I wouldn't but mostly because she reacted so strongly to the one cappucino (sp?) I've had so strongly I'm afraid an energy drink would cause her to explode right out of me.
Most doctors recommend you don't exceed 200 milligrams of caffeine in a day. A 16oz can of Monster has 160 milligrams. Technically it could be ok, if you are absolutely sure you have no or very little other caffeine in a 24-hour period. Keep in mind there is caffeine in a lot of things you wouldn't normally suspect.
Personally, I wouldn't. But I drank an energy drink once in college to pull an all-nighter and finish a paper, and I was so wired and jittery I couldn't even type. Although, I don't drink any kind of coffee ever either, so I guess I'm just not accustomed to it.
Did you know one of the main ingredients in Monster Energy Drinks is taurine, which is the main ingredient in stomach bile...?
I wouldn't go near it. That is a lot different than having a cup of coffee or a soda...
I wouldn't. But I feel ya. For some reason when I'm pregnant, I crave a Guava Rockstar. I want one really bad right now! As soon as I quit nursing, it's the first thing I get!
