Hello,

Interactions between your selected drugs

ethanol ↔ milnacipran
Applies to: Alcohol (contained in alcoholic beverages) (ethanol), Savella (milnacipran)
Talk to your doctor before using milnacipran together with ethanol. Milnacipran may cause liver damage, and taking it with alcohol may increase that risk. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with milnacipran. Call your doctor immediately if you have fever, chills, joint pain or swelling, excessive tiredness or weakness, unusual bleeding or bruising, skin rash or itching, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, dark colored urine, or yellowing of the skin or the whites of your eyes, as these may be symptoms of liver damage. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.

I'm not sure why people want to kill their liver with booze, particulaly when they have to take medication. I will repeat myself until I'm purple, its never a good idea to drink when you are taking medication.
