Has anyone tried these drinks?

I'm thinking about trying it. I am so drained in the afternoon.

I never have...I generally avoid stuff like that. My husband has tried it on occasion...the last time (a week or so ago), he did it on an empty stomach and then went to work (in the heat). Not a good idea. He came home puking.

I've done the 6 hour energy but not the 5. My guess is they are similar. They really do work for me but I do run completely out of energy as soon as it wears off. I won't use them anymore though because I just don't think they are good for you and sometimes they make me feel really weird.

I would advise caution. I used to use them but stopped using all energy drinks after finding out I have high blood pressure.

I never have, with my heart condition it wouldn't be safe. My DH has though, and hated them.

Thanks ladies. I think I might skip it. I don't want to deal with weird side effects. I now need to find a way to get an energy boost in the afternoon.

I haven't. Regular energy drinks make me twitchy so I stopped with all that stuff...

Dh uses them from time to time.

I only use them if I need a boost and stopping to pee an hour later isn't possible. If it is possible, I'll just stick with coffee.

I have never used them. I don't like anything that makes my heart race and I feel jittery
