Energy drinks have become readily available and are being utilized globally. However, the potential side effects of their use are not well understood. Most consumers use these beverages with the goal of increasing energy. However, unintended ramifications of energy drinks may include increased sympathetic drive, endothelial dysfunction, and mitigation of coronary blood flow. A few reports have brought to light the rare phenomenon of myocardial infarction occurring secondary to energy drink consumption. We present this case of a young healthy man who suffered a myocardial infarction requiring emergent coronary intervention to contribute to the limited literature available on this topic. The increasing popularity and use of energy drinks necessitates further investigation into their unintended cardiac complications.
