Fatal Overdose With Alcohol

Sadly I know somebody who passed away not too long ago when he took Oxycontin along with alcoholic beverages. He was in his early 20's, and it is obvious that he had a substance abuse problem.

Isn't it true that it is well known that the interaction between Oxys and alcohol is potentially fatal?

Could it have been a suicide, or perhaps irresponsible use of prescription drugs?

This is a very sad situation, especially for his family. It is also sad how these kinds of medication are being used illegally. Situations like this should be avoidable, however, if they are being abused just like illegal drugs then why aren't the authorities cracking down on pharmaceutical distributors the way they raid coke dealers, etc? too bad.

They have been cracking down to try and prevent it, however, those who are determined still find a way to get them.

Due to changes in regulations, it has become much harder for people who do need them to get prescription narcotics, they have also outlawed all generic version of Oxycontin, in order to better keep track of the supply.

P.S. The danger of using narcotics with alcohol is very well-known and warned about for all narcotics, not just Oxycodone.
