abstract
The non-medical use of prescription stimulants (NMPS) used to treat Attention Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is common among college students. Research shows that NMPS users often consume more alcohol than non-NMPS users. However, there is limited research on the simultaneous use of NMPS and alcohol. Simultaneous polydrug use refers to the use of two drugs on the same occasion (i.e., on the same evening). In contrast, concurrent polydrug use refers to the use of two substances over the same period of time (i.e., the past year).
