My husband and I went to a friends house for football party. So much food and drinks. I'm not a big alchol drinker. BUT..last night I tried several different party cocktails.oh my gosh, not good. Anyways when I came home I took my nightly Trazodone as usual and went to sleep. Woke up at 5 am feeling like a mac truck had ran over my head, and backed up on it a few times. Is this the alchol and Trazodone? I've never drank on it before, so I'm not sure what to expect. Any one whose been there done that, have any insight? Would be greatly appreciated... thanks Taylor
Sometimes, people are warned to avoid alcohol while taking trazodone hydrochloride. This is because alcohol and medicines like trazodone act upon similar chemicals in the brain. The concern is that trazodone will increase the effects of alcohol -- whether this is increasing symptoms of depression or affecting motor skills.
The recommended amount of alcohol allowed when being on Trazodone is: 12 ounces of beer; 5 ounces of wine; 1 ounces of 80-proof whiskey or 1 ounce of 100-proof spirits.
Please do not mix the 2 together, it could aggravate the side effects of the med. take care.
taylor tu tu, not a good mixture, for alcohol and sleep meds, or opiates can and has proven to be fatal. take care, helpmehawaii
You are Lucky to have woken up, but we live and learn eh. Please be careful
