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 ( 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.
