I work 3rd shift and I use these on a regular basis. I think these work almost as well as the "5 hour" energy drinks. They have the same effect, but for me personally they don't last quite as long as the brand name ones. The duration really isn't that much of a difference for me, maybe a half hour less then the "5 hour" drinks. I find that if I need another one 4 to 5 hours later, then I will drink half of a second drink and save the rest for the next time. The reason I buy these is simple, they are much more cost efficient and they do the same thing. They keep me awake when I need a quick pick me up. Also, the orange flavor (in my opinion) tastes much better then all the other flavors. There is no "crash" from these and they work immediately without any side effects. Honestly, outside of staying awake I have never even noticed the difference before and after I take it - I just stay awake instead of falling asleep. If you are leary about trying these, I would recommend trying 1/2 of the bottle to start with while you are at home and see how it makes you feel. There have been studies done about these and possible adverse reactions and side effects, but the only thing that came out of it was that you most definitely will have a bad side effect if you drink 20 of them one right after the other. That would be comparable to drinking roughly 20 cups of coffee one right after the other - of course you will feel like you are on speed and your heart is trying to beat out of your chest. If you need a quick pick me up without any side effects, I would definitely recommend trying these - at $1.00 each (comparable to $2.99 - $3.99 for "5 Hour"), you can't go wrong.

These work just as well as 5 Hour Energy, at a much lower price. I think they work very well. I'm not falling asleep at my desk in the afternoon anymore!

I use this from time to time ... It is the same as 5 Hour but way less expensive.. Thank you Dollar Tree for keeping the prices down and affordable.
