Drinking alcohol after taking vicodin?

My friend is planning on taking 3 vicodin before our prom tonight and then drinking about 5 hours after taking the vicodin, obviously it isn't safe but can anything really bad happen?

    Probably nothing will. I was on it for broken bones and always got drunk. The reason it's not the safest idea is because Vicodin depresses your respiratory system meaning your relaxed so you breath slower and less often. Alcohol also does the same so both combined makes that affect worse so how people die from it is they literally forget to breath and suffocate to death but normally in there sleep also known as sleep apnea. It's pretty much safe but that's the worst case. Back when i mixed the 2 I some times would wait till i sobered up a little before going to bed because i would notice how slow i was breathing from feeling so relaxed. Both are also hard on the liver so combined are extra hard but I never heard of it causing sudden liver damage or failure.
