    I wouldnt advise it ,although I have done it before , Instead try a 5 - 10 minute walk outside combined with splashing water in your face - The energy drinks do help you stay awake but when you actually do finish you wont be able to sleep at all

    The new, tiny, concentrated Red Bulls are absolutely mental. I bought a couple in college on Monday, swigged one in the common room and then downed another when I thought it was having no effect and boy did I regret that. I was actually twitching about for about half an hour and even then my heart was racing like hell.

    ah, it's all good, i'm willing to sacrifice a night's kip for a solid couple of hours work.
    (problem is, i'm in a lose-lose situation atm, courseworks due in tomorrow, its either this or a proper massive 10minute rage from my short-tempered i.t teacher.)
    trust me, you'd opt for the first one to if you knew what she was like. :p: haha. a nightmare.

    thanks for the reply anyways!

    Haha, well I wouldn't recommend that at all but it would be pretty badass if you had a negative reaction to them and had a massive seizure in the exam hall :P

    Did you not feel a little bit ripped off? I didn't think it was worth the extra pound or so over a normal can, even then I tend to just go for the 69p litre of red rooster/boost/blue bear :yep:

    I used to exist on these energy drinks in college when i really got into online gaming. After a year of kick, red bull and relentless abuse (pun intended), i developed some pretty nasty heart problems in that whenever i exercised it felt like i was having a heart attack. Even when I was resting I sometimes had palpatations and chest pains. Trust me, don't get hooked on these!

    I was the same in the first year of my Alevels. Just played CS:source all the time and drank 2 cans of redbull a night, sometimes even 4 and was playing until 5-6 in the morning. Ultimately I got C,E,U,U lol. and consequently stopped gaming and drinking them damn energy drinks, although the past few days I have started again to get all my C3 maths and Unit 4 chem revision all done :eek:

    red bull but only for extreme circumstances and if you are generally healthy. I have mildly low blood pressure so i take them when i want to be sure that i won't faint during an exam but it's like having a few expressos and you might get palpitations and even shortness of breath so use with caution.
