Ask The Doctor > Questions & Answers > 5 HOUR ENERGY COFFEE?

Patient: Can I use Five Hour Energy drink instead of Water to make my coffee? I need an extra boost and I’m wondering if this is safe and what the effects can be.

Symptoms: Sleepiness

Doctor: 5hr energy drink is a combination of amino acids and lots of caffeine. It would not be advisable to mix coffee and 5-hr energy drink as may lead to too much of caffeine in your system which obviously is not a good thing to have. Try getting your extra boost without trying out such concoctions.
