[Erowid Note: The dose described in this report is very high, potentially beyond Erowid's 'heavy' range, and could pose serious health risks or result in unwanted, extreme effects. Sometimes extremely high doses reported are errors rather than actual doses used.]

I don't know why but one Friday night me and a couple friends decided it would be cool to ingest mass amounts of caffeine. We took 2 NoDoz each and realized it did nothing and drank some Red Bull. When we again felt nuthing we took more and I ended up taking 18 pills and drink 3 different energy drinks.

We went into a store and I felt as if I was cutting through the air and moving extremely fast when I was simply walking. We met up with other friends while there and decided to go to one of their houses. I had to make the person driving me stop and pull over so I could throw up because I felt terrible. Then I thought I was fine. But I definatley was not.

We got to the house about 2 blocks away and I began to feel extremely sick. I went outside to puke and ended up curling up in a ball and sitting in the driveway. Everything seemed so unreal at the time. I got home and threw up all night. I had nuthing in my stomach but I was just throwing up what I thought was blood or the lining of my stomach. I couldn't say anything to my mom or anyone because I didn't want to get in trouble for being so stupid.

So for the rest of the weekend I lied in bed and vomited. Finally on Sunday I stopped puking and was keeping liquid down. Mostly water because anything else burned going down because my throat was destroyed. The sick feeling last for about another 2 weeks and still to this day I can't drink energy drinks or even smell them without getting sick. I don't care what anyone says I would never touch NoDoz again.
