redbull.. is bad :s - January 14th 2009, 11:53 AM

Hmm ok.. so.. i often get out of breath, or my hearts pumping fast n i can feel it pump in my throat (edit: from small things like just going up the stairs) x] friend whos nurse thinks i have astma :P (but donno how to get checked for that or what they do to see if u have it,..)


aaaanyway,..so besides that.. on newyears eve,.. I was driving, so i figured.. hey, i have to drink alot of coke and redbull so wen i go home (was round 06:30) I wouldnt fall asleep when driving...

Soo.. i had like 5 or 6 cokes.. but then i had between 15 and 20 redbulls in maybe 3/4 hours time :$ I love redbull, tastes great but now, im never drinking it again!!!

because day after nye, i felt really really bad, i told my mum 'my stumach hurt' but it didnt at all, it was my heart :s it was going crazy, going super fast etc, heart was hurting etc.. honestly... i was getting a bit worried but i didnt want mom to worry so i said stumach hurt..

I didn't really think redbull could be so bad to the body :$

So to everyone,.. dont drink too much redbull! really, u dont wanna feel that ;p

i'm not suprised this happened if you drank 20 red bulls!. theres been a lot of stuff in the news about how redbull can give you heart attacks or whatever, which personally i think is all just hyped up by the media but i certainly wouldnt advise drinking 20 cans of the stuff.


..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

Yeah I was actually learning about that in Biology today!! What a coinky-dink

The caffine in red bull (and there is a lot of it people!) messes up your nerve signals to the heart which causes it to make the heart beat faster... which is bad because it stresses the heart.

There was actually a case of some guy who was drinking red bull and then went to play a basketball match- he collapsed and died because his heart couldnt deal with the caffine and your heart naturally speeds up during exercise anyway (sorry i'm not trying to frighten anyone here, just giving an example.)

On another note if you notice that your health hasnt improved after not taking red bull then perhaps you should get that checked out just in case....

We got yelled at about this in psychology it was hilarious . Never knew that a drink could have such bad effects on you!
I've never drank it in my life because I've been told it tastes like piss and since the person that told me has tasted actually piss so I'm taking his word

It tastes disgusting and it doesn't do anything to increase my energy levels. But that's probably because mine are so low, nothing can help it :P

But yeah, too much caffeine is obviously harmful!

Hmm i just have anxiety attacks where heart goes faster and sometimes im out of breath/hard time breathing for no reason lol, or from small things like going up stairs x] (and ofcourse on school @ P.E class i get out of breath really fast lol, stupid teacher and his running-exercises :{

Don't think thats tooo bad ? though a friend said it could be astma :P and says i should get tested for that but i dont know how they could test for astma, is it like blood test ?

ontopic: :P I kinda like its taste, but since nye I've sworen (is that how its typed) to not drink redbull ever again, because my heart was racing and hurting.. it went over the next day though, thank god.

Drinking 20 red bulls is more than a lot. Be careful- consuming that much caffeine can't do any good for your heart. :/

Geez if you drank 20 cans of the stuff I'd be surprised if it didn't make you sick!

I'm more a fan of Monster, and I only have a can once in a while so it's not that bad.

Caffeine is a drug and should be used with caution! Take care!

Hmm I don't know what 'Monster' is to be honest :$

Size wise, Monster is the cat and Red Bull is the mouse.

And if red bull tastes like piss... monster tastes like acidic piss then. =\

They might not sell it where you live, it's really popular around here though. My Social Studies teacher a few years ago used to drink one every morning in 1st period. lol It probably has the same amount of (or more) caffiene than Red Bull, but I don't drink the whole can at one time. (2 servings per can.)

It's good you're all right now, the consequences could have been a lot worse

Red bull, 5 hr energy, any sort of energy drink.
Tried them once.

NEVER.
AGAIN.

Yes, it's bad... for me anyway.

Personally, I too am a fan of Monster rather than Red Bull, although I've stopped drinking both of them as they're expensive. Drinking 20 red bulls... well, I'm not even going to bother to say that's unhealthy and not a wise move, it's self-explanatory.

1 red bull isn't bad. Hell, 5 aren't too bad. 15-20 are bad. I'm not surprised in the least you felt like crap and your heart was racing. Hopefully you learnt your lesson. Also, wouldn't 15-20 red bulls be expensive?

Redbull and any other drinks in that category is very bad.
Monster, 5-hour Energy, Full Throtle, Amp, Nog, Hype...

I used to work at a convenience store and the kids there would only buy these. It's exactly like how adults are addicted to their coffee.

When I would drink a redbull, I just found that it made me anxious and paranoid. That's just where the excess energy would go.


So kids... Don't drink energy drinks.

Redbull can kill you if you drink too much.
Slow down on the intake.

I had a taste of red bull once and it was horrible. You're only supposed to drink 2 a day, I believe. I sometimes drink V, and on the can it says to only drink 2 a day. If I were you, I'd lay off the red bull for awhile. If you need caffeine, have a coffee or something.


Who do you carry that torch for, my young man?
Do you believe in anything?
Or do you carry it around just to burn things down?

Meet me tonight on the turnpike my darling,
where we believe in everything.

so let's strap ourselves up to this engine now
with our God who we found laying under the back seat.
