Red bull is an energy drink loaded with caffeine and I drink one everyday. I know that means Im dependent on it but I don't really care. What im worried about is the long term consquences or health problems that might result from caffeine use. Most of the bad stories I hear is about people overdosing on caffeine or downing one red bull after another which is something I dont do. But is there an long term problem associated with this? Thanks.

thats not very helpfull  . If anyone can tell me whats so "bad" about it and what the effects are on your health that would be more helpful.

Caffeine isnt good for you. Its also a drug if you dont know. Too much caffeine about 350mg can cause a heart attack. You dont want a heart attack so dont drink so much.

It's a very common misconception that caffeine is harmless. IT IS NOT. Caffeine causes higher blood pressure and heart rate, not to mention that it is addictive and can be deadly in higher dosages.

JUST BECAUSE IT IS LEGAL DOES NOT MAKE IT SAFE.

I'm not sure how safe it would be to drink red bull everyday, but i can ensure you that it will take negative effects on your health, just like any other carbonated high sugar beverage.

i read an article that linked red bull to causing brain tumours - that was probally bull though in my opinion... as long as you aren't downing them one after another then im sure you will be fine

CAFFEINE SIDE EFFECTS:
Nausea, stomach upset, insomnia, restlessness, nervousness, tremor, headache, lightheadedness may occur. Large amounts of caffeine may aggravate ulcers, cause frequent urination, flushing, muscle twitch or irritability. If any of these effects continue or become bothersome, inform your doctor. Notify your doctor if you experience: dizziness, depression, rapid breathing, chest pain, confusion, fatigue. Abrupt stopping of caffeine intake after several weeks of regular daily use may cause withdrawal symptoms such as headache, anxiety or muscle tension within 12 to 18 hours. If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

Still though, majority of it is correct. I guess if you have nothing else caffinated besides the drink... it may be okay.

Still, you want caffiene? Try Bawls

I agree it's not totally harmless, and does put stress on the heart, but if you only have 1 or 2 servings a day and are *otherwise healthy* I guess youre fine.
It is addictive though.
Some people need to be careful with caffine.
Almost everyone in my family has heart troubles and high blood pressure, combined with some cardiac complications from bulimia, and I still consume at least 400mgs. a day  
I shouldnet but I do...

I think 450 is the overdose limit where you overdose and die. You should be more carefull.
