Brief Answer:
Hi and welcome to HCm

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query. It is bad for stomach but not more or less then in other people who are not lactose intolerant since red bull has no lactose. It has caffeine, it is carbonated and it has high sugar and all these are irritating for stomach and duodenal mucosa. So we can say that it is not bad for stomach such as coffee or alcohol but it can lead to gastritis and heartburn if used to much. So in peopl with gastric problems it should be limited to 2-3dcl.
