Black outs with Adderall and Wine

I take adderall for my ADHD. I also drink alot of wine. Like way too much. Like about two bottles a night, sometimes three.

Occasionally, I will just black out and not remember what else happened that night. Sometimes, it will happen when I haven't even been drinking that much. I will black out, and wake up with a cigarette in my hand in my chair. (I smoke alot). Its scary (and not its not the same as being drunk).

Anyways, does this happen to anyone else?

This is one for the "bad idea" file.

Does this happen to anyone else?

Yes, but not for very long.

Adderall is a stimulant and when mixed with alcohol keeps you conscious long past the point drinking yourself into oblivion. So, you keep drinking, two or more often three bottles a night.

It's alcohol poisoning that's causing the blackouts. The alcohol is poisoning your liver.

Keep this up and one morning you'll wake up dead.

Get some help with your substance abuse problem before it is too late.

Wow Hope1992ope,

philnoir is correct.  This is a horribly unsafe practice.  Please do not do this again.  If you cannot stop the impulse to drink when taking stimulants you really should consider getting help because this could one day be fatal.  Take care and get help!
