Does 5 Hour Energy Really Work?

Chaser 5-Hour Energy Drink is a liquid energy product that is presented small sized servings. It has a pleasant flavor and claims that other than caffeine, it is formulated with B-vitamins and amino acids as well. These vitamins and amino acids provides continuous energy to its users, making it different from other brands of energy products available in the market where you will experience that ”jumpy” feeling from too much caffeine and then crash after some time, not having the vigor that you need, when you need it most. Since Chaser 5-Hour Energy Drinks come in small sizes, it also allows you to conveniently bring it anywhere.

Yes - Excellent option if You can't do Caffeine
5 stars5 stars5 stars5 stars5 stars

I have problems when I drink anything with caffeine; I have to urinate way too often and I get jittery and shaky. I tried this as a sample at Sam’s Club, and couldn’t believe it worked. I highly recommend this to anyone who doesn’t want the caffeine, calories or potty stops any more!

Yes - Makes me nasty
4 stars4 stars4 stars4 stars4 stars

I work sometimes 20 hour days, usually 14-15 hour days and some mornings I need that extra jump start. It works really well, but, it makes me have a short fuse. I tend to get pretty nasty with no patience for others.

Yes - Works without making me all jumpy
4 stars4 stars4 stars4 stars4 stars

I use this on a regular basis when I drive long distances. Taking half the bottle and then the other half an hour later seems to give me the best effect of staying alert and not getting all jumpy. Red Bull just made my heart race made me overall too jumpy. I’ll take one about 2PM when in my office instead of eating junk food. But don’t take it after 4PM if you have trouble sleeping!

Yes - Works, but there are prices
4 stars4 stars4 stars4 stars4 stars

It works as it says, which is interesting to me as there’s nothing ‘magical’ about it.

I suffer from chronic fatigue and often this small bottle is the only thing that can get me up to at least eat and feed the animals.

There ARE side effects in some people however (the ‘panic attack’ described above was probably an allergic reaction), such as headaches, nausea and other minor problems experianced.

Also, those with ADHD or Insomnia should be careful in trying this product, it can sometimes interact with the chemistry in the brain to keep you up far longer then intended.

No - Caused Panic Attack!
2 stars2 stars2 stars2 stars2 stars

I followed the instructions and took the five hour energy product. Within about 30 minutes, I noticed energy, alright – but a very negative kind. It felt like something was sitting on my chest, like I could not breathe, and I thought I was dying. I went to the E.R. and they told me it was just a panic attack. While it was wearing off I felt incredibly depressed. So I went from anger to depression in this “five hour” span. NOT recommended, my heart felt like it was pumping out of my chest.

Yes - works well & doesn't taste to bad
5 stars5 stars5 stars5 stars5 stars

I first tried it on a long drive in hopes of it keeping me awake through the boring trip, and it worked great. This was about a year ago, and I’ve been using it ever since when I need a boost on a long drive or long work day.

Just as a tip, it works best on an empty stomach and sometimes you might get a minor (but not unmanageable) headache, also the effects of the energy boost fade fairly quickly if you eat something more substantial than a protein bar for example, after taking the energy shot

I purchased this product on 22FEB10 and I must say that I am very satisfied with the result. I just completed at 10.5 hour trip at about 4 hours into my trip I was feel drowsy and needed to pull off to the side to rest but I did make it to a rest area and lo and behold they actually had 5 hour energy in a vending Machine. I bought on eand Immeidatley I felt awake and refreshed and had the stamina to continue my journey.

Driving a truck, you already get pretty darn tired so I do take this product but it only works for 2 or 3 hrs,depending on how tired you are.
