Five Hour Energy

Hi All- Day 9 and counting! WOW it is amazing how everyday really does get a little better. Well I experienced hell and this must be what heaven is like:) . Just a quick question...my energy is zero ( I know par for the course) has anyone ever tried that lil bottle of 5 hour energy? If so, does it help? Or am I just looking for a quick fix with false promises? Thanks all, you are my rocks!!!

Yes they work really well I've used them in almost daily before when I did constructio. B12 is the boost in it and it doesn't make u crash like a sugar rush if your already taking vitamins with b12 or vitamin drinks just be carefully not to take to much u will be to jittery

Hi Tavia - I'll go against the grain on this one, they didn't do anything for me. Tried them all and they all stink. The B complex vitamin is important if you don't have any, grab a bottle. Double up the first few days. Stink like crap, but do work. I bought Hydroxycut, it's a diet supplement available at Walgreens. Take one in the morning, it's a energy booster and fat burner, advertised on TV. That helps with your appetite too, stimulates your metabolism. Along with a multi-vit, B complex, vit C, L Tyrosine (tough to find, but is at Whole Foods) every morning, my energy came back in a big way after day 10.

Congrats on day 9! You will see big gains in the days ahead.

I'm SO happy for you. I just sent an email a few minutes ago because I was wondering how you were. Congrats on 9 days and just my opinion, go ahead and try one and see how it works for you. It made me jittery but I know of others who swear by it. Won't hurt to try.

Give yourself a HUGE pat on the back, your doing amazing!!

This may help drink just half after a meal or with anything on your stomache if it feels ok drink the rest as needed

Those 5 hour energy were my savior the first 6 days!  They really do work, I took one in the morning on my way to work and another one mid-afternoon.  Now I'm finding that coffee works great too (I was never a coffee drinker before).  Also I started taking a vitamin called "alive" for women and it's great, I've really noticed a difference.  I got it at wal-mart.  Great job on 9 days!

I must agree with everyone that the 5 hour energy really does work. It got me thru some really rough days. It also seems to help with positive motivation. Big ups on 9 days!

When I was taking pills, the Five Hour Energy thing didn't affect me at all.
But once I'd been off of them for at least a week, it started affecting me and made me feel pretty good.
I thought I was slightly ADHD, to where caffeine or anything didn't affect me, but now I'm not sure.
