increases the effect of the methylphenidate

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Alcohol can increase the levels of methylphenidate by increasing the amount of methylphenidate that is absorbed by the body.

This means that a person may experience more side effects from the methylphenidiate

This is the main possible interaction
