If Amber is mixing alcohol and Klonopin the results could be fatal according to an expert!

Is Teen Mom star Amber Portwood, 20, heading down a dangerous road? We already knew she was prescribed the anti-anxiety medication Klonopin, but a new report from Life & Style is now alleging that Amber has been mixing her pills with alcohol! According to the mag, which published photos of Amber with a bottle reportedly full of vodka, Amber told partygoers that she was also taking prescription pills. The Anderson, Indiana, Police Dept. tells us that underage drinking is considered a misdemeanor, and because Amber wasn’t caught in the act of drinking, she probably won’t be prosecuted.

Dr. Andrea Barthwell of Two Dreams Outerbanks tells us Klonopin and alcohol can be a fatal combination. ”If Klonopin is prescribed for anxiety and other issues, alcohol is only going to make that worse,” Dr. Barthwell says. “Young people generally drink to get intoxicated anyway, however with the combination of the two you may pass out, you may go into a coma.”

The photos came out Nov. 17th in Life & Style showing Amber at a party with a bottle of vodka. According to the magazine she was telling partygoers she was taking prescription pills. Not only is Amber mixing booze with her prescriptions, she is also drinking underage. According to the Anderson In. Police Department, underage drinking is a misdemeanor and wont likely be a crime they can prosecute, since they didn’t catch her in the act.
