I am new to the board , I am on triliptal and klonopin ( sorry if I missed spelled) for Bipolar 1 and I was just wondering if any one has been able to drink on either one of these meds or both?

Re: alcohol?

I was on Lithium and could not drink on it. Lithium is also used for treatment of alcholism.

Re: alcohol?

Hi Kitty

I'm not on either of the meds you've mentioned, but I think the general advice is to avoid alcohol. It's a nightmare for mood swings anyway, and I haven't heard of a med yet that it's okay to drink with. Sorry! (If it's any consolation I got used to not drinking quite quickly and no longer have a 'taste' for it)

Re: alcohol?

I'm on 900mg Neurontin, 25mg Lamicatal, 2mg. Klonopin, and Amoxicilian. I drank of the weekend. Not much. Just one Coors Light. And I got banned from this one bar downtown because I started a fight with a guy that called me stuck up. Yeah... it can be dangerous.

Re: alcohol?

2 or 3 on rare occasions (neither one of us drink that much) and my BF is fine (he's on a lot of meds) but too much too fast and he's sick as a dog (this has only happened twice that I've seen). From everything that I've seen from everyone, abstinence is best but if you do have something, s l o w and moderate. I take klonopin for sleep and I'm fine. So the other factor, as always, I'm sure is body chemistry.
