Nicotine Patch and Giant Redbull - Could this induce a heart attack?
I know this is a bit late for your comment, but I think you'll be fine.

Ritalin and Atarax
This combination might increase euphoria and risk for addiction. Atarax enhances dopamine transmission in nucleus accumbens and might make stimulants, such as cocaine even more addictive.

Combining these drugs might also increase risks for other side effects such as dry mouth. Also Atarax can cause QT prolongation, which might increase risk for heart complications with higher dosages.

These risks are still somewhat minor with lower dosages, but use with caution. If you use Atarax for prolonge
