I am at home sick as we speak due to this drink. I started shaking at work uncontrollably and my lower abdomen and back are hurting very badly. I am having heart palpatations, I'm dizzy and I feel horrible. I almost passed out at work. I can't believe this drink is on the market.

You should read the label before you drink it. Its your our fault. The warning is clearly on the can.

I'm glad spike is still up because that kid is a panzie... I drank 2 and made me feel good and loved it. What an idiot to just drink the whole can... I mean I did and didn't feel to much so chugged one more in about 10 minutes. L8er I decided drinking 2 in about 20 seconds gives the best affect and makes that drink rock!
Yeah kid read the label...

Man, Spike has got to be my favorite energy drink. I order bulk from T-Nation every month. I go through anywhere from 2-6 cans daily (I don't recommend this to anybody!) To those that are weak-hearted - literally - don't take this drink. It'll seriously mess you up if you're not used to as the can says "strong stimulants". Other than caffeine, it also uses stimuli like Yohimbine HCl (a plant extract that acts as a thermogenic) along with the ingredients of the original pill form of Spike. This drinks get's a 2 thumbs up from me.

i think they shouldn't be selling this stuff. my boyfriend drank one at midnight and called me at 1 am saying he was going to die. his system and serious messed up from then crap and has been in and out of the hospital all day. you can say he has a week stomach, but i know it isn't true. he drinks like 4 enegry drinks a day. there is def something wrong with this drink and the fda should be monitoring it instead of letting high schoolers get there hands on it.

for all of you that can't handle it I am sorry. I really enjoy spike and clearly you didn't follow the directions on the can. "Begin use with one-half can per day TO DETERMINE TOLERANCE. If you can't drink it, please stick to sprite.

Nobody should consume heavy amounts of caffeine. There is ample data suggesting moderate amounts will not hurt.
Spike Shooter is dangerous to people because it contains Yohimbe. That is natures viagra. It will create increased blood flow and in tandem with the caffeine it could be dangerous to some people.
Should Spike be banned? No...Anybody could consume the same amount of Caffeine in coffee and have bad experiences.Read the warning label.
Another aspect is the fact that they use Splenda. That is Sucralose in many products. It is a synthetic sweetener created from sugar. It attaches a chlorine molecule to glucose.
I would speculate that many people have a Splenda sensitivity with this beverage. Those who feel this could be a possibility should buy Splenda packets and conduct tests.
I personally can not endorse any product with Splenda. The FDA let this untested product in the market very fast.
The bottom line is that consumers should read warning labels and ingredients. If you read ingredients of so many consumer products you will be disturbed to know that they are all so closely related to petro chemicals.

If you are a doctor and know how to treat extreme muscle spasms caused by ingestion of Spike Shooter please let me know how to contact you. My stepdaughter is in the hospital tonight after drinking this stuff. Thank you .

My daughter (22) ended up in the hospital last night after drinking a can of Spike on an empty stomach. She had involuntary seizures and increased heart rate. She was admitted for further tests and has not yet been released. This drink is so dangerous. Shame on Spike LLC for making this drink.

My son consumed a Spike Shooter yesterday on an empty stomach and became violently ill, almost lost consciousness, and was rushed by ambulance to the hospital. He remained in an altered mental state for 5 hours. After a total of 20 hours, including 12 in Pediatric ICU, he was released from the hospital. Keep your kids away from this product!

You think you feel amped now? Combine yohimbine with a pinch of the amino acid tyrosine and see what happens. Yohimbine is losely categorized as an MAOI- inhibitor. Caffeine severely potentiates its effects as well, hence the combination. Tyramine works great too if not even better. Happy tweaking! ;)
