Mixing Adderall with Alcohol:
  • One drink won't hurt, but if you are out drinking with friends or drink every day the two simply don't mix. The alcohol can enhance or take away the effects of the drug.
  • I recently started my prescription for Adderall. I take 20 mg xr and I didn't even think about it this evening when we went to a local brew pub party. I'm not much of a drinker, but I did have probably 3-4 glasses, which is more than enough for me, and I experienced no ill side effects. I don't think I am "more alert" than I would have been without taking the adderall, but I am very irritable. I'm usually a "happy" drinker, but when I got home and tried to call my husband at the party, when he didn't answer I became very angry (not normal) and I was hostile. I'm sure that everyone reacts different, and perhaps that wouldn't happen to someone else, but that was a weird enough experience for me to look this up and see what other people say. As for mixing the two, I don't think I would be afraid to do it again, but I might remember that I get angry instead of happy and try to control that.
  • Personally I find that drinking alcohol while taking stimulants isn't a pleasant experience. Instead of feeling happy and fun instead I feel tired, heavy, and slow. I can tell when the alcohol wears off (after drinking only one or two drinks) because I suddenly feel much better. They don't go well together as one is a depressant and the other a stimulant. It's like your brain is a rubber band and being pulled in both directions.

Can you drink alcohol while taking Adderall?

No, you should not take Adderall while drinking because Adderall is an upper and alcohol is a downer(or a depressant).Mixing these two can result in you having a heart attack, or cardiac arrest. It mainly depends on the volume of alcohol compared to the milligrams of Adderall though. Smaller doses are your best bet if you are to mix these drugs together.No, it is never good to mix medicines with alcohol.

How long does it take before you can drink after snorting 30mg of adderall?

I would say that you should not drink after taking Adderall, especially after snorting 30mg of it. Adderall is not meant for snorting, it is not meant to be entered into the bloodstream this quickly and can cause adverse reactions, plus increase your chances of getting hooked on it. That said, any amphetamine (including meth) will mask your drinking symptoms, so many people will take uppers and then drink loads. The problem is that when you come down off of the Adderall you will most likely be a lot drunker than you normally would be. I would recommend to not drink within a day of taking Adderall, but there are people who drink in moderation and take the drug. Just whatever you do, be careful to limit your intake of alcohol to avoid blacking out or alcohol poisoning. Good luck.


Can you drink if you have taken Adderall?

I would recommend it. Adderall absorbs the alcohol and you feel as if you havnt started drinking at all. Your body and mind are being fooled by adderall. If you do decide to drink be responsible because one drink feels the same as 10 drinks
