Just saw a report that a couple drinks and an OxyContin at night can kill you. Over 39,000 college students per year die from it.
The drug when mixed with alcohol causes the part of the brain that tells you to breathe when sleeping to stop. So unless the person is right with someone in the night who is awake, that is it, they die. It is possible to resuscitate and get them an ambulance. Very small window of time here.
This was presented by Bill Clinton at George Town University prior to his giving out some college awards. Saw it tonight. This is a very big deal so please pass the word. People don't know and give it a try. Scary stuff.
