Brief answer...Mixing the two can cause severe side effects.
Detailed answer....
Thanks for the query.
It is a XXXXXXX combination of Adderall and alcohol.
Adderall contains amphetamines and is a stimulant medication used for treating ADHD or sleep disorders like narcolepsy.
The person using Adderall makes him alert and over rides the effect of alcohol and makes  the person think that he can drink more alcohol.Due to this effect,person may drink excessive amount of alcohol unknowingly,which may result in increased cardiovascular side effects like increased heart rate,blood pressure changes,chest pain etc and also may cause acute alcohol intoxication.
In fact the person is never advised to use Adderall ,if he has a history of alcohol abuse.
If a person taking Adderall feels severe headache or chest pain or pounding heart beats after taking alcohol,he must immediately report to ER.
I hope it helps however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
