Anyone have any experiences while drinking alcohol and taking elavil? On the package insert it says to use caution while drinking, but it says that on a lot of inserts. I've been on one antidepressant or another for years now and never had a problem. I just started Elavil and went out drinking twice in the first month or two without any problems (but since I take it before bed and drinking makes me forgetful, I would forget to take it when I got home). The other night my friends and I were going out and I didn't want to forget to take it again, so I took it before we left. I had less drinks than either of the other nights and actually had to be carried out of the bar. It was the worst experience I've ever had drinking and I barely had anything to drink. It also seemed to cause a major flare. Just wondering if this has happened to anyone else. I'd like to be certain it was the mix of the two and not that someone dropped something into my drink.
