  • I love 5 hour energy. My son is a personal trainer and he sees no problem with this drink...he said it is mostly B vitamins...and it sure does work for me.

  • Yeah I've tried them. It depends on how often you drink them and you have to find the right ones for you. Some wake me up, but put dh to sleep. Other wake dh up but put me to sleep.

  • I have tried several different kind of energy drinks and not a single one of them really gave me any energy at all. It was like I was drinking them mostly for flavor and nothing more, which half the time the flavor isn't really that good. Nothing works for me like a strong cup of coffee in the morning lol

  • I'll just say that there are countries in Europe that have banned them AND those that don't ban them have warning labels on them.

  • My son drank several at once and was shaky and couldn't get to sleep. I am sure you aren't supposed to drink that many, he didn't realize the effect it would have on him.

  • I occasionally drink 5-hour energy. They work for me. I have never had more than one a day.
