Could you get addicted if you mixed energy drink with vit. C in powder form?
An_250984 posted:
I just found out my boyfriend always drinks energy drink especially when we go clubbing but does not take too much alcohol but one day i saw him with one of his friend getting high with energy drink mixed with vitamin C. Does it really give your body or brain a effect like taking ecstacy?

Harry L Haroutunian, MD responded:
I really can't comment about whether or not energy drinks mixed with vitamin C - or anything else - give your body and brain an ecstasy-like experience.

I can say that most energy drinks do stimulate the system much like stimulants used for ADHD or weight loss. The amphetamine class of stimulants will usually speed up heart rate and increase your alertness, and - at times - make you somewhat jittery and nervous. Like anything, they can be abused; moderation is certainly advised. If someone uses them to excess or mixes them with alcohol in order to stay awake or drink more, they certainly are being abused and should be discontinued.

In the treatment environment, these energy drinks are mood-altering, and their use is prohibited for our patients.
