(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - There is nationwide concern as energy drinks continue gaining popularity, especially among young consumers.

A report from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration says that trips to the emergency room have doubled in the last four years, from 10,000 to 20,000.

Doctors say those high doses of caffeine and other additives can cause a number of reactions.

In recent years, sales have risen for the top three energy drink companies--Red Bull, Monster, and Rockstar--according to the industry tracker Beverage Digest.

Their main target is young people.

In fact, a government report shows 18 to 25 year olds are the most common age group to need emergency treatment related to energy drink consumption.

The American Beverage Association argues that many of those who end up in the ER area also consuming alcohol or drugs.
