disinhibition (be stupid). ...Read more

I feel tired/drowsy all the time, how many. Monster energy drinks should I drink to combat fatigue?
Could me drinking energy drinks excessively be making my heart beat feel more prominent? I drink upto 5 cans of monster a day. Have previously been hos
Yes. From Caffeine.: These "energy drinks" actually give you NO energy but a lot of caffeine (read the label) -- often a days' worth in 1 can! Caffeine is a (mild) stImulant, but in enough quantities it can cause irregular heart beats which may be the 'prominence' you describe. You can do a simple test: cut back gradually on caffeinated drinks over 1-2 months & then see if your symptoms are better. Takes willpower, th ...Read more
No: While it is true that taurine is an important building block for protein and is necessary for good brain, heart and blood vessel function, there is no evidence that supplementing with taurine can prevent or reverse heart disease. Correspondingly, the amount that might be needed is completely unknown and, if found to be beneficial, likely to be much more than what is contained in Monster drinks. ...Read more
Is drinking monster energy once every 2-3 weeks good for you or will it cause any harm to my body?
Energy drinks: Energy drinks have no nutritional value - meaning they're empty calories. However, there's no evidence I know of that says having one every 2-3 weeks will cause significant or lasting harm to the body. Only risk is that every 2-3 weeks becomes every 1-2 weeks, then that becomes a few times a week, then boom... You're hooked on caffeine. ...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

Maybe: You can be sensitive to artificial colors or flavors in energy drink. It s best to stop for now. If there is residual rash that is not fading you may need prescription cream. See a dermatologist if it persists after stopping energy drinks. ...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
