Energy Drinks and Alcohol

Posted on June 15th, 2009 No Comments

Combining alcohol with energy drinks has recently become a popular trend among many young adults.  This mixture allows its consumers to imbibe a large amount of alcohol without experiencing its depressive and tiring effects.  This attribute has attracted many young people looking for a “buzz.”  In fact, since the demand for such blends has been so high, several pre-mixed beverages have been introduced on the market in response.  Recently, however, dangerous consequences of ingesting both stimulants and depressants have begun to surface.

The Dangers

Common sense indicates that mixing alcohol with strong stimulants (like many of the energy drinks available for purchase) may have dangerous side effects on the human body.  Research studies have shown that this is, in fact, the case.  Combining energy drinks and alcohol has both direct and indirect, dangerous effects on the consumer, including the following:

Failure to notice the incapacitating effects alcohol is having on the body, and as a result either drinking too much or taking dangerous actions, such as getting behind the wheel of a car
Having an adverse reaction to the stimulants in the energy drink
Being physically unable to handle the combination and consumption of such large amounts of stimulants and depressants
Extreme dehydration

It is important that those who choose to drink energy beverages and alcohol in combination with each other are aware of these possible dangers.
