Is there any long term harm in drinking 3 to 4 Monster Energy drinks a day?!

Question: Sometimes I'll drink 2 or 3 in one half hour to keep myself alert and focused. Is there anything that may happen to me when or as I get older from doing so?

you'll get addicted to caffiene

your kidneys and liver will be destroyed

You'll explode into a bazillion pieces, raining down on people as they run for cover.

wow are u serious? do u know much sugar and caffiene and other crap is in energy drinks like monster? keep it up and you will have diabites in no time...

Immediate harm: heart failure. Don't drink that's dangerous.

all that caffeine will elevate your blood pressure and heart rate..overtime it might hurt you cardiovascularly

i'm just surprised that you can type accurately...i would be shaking viciously after a few days of that

you have a big chance of getting heart conditions you'll be fine if you just drink about 1 a day.

Side effects that are related to Monster Energy include gastro-intestinal problems. This drink has particularly high levels of carbohydrates which makes it more difficult for nutrients and fluids to be absorbed into the bloodstream. That can be particularly dangerous to your health if you are exercising and losing a lot of fluid.

Monster Energy Drinks have a high sugar content. When the sugar leaves the bloodstream your energy level can plummet significantly.

It has been suggested that the high levels of caffeine can disturb sleep, and be a contributing factor with heart disease and high blood pressure.

One Monster Drink user reported all kinds of side effects. She had pains in her stomach, vomiting, headaches, mood swings, blurred vision, and inability to concentrate. If your experiencing these side effects than maybe you should quit.

You need to stop. That is way too much caffiene and you are putting your body through a lot of unnecessary stress. your heart, liver, and kidney work overtime with caffiene. Not to mention, you will develop horrible migraine headaches if you get too addicted and try to stop. Start weening yourself off!

i would not drink 2-3 in a half hour may be 2-4 in a day is ok .and don't use it all the time to be alert you have to sleep some time . and try red bull

I wouldnt worry too much, as long as you don't drink more than 3 a day, but i also wouldnt drink 3 a day everyday.

Monster and energy drinks can be linked to heart attacks and such if you drink them excessively.

Theres no long term effects, but you may become addicted to the caffeine and withdrawel effects are headaches. Be very careful not to overdose on caffeine, which you can.

if theres one thing i definatly know its this. i used to drink that much monster.. well the doctor i went to for this (i got sick after a month) said think of monster as soda and think as each one as three sodas and think of the monster as destroying your liver half as fast as beer.. ya after i got sick i was never able to chug more than two at a time

I stopped drinking my daily 2 cups of coffee and found that I am just as alert and focused without it. I did get one headache 48 hours after stopping, but that's all.

In large amounts, and especially over extended periods of time, caffeine can lead to a condition known as caffeinism.[62][63] Caffeinism usually combines caffeine dependency with a wide range of unpleasant physical and mental conditions including nervousness, irritability, anxiety, tremulousness, muscle twitching (hyperreflexia), insomnia, headaches, respiratory alkalosis[64] and heart palpitations.[65] Furthermore, because caffeine increases the production of stomach acid, high usage over time can lead to peptic ulcers, erosive esophagitis, and gastroesophageal reflux disease.[66] However, since both "regular" and decaffeinated coffees have been shown to stimulate the gastric mucosa and increase stomach acid secretion, caffeine is probably not the sole component of coffee responsible.[67]

There are four caffeine-induced psychiatric disorders recognized by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition: caffeine intoxication, caffeine-induced anxiety disorder, caffeine-induced sleep disorder, and caffeine-related disorder not otherwise specified (NOS).

yes! You can actually die form doing that....espescially in a half hour! The minimal thing that can happen is a stroke-and thats not good. Monster and all the rest of the energy drinks also affects your neurotransmitters in your brain. You need to find a different outlet for your fatigue and stress...because,yes, that will do you a great deal of harm.

Actually yes, there are alot of side effects:

1.Side effects of an energy drink are caused by the combination of ingredients. The certain combination of ingredients in monster consist of carbohydrates that can cause the body absorption of nutrients and food into the bloodstream to become more difficult. Eventually you can encounter gastrointestinal issues.

2. This would also cause fluids to be absorbed into the body more difficult causing hydration problems.

3. Monster is very rich in sugar. Once the drink wears off and the blood sugar level drops, you will feel it and it will not feel good.

4.Large consumptions of caffeine, which is present in drinking large quantites of Monster, can cause insomnia or other sleep disorders. Caffeine is also a cause of high blood pressure and heart diseases.

Also, if you are having a hard time staying alert and focused you may want to go to a doctor, you may have a disorder like ADD and Monster is not a good solution for it.

I would highly suggest that you stop drinking monster for a while or at least cut it down slowly.
