Okay so a couple weeks ago I was pulling an all nighter with some friends writing some music and such.
Around 5 a.m. We decided to have a 5 hour energy and it was the first one I myself had ever had. Now, normally I don't have bad reactions to excessive amount of caffeine, guarana, etc. But with this, I ended up passing out in the backseat of a care and having my heart rate drop really really far down within 30 mins of ingestion. I wasn't tired at all when I took this stuff, but the effects of 5 Hour Energy almost killed me.

I'm curious to know if any other person has had bad effects from this stuff.

Also my blood pressure is now higher than normal and I'm only 18 and at a decent BMI and I've quit drinking any energy drinks now because of this experience.

I just hate the taste of energy drinks. They taste like carbonated cleaning liquid with a few pounds of sugar mixed in.

Yea, Sublime is a great band. You have an Underoath icon, so I think your opinion doesn't matter.

5 hour energy didnt have THAT bad of an effect on me, but it was in the same direction. I just stick to good old talon/lost and Xenergy.

your desiion to stop drnking them was a good one

Yep. Otherwise you would turn into one of those caffine addicts that gets sick if they DON'T get excessive amounts of caffine. Natural energy from carbs is where it's at!

It's rare for someone to say that about me. Usually it's very opposite.


But yeah definitely was a post for shits and giggles

My brother used it before, only thing it did was make him a little sick...but a little 3 oz. thing of energy doesn't have much effect on a 6'6" 260+ lb person.

Am I the only one here that can drink an energy drink and not have something happen? Yesterday I drank three, and they had no effect on me. And I mean three 16 oz. ones.

Holy **** that's short...compared to the men in my family.

My dad's 6'2", and I'm currently 6'1", but I've still got some growing to do.

I guess I'm fortunate that I benefit "normally" from energy drinks. Although it helps that I only drink them when I actually do need energy for something and I'm tired.

One of my co-workers this summer would take 15-20 "energy pills" a day, I forget what was hte active ingredient in that ****. Probably guarana or some other garbage. Moral of the story: don't abuse the energy supplements.
