caffeine tablets

Aloha,
While I consider most energy drinks to be caffeinated sugar water flavored with some nutrients, the truth is that anyone can for more than several decades go into any drug store and buy caffeine tablets. Each tablet is 200mg of caffeine which is more than most energy drinks on the market today.The people who had adverse reactions to energy drinks were either sensitive to caffeine or drank more than the can or bottle states should be consumed in a day.No one is talking about banning caffeine tablets.
