You guys don't really understand the medicine. It reacts with alcohol, making a heavy poison and killing you. A glass of beer can throw you unconscious and put you in hospital. Not fun.

Just so you people know, drinking while taking medication will not mean instant death. The major interaction is alcohol and other depressants having an additive effect. Other medications will make you very nauseated if you drink, including metronidazole and Antabuse.

Interesting 133, I thought the point of prom was to create memories with your friends that you'll cherish beyond high school. Not go out and get illegally wasted and risk alcohol poisoning. Drinking underage doesn't make you cool and it's dangerous.

80 - there is no medication in existence that, when mixed with one beer, will render you unconscious. It doesn't exist. Antabuse will make you very nauseated if you drink while taking it, but it won't kill you.

You obviously haven't been to Australian balls or ball afters. Besides, in Australia, the people going to balls are either a year from being of age or of age. So drinking is pretty common. It's not about getting so drunk you're vomiting, just about being silly.

Oh yeah. "Let's go and drink alcohol which isn't supposed to be mixed with my medication. It will probably kill me, but at least it will teach my stupid mom a lesson to not be so bossy about me drinking underage just because she cares and wants the best for me." Idiot.

well you know it says that but I'm still alive. it increases the effect of the medicine so if it's for a minor illness or something like that it wouldn't kill you to drink one or two. just don't overdo it.

Exactly my thoughts. You can't have a good prom without drinking? Don't go. You're barely, if even, 18 years old. I don't know if you know this, but the legal age in NY is the same as in the rest of the US: 21. i don't care how many of you drink before 21, nor about alcohol not being bad; the fact is that a high school senior is too young to legally drink. You don't wanna die from mixing your meds with alcohol? Don't fucking drink. Your mom's not trying to kill you, she's keeping you from being an idiot in a foolproof way. Now, if you're stupid enough to drink, knowing the dangers of mixing alcohol and your medication.. Congrats on your future Darwin Award-- It'll be well deserved.

Where im from the legal age is 18 and if people want to drink at their proms i think its perfectly acceptable as bad as it sounds they will probably enjoy themselves more

@33 Personnally, I think that this whole over-age/under-age debate is way overrated. In most of the US it's illegal to drink till your 21. In most of Europe you have to be 18 at the least. Up until last year a 16-year-old could legally purchase hard liquor in my homecountry. It's not so much about the age, as it is about responsibility. Every nation has its idiots and they're not confined to a certain age group. Just as there are 14-year-olds who drink themselves into a coma, there also are 16-year-olds who drink with more responsibility than a few 30-year-olds. Really, you can change the law any way you want, in the end it depends on the person.
