I'm just curious.. I know the drug warning says I shouldn't drive or operate machinery, etc if I'm using Daytrana and decide to drink alcohol. I've never had a drink while on Daytrana or any other ADD med.. I'm just wondering if any of you had and whether or not you'd recommend it.

Thanks. :)

Well, drinking while on any psych meds is something to be extremely cautious about, though stimulants not so much, so remember to take it very slow as your tolerance may be altered. Sometimes stimulants decrease the sensation of being drunk, but you really did imbibe despite how amazingly sober you think you feel. It'll catch up, I promise.


That being said, I'm drinking a bottle of beer and I'm wearing my Daytrana patch still. Be cognizant of your alcohol intake, and be cautious.

Thanks for your input! I've always been cautious - never had a drink while on any of my previous meds. :)
