    Currently in the office and have a 2 hour driving lesson directly afterwards. I am on 3.5 hours of sleep, so I need some kind of stimulant to actually make use of my lesson.

    I hate hot coffee, so would ideally get the redbull or a chilled coffee (if we even have those here).

    Does red bull give the same effect as coffee or does coffee last longer?

    Red bull has 4 times the caffeine than a typical cup of coffee. In addition, it contains ginseng and taurine, other active ingredients that give the energy rush.Purely from a chemical perspective, red bull is a better stimulant. However for me, iced coffee keeps me awake better than red bull does, so it varies per person.

    If you go for coffee make sure it's not milky.

    Yeah Redbulls defo a better stimulant but I crash alot harder after it lol considering its only a 2 hour window though idk. Iced coffee would definitely take priority over both if i can get it.
