Old Jan 15th, 2008, 03:19 PM        Does anybody else have this problem with energy drinks?
I don't drink them very often but when I do they always make me really fucking ill. I had one this morning and now I can't stop shaking and twitching, my joints are popping and I have a general feeling of tenseness. I think I might be allergic to guarana or taurine, since those two ingredients are common to pretty much every energy drink. Back in August I was hospitalized briefly after having a panic attack that I think was at least partially induced by Red Bull.

Aren't those symptoms of too much caffeine/sugar, because they have a lot of those, too?

I just miss the days back in the early 90's when the only thing you needed was a can or two of Jolt Cola.

I've never had a bad experience with energy drinks myself, but I have friends who have. I'm sure you've probably reached this conclusion by yourself by now, but it you think energy drinks are the cause, it's time to stop drinking them.

The only thing i dislike about energy drinks is that they're all fucking expensive.

I'd rather put straight sugar into a syringe instead of payin fuckin four bucks for a 12 ounce can of prefab shit.

Also, Red Bull tastes like pee.

I pretty much stopped drinking energy drinks and soft drinks some time ago because they gave me super bad zits (especially colas). Another reason that keeps me from drinking them is that they dry my skin up and give me dandruff. Energy drinks have never made me as ill as you, though, Emu.

Now i mostly drink juices and water when i want to wet my whistle, and one cup of coffee a day to wake me up.

Look for energy drinks that use Vitamin B-12 as their main stimulant. They work well, and probably won't give you the shakes.

I don't get any issues, I depend on them for my overnight shifts (11PM - 7AM) which I get twice a month or so.

The only time I ever drink energy drinks is the day after a bender. Or if I want to feel UNCOMFORTABLY ENERGETIC.

Anyone ever try Relentless? It's this stuff which comes in a huge can with bizarre slogans all over it. The best part is it's bright green, which lends it an almost cosmic feel.

I kinda get the same feelings when I drink certain energy drinks. Jolt was the best , but now they re-released it in a weird can-like monstrosity that puts fear into the elderly and the dutch.

Yes. They also make the energy drink that helps overcome the lethargy which follows a night of binge drinking.

I looked at the back of one of those 5-hour energy drinks and it totaled up to something like 10,000% DV recommendation of Vitamin B.

I know Vitamin B is water-soluable and therefore probably safe in huge quantities, but it's still fucking ridiculous.

I get a similar reaction when I drink too much, too fast with energy drinks. The jitters, for me at least, can be avoided by drinking the drink more slowly so you don't get all the caffeine/sugar at once. Although, you still have to deal with the crash afterwards.

i would feel ill if i drink energy drinks that are chocked with sugar or carbs every day so i usually drink them sugar free or low carb. too much of it can result serious crash, at least for me anyway. i would recommend rockstar blueberry sugar free but i think they may have been discontinued. so lately i've been drinking montser lo-carb.

I don't drink energy drinks. The concept of a manufacturer being able to package and sell intangible things like "energy" is insulting and weird to me. I don't trust them. Plus they taste hideous.

My only complaint with energy drinks is that theyre fucking exspensive.
