Hi Guys n Gals,
Haven’t been around for a while, not too much has changed for me though I’m definately learning to cope better now day to day, mainly just through time having past. I’ve accepted this is here to stay for a while, and can manage it now and know what to expect. Sorry to see new people on here as invariably that means more people affected, but I hope everyone is doing as well as they can do. Good to hear from Muppo!
My post is to ask, has anyone continued drinking alcohol whilst a) suffering with this MAV crap and b) taking any of the following- nortriptyline, topamax or propranolol?
When this first hit, I didn’t drink for a long time. But as I’ve been able to cope with the symptoms better, I have felt able to get out and about more often and as a young sociable girl, alcohol plays a part in my social life. I know propranolol says not to drink, and Nort says to avoid drink or you could become drowsy… But to be honest, I have ignored this.
My questions are
Am I doing myself any damage by ignoring these warnings? I know they must be there for a reason, am I being very silly?
Does anyone else suffer from HORRENDOUS hangovers with any of these medications?? I have always suffered from bad hangovers, in fact even on a sober day with MAV, I feel hungover ;-), but last night I had 2 glasses of wine and 2 pints, and I am so hungover today it is unreal.
