Fatal overdose may occur when alcohol is combined with other depressants such as opiates, benzodiazepines, barbiturates, gabapentinoids, thienodiazepines or other GABAergic substances.[1]

It is strongly discouraged to combine these substances, particularly in common to heavy doses.


Alcohol is among the most used drugs

"There is no safe amount that does not affect health" (World Health Organization 2023).[2] Also, the WHO organization International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) lists ethanol as a Group 1 carcinogen in humans.[3] Alcohol is the most harmful drug overall, and the only drug more harmful to others than to users (2010 DrugScience study).[4] The therapeutic index for ethanol is only 10%.[5]
