People suffer different reactions when they mix alcohol with amphetamines depending on the person. However generally the 2 medications should not be taken together because one of them is a depressant and the other is a stimulant so they would counteract each others effect. The Adderall may cause you to require more alcohol to achieve the desired effect which might cause you to take larger amounts of alcohol than you usually would which can put your liver in danger. Either avoid drinking or skip a dose of Mydayis (if you can).
sophigirl; Sorry our drug Interaction is listed as Moderate. then says.dextroamphetamine ethanol
Applies to: Mydayis (amphetamine/dextroamphetamine), Alcohol (contained in alcoholic beverages) (ethanol)
GENERALLY, AVOID: Ethanol may potentiate the cardiovascular effects of amphetamines. The exact mechanism of interaction is unknown. In one study, concurrent administration of methamphetamine (30 mg intravenously) and ethanol (1 gm/kg orally over 30 minutes) increased heart rate by 24 beats/minute compared to methamphetamine alone. This increases cardiac work and myocardial oxygen consumption, which may lead to more adverse cardiovascular effects than either agent alone. Subjective effects of ethanol were diminished in the eight study subjects, but those of methamphetamine were not affected. The pharmacokinetics of methamphetamine were also unaffected except for a decrease in the apparent volume of distribution at steady state. The interaction was suspected in a case report of a 20-year-old male who experienced retrosternal chest pain shortly after drinking alcohol and taking a double dose of his amphetamine/dextroamphetamine medication (Adderall 15 mg X 2) to stay alert. The patient had no family history of cardiovascular diseases, and his past medical history was remarkable only for ADHD. Prior to the episode, the patient had not taken his medication for weeks and had been drinking whiskey the previous three nights before going to bed. The patient was diagnosed with myocardial infarction likely secondary to amphetamine-induced coronary vasospasm.
MANAGEMENT: Concomitant use of amphetamines and ethanol should be avoided if possible, especially in patients with a history of heart disease.))) this is a copy and paste from our drug Interaction I put it with alcohol NOW THE MAIN THING IS ANY HEART PROBLEMS NOWAY SHOULD YOU DRINK AND YOU WOULD HAVE TO HOLD OFF FOR AROUND 2 WEEKS BEFORE TAKING A DRINK BECAUSE OF YOU DRUG LEVEL. sorry to be a killjoy ps also it Makes the alcohol stronger. You can back this up with your Pharmacist or Doctor don't be scared they are people too and also have a drink from time to time it's just best to be safe than sorry. Chuck1957
