What You Should Know
Pic Me Up is a cute name for a common product. We find caffeine supplements all over the market from crazy products like caffeinated oatmeal to more interesting products like caffeinated lip balm. Pic Me Up is a more classic product – caffeine in pill form. This time around the product is marketed to truckers who need an energy boost to keep driving. Truck drivers should not take energy pills in place of sleep. Caffeine is only effective temporarily and will not prevent sleep. If the body becomes extremely fatigued, caffeine will not stop you from falling asleep at the wheel of your truck or vehicle. Pic Me Up does not have an official website but we found the product on several caffeine product shops.
List of Ingredients
- Vitamin C
When it comes time to pit in eight hours or more behind the wheel of a big rig, you may find yourself lulled to sleep by the constant hum of the truck tires. Pic Me Up claims to be an effective energy booster for truckers who need to increase energy without the crash. The ingredient list for the supplement is quite interesting as the ingredients take up only a small portion of the label – the rest is dedicated to warning the user about the possible side effects of taking caffeine.
So, how much caffeine is in one dose of Pic Me Up? There is just 175 mg of caffeine. That was a bit of a surprise as most caffeine pills contain at least 200 mg. There is also 25 mg of vitamin C in the mix. The product label claims there is 200 mg of caffeine and 25 mg of vitamin C, so there could be an issue with total caffeine reporting.
Pic Me Up is no different from other energy boosters on the market. You could take straight caffeine or choose to drink coffee and get the same energy boost. In terms of weight loss, the caffeine content will increase metabolism and energy, but it could also increase hunger as the body burns more calories.

Pic Me Up is marketed to truckers, but there are no ingredients listed that make this product unique to the trucker world. This supplement is vitamin C and caffeine and nothing more. This product will increase energy and could help keep the trucker awake and alert when he’s feeling tired, but caffeine products are not a substitute for sleep.
