One energy drink a day with other prescribed stimulants?


Q: Hi I take stimulants for my ADD, specifically dexedrine. They are prescribed to me and i do not abuse them. I find that after school i crash from the dexedrine and just feel terrible, i have recently started drinking energy drinks after school when i crash and i feel alot better. i asked my doctor about the caffeine and he said it was fine, i did not say energy drinks though. My question is, is it safe to have like one a day? maybe one every other day? I'm just curious because energy drinks contain more sugar and vitamins and other stimulants.Also im 17 turning 18, 5'11 and 140lbs.Thanks for any help you can provide me with!
