Several High School Students Experience Maladies After Drinking Energy Drinks

Four Colorado high schools have issued warned to students about the dangers of a new locally-produced energy drink, SPIKE Shooter by Biotest Laboratories, a Colorado Springs company which is marketed in Colorado and California.

Reports say that several teenagers sought medical facilities after drinking an eight-ounce can of SPIKE Shooter. One can has the equivalent of three cups of coffee, plus several other herbal stimulants. Each can carries a warning that it is not for use by those under the age of 16 or the elderly.


Some high schools have already banned the drink on campus and the school persuaded a nearby convenience store to remove it from the shelves. Reports also said that several students experienced shortness of breath, heart palpitations and nausea after drinking just one can.
