I was thinking of taking this once in a while before I work out since I'm sometimes incredibly tired after school, but I'm wondering if this stuff is bad for your body. I know it's not like a Monster or Rockstar where it's loaded with sugar and caffeine, but I find 5 Hour Energy to hard to believe.

So does anyone have any personal experiences or facts that can help me decide if this **** is safe for my body?

It's effects, unless you're directing towards it to who or what it affects.

but, otherwise, you seem to be in the clear..I find it to be a load of bull also.

It's just loaded with B vitamins. Had them before, just don't drink on an empty stomach, much pain ensues. Btw, it's "effects", not "affects".

Perhaps you should use correct grammar next time and safe yourself the sarcastic response. I'm almost regretting helping you after that.

Jk.

Idk if it has any side effects.

Then why, Dec. 08'er, did you post anything at all?

The 5 hour energy shot isn't that special. A multivitamin and maybe some extra niacin work just as well in my experience, maybe even better because you get a little more well rounded nutrients

I get 'affect' and 'effect' mixed up and was expecting someone to correct me, it's no big deal...

Well, if it is bad, think of it not being THAT bad. After all, it's only like a sip.

I've had a 5-Hour Energy Shot before, and they taste awful and kept me awake about the same as a redbull. I didn't experience any side effects, so I'd say go ahead, but you might be better of with just some normal energy drink.

They make you spell effects with an "a" instead of an "e" so people think that you're retarded and laugh at you...

I always take forever to feel the effects. I don't feel the effects until it's time for me to go to bed.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

There is a side effect that is somewhat common. 5-hour energy contains an ingredient called Niacin which increases blood flow near the skin which may result in you having flush, red skin for several minutes.

Bit of Viagra should take care of that.

And then a hooker to take care of the ensuing 5-hour erection.

My weirdest dream would have to be when I dreamed that I met this chick I really liked and wanted to practice sex, so I practiced on some guy I met at a gas station...that was pretty screwed up.

I had two of them before school yesterday. They definitely kept me awake, which surprised me because normal energy drinks have the opposite effect on me. I got a pretty big niacin flush about 5-10 minutes after I drank them. You'd be better off getting a few Adderol's and popping them instead. I've had 5 hours of sleep in the last 60 hours and I feel fine

I've used them and I think they are a waste of money, I had the same effect with drinking a Monster. I'll stick with Monster because it tastes better.

So I was wondering, are black people capable feeling love? I mean can their brains comprehend that kind of emotion, or are they not programmed that way.
