> Could you please clarify something for me. Even if GHB is not dangerous on its own, is it dangerous with alcohol, or were those stories trumped up as well? Thanks.

Good question. I don't drink but at certain doses, for some, the effects of GHB can be similar to alcohol. If you drink for it's inihibiting effects or anxiety there is no need for it. Well, heck there is really no need for alcohol at all. There are no health-benefits from it (exception red wine). But that's another issue. Anyways, to your question...

GHB should not be used with benzodiazepines phenothiazines, various painkillers, alcohol, or anticonvulsants. I've had no problem at doses @ 2.5 grams and a benzo once. Basically CNS depressants with GHB are not a good idea.

"Although contraindications for GHB have been described as “remarkably few” [Vickers, 1969], those who suffer from any of the following conditions should not use GHB: severe illness of any kind, epilepsy, eclampsia (convulsions), bradycardia (slowed heart-beat) due to conduction problems [left-bundle-branch-block is an example of conduction difficulty], Cushing’s syndrome, severe cardiovascular disease, hyperprolactinemia, and severe hypertension [Gallimberti, 1989; Vickers, 1969]."
