Why Energy Drinks Can Trigger Panic Attacks

By | June 4, 2017

Millions of Americans every day including teenagers and adults are getting all hyped up from energy drinks every day. It’s become a fad around the world and its hip and cool to drink energy drinks no matter what time of day. Kids and adults are not only drinking energy drinks for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but they’re also drinking energy drinks at parties as well.

With kids, the higher the concentration of caffeine and other stimulants the more popular these drinks become. Unfortunately a lot of kids don’t realize that it can cause them to have panic attacks. For that matter, a lot of adults don’t know that either. They have no idea why they sometimes feel the way they do after drinking energy drinks.

They can start feeling exceedingly “amped up” with hot flashes that are ripping through their bodies caused by the adrenal gland secreting adrenaline throughout their body. They may start feeling a tightness in their chest and a choking sensation that they cannot breath correctly.

Their heart will begin racing abnormally high and may even skip a beat or two causing more fear to rip through their body and they don’t understand what’s happening to themselves. Panic attacks induced by energy drinks can also cause not only physical symptoms, but psychological symptoms as well. Feelings of unreality or an intense feeling of impending doom or death are quite common with panic attacks.

In fact emergency rooms across the world are flooded every day from people who have panic attacks induced by stimulants found in drinks such as energy drinks as well from certain drugs such as methamphetamines. For some people who drink energy drinks it never affects them, for other people they can be very susceptible and even trigger panic attacks after drinking something that has a high concentration of stimulants in them.

Energy drinks contain very high quantities of not only caffeine but other natural stimulants as well, that are known to cause or trigger panic attacks in children, teenagers, and adults. Energy drinks do not discriminate.
