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.

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 have shift work sleep disorder, there are better medications for it than large amounts of caffeine. ...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).
