I am wondering if Sprite (not only Coke) has caffeine in it as well. There was a time when i drank it, i had a hard time sleeping. today, i drank it and i "urinated a lot. i have tried to look at the contents but there is no caffeine written there. But honestly, dont the symptoms speak for themselves? I also have heard speculaion that Sprite does contain caffeine. So can anyone enlighten me?

Sprite doesn't have caffeine. I would know because my sister is highly sensitive to caffeine and she wouldn't be able to sleep for a week if she had a cup of coffee one morning. She could drink sprite at night and wouldn't have problem sleeping later. Maybe you urinated a lot because you drank a lot? Or maybe because of the temperature of the place you were in at the time? People tend to pee more in cold places. I don't know how "normal" people are affected by caffeine but because of a minor heart condition, I palpitate when I drink/eat stuff with caffeine :) Sprite is safe. Thanks for the response on my discussion!

Sprite does not have caffeine but it fortified with sugar so I try to limit even sprite and caffeine free drinks because I usually consume them in the evening and I usually have trouble sleeping and I feel terrible and really tired the next moring so it is best to stick with water or decaf tea with a little honey or milk .

Sprite, Royal tru orange, seven-up, mountain dew and merienda have no Caffeine, they only contained ascorbic acid. Caffeinated drinks are coke and pepsi only. But I don't drink any kind of softdrinks anymore for healthy purposes.

I dont think sprite has any caffeine in it. It does have lots and lots of sugar and empty calories so if you have a weight gain problem that you gain easily then you need to be careful of it . And all the calories you get from the carbonated drinks are empty calories meaning you dont get any energy from these calories but they add to your weight.

No, Sprite does not have caffeine. I have a heart condition that does not allow me to drink anything with caffeine in it and I do drink Sprite occassionally. I prefer Sierra Mist though. Watch out for that Sunkist Orange though as it does have caffeine. It is also made by Coke products. I had a really bad few days after drinking the Sunkist not realizing that it had caffeine. I didn't know any orange pop (soda) had caffeine so I didn't even check the ingredients.

thanks for the info, because of your experience i already know that there is no caffeine in sprite. anyway, even here in the philippines, an orange pop soda named Royal is also filled with caffeine. I think, so does Mountain Dew.
