CABRERIZO, Silvia  and  DOCAMPO, Patricia C.. Mixture of alcohol and drugs: a frequent form of abuse. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2010, vol.108, n.5, pp.e111-e113. ISSN 0325-0075.

"Jarra loca" is a mixture of alcohol and prescription drugs. Sometimes, these are added to alcohol without the knowledge of the user. In recent years, adolescents mixed psychotropic drugs and hypoglycemic agents to reach the drowsiness and anxiety of hypoglycemia. We present five patients, one adolescent and four young adults, from Buenos Aires and the metropolitan area, followed up in the National Poisoning Center. They consumed this mixture with serious toxic manifestations and a high mortality rate.

Keywords : Alcohol and drugs; Oral hypoglycemic agents; Prescription drugs abuse.
