Default Do those energy pills at gas stations really work?

I have a long drive home and I'm thinking about just strait up leaving without sleep. Do any of those little pills help at all in case I need a boost?

He's talking about pills like UP TIME. I don't know if they work but they taste good.

Best option I've found for the situation you're describing is when you get tired and still have a ways to drive, stop at a gas station or resaurant and get a large drink, have them fill the cut all the way with ice. While driving down the road keep a piece of ice in your mouth, it is physically impossible to fall asleep with ice in your mouth (learned from a doctor). Keep popping ice in your mouth. I have done it, it works. Most natural way to stay awake too.

They don't work as good as sleep. Pull off somewhere and sleep for 30 minutes...

My friend told me he was buzzed for 8 hours straight...yeah Red Bull kinda works for me but definitely, if you want to get energy and burn some calories, go with thermogetic products like Xenadrine, Hydroxycut, BetaLean HP, etc.

Or pop some No-Dose

Yes...they work. They usually consist of caffeine, ginseng, gotu kola, etc. Just don't take too many. I prefer Red Bull myself.

But remember, for every thing that brings you up, there's a down period too, even if you keep taking the stuff to offset this. It's a drug like anything else.

Cocaine or Meth would work too.

I've tried the pills twice, and both times it just made me feel sick, and didn't feel any more energetic.

Yeah, sometimes taking caffeine/ephedra supplementation can actually make you feel more tired. It's pretty weird.
