Are there any energy drinks that are safe for use and would help with RA fatigue?

When I get a big fatigue attack, usually nothing but sleep helps. But if I'm at work or someplace else where I can't stop, sometimes I try coffee, and it doesn't do anything for this type of fatigue. Does anybody have an "emergency fatigue rescue" trick that works for them when they can't lie down and sleep?

I use Oregon Chai tea (not a coffee drinker) It comes in little packets or a container. I use both...original version. It does contain caffeine. I keep a bottle mixed and ready to go in the fridge at work. Sometimes I put in the freezer for an hour (for a slurpee) if I feel myself dragging a bit. I have also been known to put
my head in my hands and doze a little sitting up. I usually have a stiff neck but I also do not feel so awful

@A myRAteam Member I'm not sure about energy drinks but Green Tea helps my energy level as well as Vitamin D3 2000. I used to get B 12 shots they are great.

I drink a large sweet tea from McDonald's, I know it's not good for me but it gives me energy. Lots of luck, I know how that fatigue is.

Hi miss Eva, I am new to this site, and newly diagnosed with RA. I can relate to your situation as I too have a fatigue problem. You may want to try a Whole Foods store, or a health/vitamin store for a natural energy supplement/drink. Yerba Mate, ginseng, and panax ginseng are a few natural sources of energy, and I am sure someone will assist you while you are there. take care of yourself and avoid overdoing anything because with RA, it doesn't take much to get tired right? hope this helps and may God bless you!!!!
