I had 1 night last week where I drnak so much and did all of these things I dont remember doing... i even threw a hairbrush at my roommate...now I cant even drink any alcohol without feeling sick and grossed out by it.
my question is, is it a big problem to take Ritalin and drink?? I started drinking after it should've wore off or at least started to wear off, but i heard it could have very bad side effects to mix the two.. should I limit myself to only 1 or 2 drinks?
Well, it certainly isn't recommended to mix the two. You certainly should take precautions, if not avoid alcohol.
