    I used to drink Red Bull quite a bit when I was younger, and had no issues with it at all. Now adays (about 4 years on) I'll get heart palpitations just after, or up to 24 hours after drinking just one can.
    I'm obviously not going to touch the stuff anymore, but I'm just wondering if I should be worried about it.

    I've had a similar experience with Lucazade Caffine Boost. Nothing to be worried about, just be careful with drugs.

    Yea it's the caffeine. I used to drink about 6 cups of coffee a day and started getting palpitations as I got older.

    Just cut out the caffeine you'll be fine.

    i dunno what i would do if i had to stop drinking cola D: i need the energy as i am constantly tired, but it isn't worth worrying, but if you do just go to your doctor they will offer good advice, but for time being like have a nice caffeine free alternative good luck happy Christmas x

    I'm never drinking vodka red bull again

    There's so many cocktails that taste so lovely and I keep going with the most horrible spirit mixed with some vile taste. Why do I do it to myself? Why?!

    Just sounds like you are very sensitive to caffeine. Wouldn't worry about it, but I would try to cut down a bit.

    LOL, Magners is the only thing non-spirit that I like the taste of - all other ciders and beers I have tasted have been rank. Costs a bit more for a night out but Somerfield have deals on it in one form or another most of the time so its all good :p:

    Just no good when I have to physically run home when I've left the club without going for a pee having had 3 bottles of Magners :p: Painful
