Before I started drinking Redbull's I did some research on the possiable side effects. After reading your post I did a search on taurine. I found plenty of info, but no warnings as to the long term effects it will have on the CNS (central nervous system).
Anyway, the one or two a week I drink over the course of a hockey season doesn't seem to be anything alarming, at least not me. The sole reason I drink them is because I play very very late at night and while coffee will wake me up, it won't get me up to play.
Of course I'm no doctor so it's not like I have any first hand info on it.
