Drugs and Alcohol Don't Mix

Mixing alcohol and drugs can be extremely dangerous.  There can be numerous harmful, unwanted effects which students and the University of Toledo community should be aware of.

  • Depressants : Mixing depressants, such as Xanax or Valium, can cause rapid dizziness, stumbling, loss of sphincter control, memory loss and potential death.
  • Stimulants : Combining stimulants, such as Ritalin, Adderall and Concerta, with alcohol can result in over-consumption.  The effect stimulants exert on the body conceal alcohol’s effects, so the individual cannot accurately perceive their level of intoxication.  This often results in over-consumption which can lead to blacking out, passing out and even death.
  • Prescription Opiates : Consuming alcohol in combination with prescription opiates (such as Vicodin, OxyContin and Percocet) can result in slowed or arrested breathing, lowered pulse and blood pressure, unconsciousness, coma and potential death.
  • Marijuana: Mixing marijuana with alcohol can lead to vomiting, spins, paranoia, decreased motor control and mental concentration. Marijuana also depresses your gag reflex, which can be fatal if you need to expel alcohol and are unable to.
  • Amphetamines : Amphetamines elicit an increase in blood pressure and heart rate when consumed.  Consuming alcohol in conjunction with amphetamines is dangerous as the individual is more likely to consume more alcohol, as the drug stimulates the individual.  This combination is also extremely harmful to your kidneys.

Harm Reduction Strategies

  • Eat and drink water before and in between drinking 
  • Set a limit and track your drinks and understand your own limits 
  • Never leave your drink unattended at a party/bar and do NOT MIX
  • Do NOT mix alcohol and drugs together
  • Pace yourself: Consume no more than one drink per hour
