It depends on what you determine as "bad" for your health. Caffeine intoxication and a few other related problems are officially recognized in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders IV (DSM-IV) as well as the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-10). It appears that exposure greater than 400 mg can cause some problems, however there is no evidence for a prevalence of any irreversible problems in healthy individuals (no heart disease, no cancer, etc.). There may be a few problems that come with the strong diuretic effects associated with it, leading to possible dehydration, and problems associated with that.

Too tired to formally cite, but:

depends on what is in the drink for energy some are better than others just read the ingrediants, but all used responsibly are fine
