Energy drinks if it is like red bull it contains glucuronolactone;taurine;vitamin B;caffiene sucrose and glucose;some contain ginseng also.There are side effects like headache;nausea anxiety ;tachycardia etc but there is no study showing that the labor will be delayed.But since you are pregnant please do not use it again.
Take care.
