Adderall and Alcohol Dont Mix (5 Reasons)

Now, I’m no doctor, but I don’t think a little alcohol is going to kill anyone who takes adderall regularly.

If you are a “normal” person who is prescribed adderall to treat your ADHD, and you
DO NOT ABUSE adderall, than I think that having a couple drinks at the end of the day to wind down can actually be helpful for most people.

However, if you abuse adderall and party your balls off on it -- and then get extremely drunk (cough...cough...college) than you should reconsider mixing your study drug with some jungle juice the next time you party on Thirsty Thursday. You’re just asking for trouble.

Here are some “medical reasons” mixed with my reasoning as to why
Adderall and Alcohol do not mix.

Uppers & Downers
Alcohol is a depressant and Adderall is a stimulant.  As much as I want to argue that alcohol is a stimulant for most people, it really isn’t. Just because you get excited and think you are superman, or have the balls to jump up on the bar and dance to your favorite song playing that the DJ is playing, it still doesn’t mean alcohol is an upper...I KNOW!! Totally mixed triggers. However, we all can agree that adderall (amphetamine salts) are uppers.

Mixing the two will not cancel each other out entirely.

Impaired Judgement
Adderall can hinder your ability to tell if you are too tired or too intoxicated.  Like, thinking its okay to drive, or not thinking you are drunk at all and continuing to drink. I’m a total victim to drinking more when on adderall. And normally, I’m not eating as much as I normally would on another day, so I get drunk even faster.

Body Doesn’t Have Normal Responses
It is important not to mix alcohol and stimulants, such as Adderall.  Stimulants can cause people to prolong use of alcohol, resulting in excessive consumption, which, as noted, can lead to alcohol poisoning.  Stimulants can block the depressant effect of alcohol, shutting off the warning signs to a person's body that they may be drinking too much.

Adderall & Alcohol Reviews
If you ask around, or actually read posts in ADHD forums around the web, you’ll read/hear some pretty crazy stories from people who had a terrible time drinking and taking adderall. I’ve had some of my most crazy blackouts while I had taken adderall and than decided to rage my balls off. Seriously...If I’m with someone who is on adderall and we plan on partying, I start the first toast with, “Here’s to you blacking out.” Because that is what happens when you’re cracky.

Lots of the ADHD community Among the effects on the body are vomiting, depression, anxiety, paranoia and occasionally hospitalization.

Heart Problems
Inappropriate dosing or taking with alcohol increases the risk of serious cardiovascular side effects like myocardial infarction even without underlying cardiovascular risk factors. This is true with all amphetamines.

Don’t be a statistic. Be smart when taking your mixing
adderall and alcohol. I don’t want adderall to become illegal because some jackass abused it, abused alcohol, got himself in some problems and than the mainstream media blames alcohol and adderall for the problems when its actually yours.
