In brief: Maybe but it depends

1st things 1st. Find out why you need more energy.
Lack of sleep? Depression? Underactive thyroid? Heart failure? Kidney failure? Uncontrolled diabetes? Obesity? There are pills to fix most medical conditions but it's safer if you can keep yourself healthy in the first place. Caffeine is about the only stimulant that you can legally purchase w/o prescription for a boost but it's not w/o side effec.
