Does 5 hour energy and other similar energy drinks cause bad sleep patters and panic attacks? I drink coffee and coffee never gives me those symptoms

Energy drinks: Yes, it is quite possible. Many of these "energy drinks" contain much higher levels of caffeine than in a cup or two of coffee. Additional ingredients may also trigger reactions in sensitive individuals. Avoid these drinks, and consider getting some exercise (like brisk walking) if you need a brief pickup in the afternoon. Any caffeine after 6 PM can trigger sleep problems. Good luck! ...Read more

Deadly: Why mix up all that stuff and expect to be normal? The "energy drink"contains large amounts of caffeine. That causes you to use energy that you can ill afford. It is very misleading and in my view is causing a lot of illness. ...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?

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
