firebird8 Posted February 1, 2009 Share Posted February 1, 2009 I've never been all that impressed with being drunk, fortunately, considering the number of meds I'm on right now. I recently started Topamax, for the migraines, and after 4 days I love the stuff. It's the first relief I've had in years. Anyways. Yadda yadda yadda with the soda/taste changes, so far no brain/behavior problems. Here's my thing. Sometimes, in a social situation, I want to have one, maybe two drinks. This might come up every 2 or 3 months. I'm also on (to list only relevant stuff) Cymbalta, Advair, Combivent and I have prn prescriptions for Ambien and Ativan. All the others I've questioned the pharmacist closely and been told that as long as I'm really doing what I'm saying I'm doing (as in, not looking for clearance to get drunk a lot) it's okay once in a while. The Topamax says not to drink at all while taking it. I had about half a mudslide yesterday and just felt really really sleepy. Usually that much alcohol I wouldn't feel at all (part of why I don't bother to get drunk - it takes way more alcohol than I care to consume - if I want mood-altering, a handful of sugar and some caffeine is easier).
