Hey Doc, I’m a 16 year old male taking Cellucor

Patient: Hey Doc, I’m a 16 year old male and I have a question. For the past few months I have been taking an energy supplement before I workout, called cellucor C4. It contains 1500 MG of Beta Alanine, 1000 MG of of Creatine Nitrate and Arginine AKG, and 741 MG of Caffeine Ahydrous. I experienced no side effects except for the usual crash. A week ago I tried a new supplement called Ubervita roct pro, which contains altogether 9000 MG of Caffiene, Schizandra, Beta Alanine, and Creatine Monohydrate. An hour after I took it I experienced paranoia, intense shaking, chills, and a weird feeling in my heart As well as trouble breathing. I visited the ER, but by that time I had calmed down and showed noirregularities. The Doctor said there was no way of knowing what’s going on unless I visit my personal physician, but that will take a few days. Ever since that day I’ve been experiencing the same symptoms but not as severe, am I just experiencing panic attacks or something more? What is your insight on the matter?
