Hi, I'm 16 and I have to give in my coursework tommorow or I will be kicked of the course

So I need to stay up quite late, but I get tired after 8 or 9 so I will need something to keep me up. I will do work till 11 0r 12pm and I have just purchased a red bull.

But I worry if I drink it I will not get to sleep and will be shattered tommorow. Can someone tell me how long does the red bull effects last on you. It would be really helpfull.

It sends me to sleep.

Seriously, it does absoloutely nothing for me except make me feel abit light headed if I drink too much.

Your best not drinking red bull, especially if it's coursework your needing to do as it will do nothing for your concentration. Try eating things like nuts and fruit and drinking plenty of water and perhaps a cup of coffee to keep you abit more alert. But you would have been best ensuring you had a decent nights sleep last night.

And kicking you off a course at (I'm presuming) GCSE so late into the course? Sounds abit off to me.

depends on your sensitivity to caffiene. my husband is wired after a couple of red bull, it takes a lot more to stop me from dropping off.

OP just neck it all at about 8pm. the caffiene and sugar should keep you going til about midnight you shouldnt have trouble sleeping. Maybe take a really warm bath before you get into bed and read for a bit to make yourself more sleepy.

Does nothing for me but 4 or 5 do! Red Bull is expensive and tastes awful. Tesco Diet Kick, 1.55 for 6 cans is better and tastes great.

Thank God other people aren't affected by it! I thought I was a freak lol, have it in Jaegerbombs and I never seem more hyper like others do, had it in the library one night before an exam and all it did was give me a sore head.

I prefer Rockstar Energy, the Mango and Guava flavour, it actually tastes good and does work on me a little bit.

Maybe I have a high threshold for Caffeine since I only really drink Diet coke or Pepsi so I'm used to a fair bit of Caffeine.

Relentless is nicer than Red Bull and a 500ml can is about the same as a 250ml Red Bull can!

rockstar is cheaper, nicer, stronger and more in a can.
