There should be no doubt in anyone's mind that nothing good comes from mixing alcohol with any drug or narcotic. If someone chooses to go down that path, they are creating a potentially dangerous situation for themselves. Unfortunately, amateur chemists are walking among us. Someone figured out that mixing a stimulant like Adderall with a depressive like alcohol causes an interesting reaction. In hopes we can prevent others from trying this same experiment, we want to discuss below the inherent danger of using Adderall and alcohol at the same time. Adderall and Alcohol - Not Good Partners The notion of mixing drugs and alcohol is not new. For generations, people have been using this practice to get a certain desirable result. For instance, mixing alcohol with another depressant is a good way for someone to induce sleep. There are other combinations of drugs with alcohol where the effects of both substances offset each other. In both scenarios, there's a lot of danger lurking when playing chemist. When mixing Adderall and alcohol, the effects would fall into the second category. If someone is drinking a lot and doesn't want to fall asleep, a hit of Adderall will usually keep them awake. Alternatively, someone might be taking Adderall to stay awake. When they finally decide it's time to sleep, they might resort to alcohol to help bring themselves down off their high. To this point, we have spoken of dangers. What dangers? The Dangers Associated With Mixing Adderall and Alcohol To impress upon others just how dangerous it is to mix Adderall and Alcohol, we want to make clear what might happen. While using both substances at the same time, it's possible the user will question whether either substance is working. That might prompt the user to increase their intake of one or both substance. It's only possible to do this so much before the user faces the possibility of a drug overdose or alcohol poisoning. As we indicated above, the reaction from using both substances at the same time could be unpredictable. In other words, something bad could happen that no one expected. Remember, everyone metabolizes substances differently. For some people, a certain combination of substances could cause heart problems or seizures. Finally, when using both substances too frequently, the user could create an addiction to both substances. Experts refer to this as poly-substance abuse or co-occurring substance use disorders. It's no fun going through a residential alcohol treatment center in Lantana Florida option for one addiction. It's twice as bad trying to arrest two addictions at the same time.
