Anyone tried 5 Hour Energy?

Did it work? Did you like it? Any weird side effects?

  • I haven't, but DH has and he says it tastes awful but it does work, however it made him crash once it wore off. I should try that stuff lol.

  • It does taste nasty. I drank it one morning and cleaned my entire house. I don't remember crashing at all after tho. I always keep one in my purse for those just in case days.

  • here is what I found:

    Personally I have never tried it, nor would I. Assuming the caffine amount is the same as coffee, why not just drink the coffee? I have a huge concern about the massive amounts of the B vitamins. Vitamins are good for your body in the correct amounts. Taking to much of anything is dangerous.

  • I've drank it a couple times and if you get the right flavor it doesn't taste to bad. It worked for me, gave me energy when I was tired without the drop when it wore off. My fiancee drinks them alot at work, he works long hours and it helps him stay awake and energized (course he usually drinks more than one a day)

  • I have had it a few times , And it does taste like a really strong vitamin taste but it does work . Make sure you eat something though because I didnt one time and got a sick stomach

  • I have drank a few. Grossest tasting things ever. I do have energy but not bounding amounts of it. And I did have a 10 minute period where I was really hot and flushed looking.
