Barbiturates causing strokes????(Melrose Place)

I was watching Melrose Place last night and apparently one of the 
characters had a stroke on account of drinking alcohol laced with 
phenylbarbitol.  Afterwards, I kept think, how the hell phenylbarbitol 
and alcohol cause a stroke?  She might have died, ya, but get a stroke?  
Did I miss something here or is there an actual, logical explanation on 
how barbiturates cause a stroke?  Then again it _is_ Melrose Place and I 
shouldn't take anything seriously from it :)

Oh the acting, the realism, the drama.
