TLDR
Correlations between cortisol and DHEA levels and some physiological and psychological effects are consistent with animal data suggesting that hormones modulate some responses to drugs of abuse.
Human Pharmacology of the methamphetamine stereoisomers
Cocaethylene formation following ethanol and cocaine administration by different routes.
TLDR
The oral route was significantly greater than from the smoked route and showed a trend toward significance for greater formation of cocaethylene compared to the intravenous route, and the cocaine-ethanol combination produced greater increases in heart rate and rate-pressure product than cocaine alone.
