Depression Crisis and Energy drinks

I've read that drinking alcohol during a depressive episode can make it worse.
If I drink an energy drink to try and lift myself up would be a good idea?

If we are feeling very down and depressed the worse thing to do is drink alcohol as it will surpress our feelings and we end up feeling far worse, as look as it is not too many energy drinks then that is ok but not to many as we then might get hyper.

I don't think an energy drink would help - quick fixes don't work for something as complex as depression. Finding the root cause is time consuming and takes a lot of effort, but is more likely to help lift your mood in the long term x

This has really related to me because I don’t drink neither but I do drink energy drinks about two times a day. I am trying to cut down but I never thought about why I’ve been drinking so many until this post. I hope this helps and hope you feel better soon as your not alone

Sometimes having some cherry coke in the afternoon does actually help me get though that last bit of the day.
