Re: Can I drink alcohol while on 0.5 mg of Klonopin (Clonazepam)?

From my personal experience of taking psychotropic drugs for bipolar (mirtazapine, carbamazapine, diazepam), I wouldn't mix them with alcohol and definately not that volume of alcohol.

In the early days I didn't see why my life should have to be different from everyone else I socialised with - so I arrogantly continued drinking. However, I had to stop becuase being on the meds just send me 'mad' when I drank. I would think I was invincible and wouldn't think twice of starting a violent argument (and I'm only little).

There is also the memory probs associcated with psychotropic med use and alcohol at the same time. I could never fully remember when I had been drinking.

Hope you have a good evening, whatever you choose to do,

Nut.
