    Default Amp energy drink too strong?

    About 5 or 6 months ago a friend gave me a can of that Amp energy drink from Mountain Dew. It was late and I wanted to go to sleep that night so I put in the fridge. It was just an 8 oz. can. I thought it looked puny. Anyway, some days later I wanted to get rid of it so I decided to drink it. I was about half way through the can when I noticed my upper back started to hurt quite a bit. I didn't do any hard work recently at the time. I was just sitting in the computer chair. I finished it, but slowly. It took me longer to drink that than most 12 or 20 ouncers. I don't normally drink things like Amp. I think they are just way too loaded. That night my back hurt a lot. When I went to bed I didn't want to move it was so bad. The next day wasn't too much better. It took quite a few days before the pain went away. I am wondering, could Amp have caused some sort of reaction? If so, what and how? Actually, my friend gave me two cans of that stuff, but after that I never did drink the other can. I gave it away. I don't think I will ever drink something like that again.

    Did you feel as if your pulse or blood pressure were changing? What's the caffeine content of those things....perhaps you are sensitive to caffeine?

    Nope. I didn't feel a thing except that real bad backache. I was fine before I drank that dumb thing. I have drank Mountain Dew many times before without any ill-effects. I even drank Surge when it was around those years ago. No ill-effects there either. I'm wondering if they just overdid it with this Amp stuff.

    <font color="blue"> Description: AMP Energy Drink is Pepsi's first real entry into the energy drink market -- and it is betting on the established Mountain Dew brand name to bring it a good market share. AMP is based on the original flavor of Mountain Dew, so it's a taste that most people will be familiar with. It has been enhanced with a variety of ingredients typically found in energy drinks (taurine, ginseng, guarana, etc.), so the flavor has a bit more bite than regular Dew. Overall, it tastes good -- if you like Mountain Dew. Compared to Red Bull and the Red Bull knockoffs of the world, its a flavorful product. Not too original, but at least we can stand the taste. </font>

    Ive never tried the energy drink, but i have alot of back and neck problems, and ive gained alot of weigth due to not getting around so good. a doctor gave me a diet pill to help me loose some wieght , and i hurt so bad in my upper back and neck that i was unable to do anything. He said it caused me to tense up and were i already had problems it inflamed them. Now i notice it if i get stressed out of have to much caffiene.

    JayC,
    I found a drink that may suit your needs a little better.




    That Amp is for the young whippersnappers. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Curious as to why an energy drink is required?

    "Curious as to why an energy drink is required...."

    Maybe JayC was expecting to get a big CHARGE out of Amp....

    Speaking as an old fellow (just hit 53) I get all the energy I need from two morning cups of instant coffee and regular doses of iced Coke as the day continues. Nothing fancy, but it serves the purpose.

    I don't drink anything in the morning except the milk in my cereal bowl. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

    If I ever drink a pop (or soda to you weirdos [img]/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] ), it is usually caffeine free. That's not to say I don't drink caffeine, just not to get a "charge." Most of the time I usually drink water when not a pop, so I drink much more water seeing as I don't even drink too many pops. I have been drinking more Gatorade and Powerade type of drinks just as a change of flavor from the same ol water.

    To tell the truth, when I had those Amp drinks sitting in the fridge, I was a little apprehensive about drinking one. Now I know why. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
