American Heart Association Meeting Report: Energy drinks may increase blood pressure and disturb your heart’s natural rhythm.

I don't know about you but I have always been a little leery of energy drinks. Do you use them? How do they make you feel? Have you suffered any bad effects from them?

I will never again try an energy drink. I felt anxious and nervous and a few hours later was completely exhausted. It was a very unpleasant experience and not something I am willing to go through again.

I really think there needs to be some serious studies on these things. They don't seem safe to me.
