In addition, they have been linked to obesity, tooth decay and dehydration. Also, combining alcohol and/or anti-depressants with energy drinks can be hazardous. For an energy boost, experts recommend eating complex carbohydrates, like organic trail mix or a spoonful of peanut butter and a glass of water.
