    What is the dangers of drinking energy drinks with Hypothyroidism?
    Jenz12 posted:
    I take medication for Hypothyroidsism and a antidepressiant for mental focus. I also have sleep apnea in which I wake up in the middle of the night and then go to sleep an hour later sometimes. I have been taking naps in the middle of the day. I need to be able to focus on my school work, which I attend College. I also need to exicute a plan to restart my income. I know that Caffene has the oppisite effect on me. My question is for the energy drinks that do not contain caffene. Are they safe?
    catherinetr responded:
    This is a very good question and I would also like an answer. Please. In light of the popularity of Fake energy drinks and those that are more health conscience the energy drinks that contain Natural herbals, like Ephedra nevadensis, natural caffeine, the new Moringa craze and ginseng. Could these herbs burn out adrenals or the thyroid? We need to know. ASAP
