    Default Best energy drink for staying awake while driving home Sunday night...

    So Sunday night after Rage I have to drive back to Santa Barbara since I have an important midterm on monday morning. It sucks, but I gotta do it. And I will be alone.

    So I want to know if there are any easy to find and effective energy drink type products that people have had good experiences with. Preferably one that won't make me have to stop to pee a lot or crash after it wears off.

    Ive seen those adds for that 5 hour energy stuff and was wondering if it works. If it does last for 5 hours that would be perfect since that is about how long it will probably take me to drive back.

    Red Bull always does the trick for me. Or just get coffee.

    5 Hour Energy = STAY AWAY.

    Tastes like armpit and doesn't work at all.

    My personal favorite energy drink is the SOBE: Adrenaline Rush, which tastes awesome.

    Your best bet is to just buy a few. Maybe add some tea to keep it going.

    I say three or four just in case. Buy them cold and pound them as you need. Listen to an Audio Book or something you can actually pay attention to. OR call somebody and try to keep them on the phone as long as possible.

    Pee in all those empty cans you'll have left over and try not to crash while doing it

    I tried to drive to San Diego after my first coachella, with no sleep. My advice is get a little bit of rest, at very least. It'll only help. Five hours after staying awake that whole time is gonna be killer.

    Smoke cigarettes + any energy drink

    Or if you want to go the healthier route, munch on sunflower seeds. You'll be so distracted with spitting out the shells, you won't fall asleep behind the wheel.

    Of course you're probably being a smartass and not referring to the drink.

    Energy drinks do nothing for me. Drink a lot of soda.

    that stuff is crazy, little bottle will keep you going. they sell them at 7-11 or GNC. chase it with a 3X monster bottle and you'll stay awake the whole drive.

    just think! it could be worse... you could be like my friend who has to drive back sunday night to get back in time to catch a 6 a.m. monday flight to switzerland (for some major business/client presentation) ...

    hmm... look for something infused with lots of ginseng!

    Yeah I don't touch energy drinks. Black coffee and splenda does the job and doesn't make me crash like energy drinks have the tendancy of doing.

    Try also getting some really spicy snack (flaming hot cheetos work well). The pain in your mouth will help keep you alert on top of the actual stimulants in whatever energy drink you wind up with. As for that, just pick whichever one tastes okay enough that you can drink all of it. They're all pretty much the same.

    redline probably works the best or the sugar free Redbull you wont get the crash because it doesnt have sugar.

    Starbucks iced cofee and mix it with the small can of expresso. I work at a gas station at night so i find different drinks, mix them, and see which works best, but yeah that will keep u awake.
