Are any of the ingredients in 5 hour energy (regular) dangerous

This answer was rated:

Are any of the ingredients in 5 hour energy (regular) dangerous when you consider I am only taking half a bottle per day? Please list the dangerous ingredients based on that serving size. Or let me know if the ingredients are ok if you only take a half a bottle per day. Thanks!
Hello
Half a bottle should not be dangerous
Caffeine is the most active ingredient so it is a problem if you are sensitive to caffeine

Some people are sensitive to niacin, one of the B vitamins in the drink, and get get flushes, but this is a low amount in the drink and this generally should not happen.
