taking for about 4 months. I drink an occasional drink and have never had any problems. I drank several drinks tonight and can't fall asleep and my heart is racing. I looked up side effects online and don't see anything about drinking alcohol.
What are side effects when taking adderall and drinking alcohol? I am on 20 mg and have been?

My heart is still racing and I haven't slept plus I am having a hard time concentrating. I was out on a first date last night and am wondering if he put something in my drink?

It has been over 12 hours since I had a drink and its been over 24 hours since I took my last pill.
It's amphetamine, the only side effect I remember is not being able to feel the effects of the alcohol as easily when I drank while taking it. It dehydrated me worse than usual due to alcohol also dehydrates aka hangovers. So that's all I can remember.
In my opinion, when i do this, I get no effect from the alcohol (well beer anyways) but it ramps up my adderall wayyyy high with a more euphoric edge. You will get rowdy as hell lol. Put on some Waka Flocka and It's pretty much the recipe for turn up but have fun trying to sleep for the next couple days... End up cleaning my house frantically at like 5am lol.
So my advice, stick to beer, have fun, and try and get some sleep afterwards lol
