How come energy drinks don’t work for me? | The Energy Drinks Buzz!!

THe same with coffee. I have drink numerous cups and still feel tired. I must have tried all the energy drinks out there and none work for me. Recently I tried the 5 hour energy shot and nothing. If anything, it makes me feel more tired and slightly nauseous, kinda like car sickness. What’s wrong with me that these drinks aren’t doing anything for me?
because coffee doesn’t work for me, I don’t drink it. When I say I tried a lot of energy drinks, I don’t mean one after the other in a small period of time. I’ll try one every few months or so. So, I really don’t think it’s because I have too much caffeine.

alot of these do nothing for me also- nausea and headache

fatigue is common in women and often has a treatable cause.
most common causes are anemia and hypothyroidism.

take care!

    You’ve probably drank so much caffeine in the past that your body has become neutral to the effects of it. If you go a few weeks/months without caffeine then have a few red bulls, you should feel it for sure!

    Have you tried massive doses of vitamins?

    Could be you’re low on Iron, vit. B, or C.

    Yu may have a problem breaking down sugar, which would cause the caffeine to have an adverse affect, your body is wokring too hard to break it down and causes a "crash". Or you just aren’t getting enough rest in general. Your body needs a certain amount of rest depending on your age, activity level, etc and no matter how much sugar/caffeine you consume you won’t get energy.

    Sometimes too, consumng too much caffeine/sugar, your body will crash signaling that you need to balance out your diet and get the recommended amount of sleep. And it’s normal to feel sick if you consume too much caffeine.

    Do you drink a lot of caffeinated pop? Or even drinking as much coffee/ energy drinks now would make your body immune to the effects of caffeine. Your not being effected because your body has been effected to much from all of the caffeine..
    Sorry!

    What do you expect to happen to you when you drink these energy drinks or coffee? You should note that these drinks can be harmful for the body and that explains why you felt nauseous after drinking too much of them. You may be surprised, but the best drink is plain water. You should drink 7-8 glasses of water everyday – and that is all you need to fulfill your body’s requirement for fluids. Juices, lemonade are additional drinks. Avoid aerated drinks, caffeinated drinks, alcoholic beverages (limit them to not more than one glass of wine, lets say per day – if you have to drink it). All these, including energy drinks have been documented to be harmful for the body. Some of these are supposed to have a "waking up" effect on you when you feel a fresh burst of revitalization after drinking them, but that is only because they drain the body cells of their stored energy. So, you may feel a temporary spark of energy, but after a while, your body will feel exhausted when the peak dies down.

    I have the same problem. When ever I drink coffee or tea I just get tired instead of getting energy. I usually feel more energized (extremely hyper) like four hours afterward. With the one exeption where I drank half a cup of normal coffee and two expressos. Then I was really hyper right afterwards and had a massive headache. This is because caffeine affects every body’s body in a different way. And every one takes a longer time for it to work if it works at all. I get really bad headaches if I drink to much but I don’t really feel sick unless I don’t eat anything before. I don’t drink energy drinks though because they not approved by the American food and drug association because of all the chemicals in them. I also rarely drink caffinated soda.

    Maybe your body is becoming desensitized to the stimulant ingredient. Try laying off of all that stuff for a month or two and then if you need it again do so in moderation.
