Energy drinks are so powerful they’re sending people to the hospital by the thousands, according to a new study. Researchers say the number of people rushed to the ER after drinking the stuff now stands at 20,000 every year. Increased blood pressure, irregular heartbeat and panic attacks are just some of the symptoms involved.

According to ABC News, “Of those 20,000 ER visits in 2011, 42 percent had mixed the energy drink with another stimulant such as Adderal or Ritalin or with alcohol. Fifty-eight percent had consumed just the drink.”
