You may want to post on the medical side of AVVO. Our firm's legal nurse consultant suggests that you see your phsician to screen for various ailments that might make you react: sugar, caffeine, etc.
As to suing an energy drink company for producing an energy drink? Stranger things have worked in the past.
We do not have a client/attorney relationship until you make an appointment, we discuss your case face to face, I accept a retainer, and we explictly agree to enter into representation.
If the warning was inadequate you may be able to bring a claim against the manufacture; however there are no prescription components so there are no governmental warnings.
You should consult with an attorney specializing in personal injury matters.
Can you sue them? Sure. Your biggest hurdle, however, would be convincing a jury (or the manufacturer's insurance company) that the drink CAUSED your fainting and hospitalization. Doing so may require some extensive medical testing, likely at your cost.
If you feel strongly that you're a physically fit person and have never had fainting spells like this before, you should contact a personal injury attorney in your area and ask to meet with them regarding your possible.
