    What is the general consensus of drivers that drink 5 hour energy? Do drivers not drink it because of the sugar levels? I know people that drink it in moderation mixed in water or something.

    5 hour energy contains no sugar.

    I can take one every once in a while, but any sort of regular use will make my stomach hurt. Due to it making my stomach hurt, I'm leery of the product in general now. But in a freakin' pinch, where I must, must, must stay awake, I will use one.

    It also tastes like crap.

    Thank you for the input. I didnt think there was sugar in it. When i worked 90 min from home, I would use one to get home on, I would work 10-12 hr days and then have to drive home. I would mix it with some water. I can handle it straight.

    At the top of this forum, there is a a poll I added. The fourth option is the "actual" poll I am asking drivers to take. Please if you have time, please click on that link to take the poll. It is for my college class.
