Adderall and alcohol: What you need to know : Medical News Today


Adderall is most commonly used to treat attention-deficient hyperactivity disorder or ADHD. According to research, many people who use Adderall drink alcohol while taking the medication.

2013 study found that 46.4 percent of students who used Adderall non-medically had simultaneously used alcohol within the past year.

Another study found that 19 percent of people surveyed, who were prescribed Adderall to treat ADHD, intentionally misused their medication while drinking alcohol.

Although many people do it, mixing alcohol and Adderall can be life-threatening, especially when people consume them at the same time.
