Good, but not great Dec 08, 2013
5 hour energy has been a staple of mine for years, as I am sure it has been for many others. Buying it in the stores for $3 each was becoming quite expensive though, so I began buying on Amazon where it was only $2. It is still however a bit expensive, and I sometimes forget to bring them with me. They also really don't taste good. They are also not as strong as I would like. 200mg of caffeine and some b vitamins don't really do it for me anymore. So I have been on a mission to find an alternative (a cheaper one) and came across some supplements on Amazon that are much stronger, and cheaper per dose. One of them is called AdderRx, the other JetRush. Crazy energy, lots of focus, even a bit of a "buzz" and a bit over $1 per dose. Anyone looking at 5 hour energy needs to check out AdderRx or Jetrush.AdderRx (Nuphetamine HCM)- Clinically proven to increase mental focus, brain function, cognition, alertness, improve concentration, and energy for those with ADD/ADHD. Money back guarantee! JetRush - The world's most Intense energy & focus supplement! For hardcore stimulant & energy fiends only! Amazing Pre-workout! Great alternative for those with ADD/ADHD. Money Back Guarantee!

Great energy drink but too expensive to drink everyday Sep 17, 2013
By S. Hoyle
I've always been a huge fan of 5-hour energy drinks, but it's just too expensive for me to take on a regular basis, I know I tried! I've always preferred not to drink coffee, the only way I can stand it is if I overload it with sugar so that's kind of a bust. My co-worker who is a crazy health nut introduced me to this energy stack, Energy Booster Stack - 90 Day Servings! which I've been taking in the morning and really liking it. If you ever taken raspberry ketones or yohimbine extract then you know what I mean when I talk about an energy high that feels different from caffeine.
I also like the cost, very affordable. I'll always be a 5-hour energy drinker here and there but if you need a consistent source of energy and are concerned with price, this is the most effective and cost effective energy booster I've found. Hope this helps someone!

The naysayers overstate the 'problems', and the bottom line is, this stuff WORKS. No sugar, no crash. It's true. Apr 15, 2011
By R. A. McDowell
Alright folks, so I'm just gonna lay all my cards on the table, because that's what you're supposed to do in an honest review right? I'm terminally ill, and I mean REALLY sick. I'm fighting hard, but it's a rough time. Part of that includes loss of muscle control, which includes the bladder, etc... Sheesh! LOL I was watching a review one morning on Fox News, after having been using this stuff for awhile, where the doctor they had on just TORE the energy drink business apart. He talked about how dangerous all of them were, and untested and how they basically don't work...
Well I'm here to tell you otherwise. I went and got the EXACT bottle of 5 Hour Energy, Extra Strength, that I always buy, and which he was talking about. He was going on and on about how it was loaded with caffeine and was therefore bad for your heart. PLEASE! I've got the bottle IN MY HANDS right now folks. It states right on it, and this is the extra strength mind you, that it contains caffeine comprable to 12 oz. cup of coffee. That's not much! And yes, he was right that most of them work by being LOADED with sugar to go with the caffeine, and come with a REALLY bad crash afterwards. I experimented with some of the other products, and they taste delicious, but come with an AWFUL crash. This stuff doesn't taste so great because it has NO SUGAR, but it's just a tiny shot, and it works dammit.
And then the doctor told the audience that it stimulates the nerves, and has been shown to cause nerve damage. I literally did a spit take. I was HORRIFIED. But low and behold, I talked to my own team of FIVE Neurologists that work on my case, and they disagreed. They said that a lot of the other drinks are unhealthy, diet-wise. This stuff causes what is called a Niacin Flush, and most of the energetic affects are from megadoses of vitamins. My Neurologists said that this stuff wasn't going to be hurting me, and at worst just might not work.
But it DOES WORK! As I mentioned, I'm very sick. And that includes days when I am so weak I can't get out of bed or my chair. When I'm having nerve spasms, and can't control my muscles, I will sometimes have accidents when I fall asleep. I know the feeling well enough now to know, without doubt, when it will happen. Come on folks, I just admitted something really personal, and you can't get much more down in the dirt than that. LOL So when I feel that feeling, but am also really tired, I will drink one of these. It will keep me up and focused, and most importantly accident free, for between 3 and 5 hours while my nerve medications can kick in. And as those of us who have these problems can attest, that peace of mind, that time that is bought for us, ANYTHING to not make us incontinent if we can help it, is worth a LOT. Certainly the price of these little gems.
The drink wakes me up, and it does NOT give me the jitters or make me edgy. I do not feel overwhelmed or hyper. It simply gives me the energy to get through my rough patch without falling asleep and waking up in a mess. LOL
If there is one downside to this, it's the price. But I ask you this... How many of us are Starbuck's or expensive coffee fanatics? I was for YEARS. And we buy those mostly to help us to stay alert and awake through our day, and also because they are delicious. LOL These cost, per bottle, less than a Venti coffee. And seriously, they work. And that's what they are advertised to do, and that's JUST what they do. And that's all I NEED them to do. Not every product out there does what it says it will do. So that's a boost in my book right off the bat.
I thank you for your time folks. Give these a try if you were needing a safe and least minimally harmful boost to your day during the more tired moments that we ALL have. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
Sincerely, R.A. McDowell

It really works! (And I won't drink Coffee) Aug 09, 2013
By Mike Kearley
I really on use it help me get up at 4am.
And since I don't drink coffee I thought I try it.
I only take a few sips and it helps me keep going for hours.
I truly think that it is a much better choice than coffee
as long as you use it in moderation. You really don't need
to drink the whole thing to get the 5 hour benefit.
One bottle lasts me 3-4 days.

It does work also unexpected benefit Aug 17, 2013
By Dee Ann Phillips
This product does what it says it does but I found a unexpected benefit. I found that if I have one in the morning, and one later in the day my knees that always are sore feel great at the end of the day. Told my doctor who could not explain but I have tried it both ways and now I would not be without it. I am 63 years old and have broken both my legs near the knees and have been in pain for years, especially after a day of work. 5 hour does something to relive this pain, don't know what or why but it does for sure.
