Mixing Prosom and Alcohol
Many of the signs of Prosom abuse are similar to alcohol abuse symptoms. For example, someone who is abusing one or both of these substances may experience changes in mood and behavior, problems with speech and coordination, and slow muscle movement. Over time, the symptoms of Prosom and alcohol abuse can become even more severe. For example, people may experience cognitive deficiencies, memory problems, anxiety, depression and physical health deterioration.
Both Prosom and alcohol are central nervous system depressants. When someone combines Prosom and alcohol, the short-term effects of each will be amplified since they are similar. A person may seem extremely uncoordinated and intoxicated. Someone who mixes Prosom and alcohol may have slurred speech, seem clumsy and lack of control over motor coordination. Additionally, when two substances that slow the central nervous system are taken together, the combination can cause profound respiratory depression. A person may stop breathing altogether, which is what happens during an overdose. An overdose from combining a benzo and alcohol can be fatal.
Over the long term, mixing Prosom and alcohol can cause ongoing fatigue, memory loss and mood swings; it can also damage relationships with loved ones. Using multiple substances at the same time can also increase the chances of becoming addicted to one or both. Essentially, mixing Prosom and alcohol significantly increases the risks of each substance. There is also a very serious risk of combining Prosom with opioids. Opioids are prescription painkillers that depress the central nervous system. Mixing Prosom and opioids can (and often does) result in overdoses because of extreme respiratory depression.
