Does anyone drink beer or other alcohol while taking this? I start on it tonight, increasing every 5 days to 900 mg total a day. I'm curious as to how much alcohol can be tolerated and if there are any reasons to avoid it completely. I like my Budweiser. Thanks for any input.

I've been taking 900 mg of gabapentin a day for about 2 months, this drug definitely helps with the pain from sciatic nerve damage. I'm 250 pounds and know how to drink, I usually just drink beers and shots. Since being on this drug I have found that it does not mix well with alcohol for me. I find that I can drink and feel great for about 5 or 6 hours and then it's like a light switch goes off and my stomach turns and I better be close to a toilet. After the diarrhea my stomach feels like crap for 2 or 3 days. I'm to the point where it just isn't worth drinking.... When I started this drug I was definitely clumsy and I would have blurry vision in my peripheral, but that seems to have gone away. The pain relief is way more important to me than getting drunk, so now I take my meds and consume cannabis. :)

A man fighting this battle for 10 years Says:

I am finding the right blend of 300mg of gabapentin and cognac and methocarbamol to stimulate neuropathic pain reduction in my feet fingers and lumbar nerves while initiating sleep with little hang over results. Tomorrow marks the fourth best of dosage adjustments and I think it will be correct. GOAL: REDUCE NEUROPATHIC Pain in feet fingers and multiple lumbar nerve pain are without heavy side effects of dizziness and drowsiness after sleep.keys thus far: take methocarbamol at least 4 hours prior to addition of gabapentin and Ambien. No more than ,2 2oz glasses of Cognac 4 hours prior to ingestion of gabapentin and Ambien. This designed to increase long term sleep, reduce neuropathic pain and minimize side effects. Expect ,10 hours of sleep. Hydrate well throughout dosing sequences to avoid dizziness next day. Do not eat during dosing. As soon as drowsiness begins stop dosing and let sleep take over. Will report results on Friday. Preliminary has been positive. These medicines work well when properly leveraged.

I'm on 100mg and can increase at my own speed. I have a glass or two of red wine a few times a week. No problems.

Don't drink on gabapentin. It turned me into a raging lunatic. I trashed my apt and beat my boyfriend up after drinking too much wine. I'm usually a pretty chill drunk and I just go to sleep when I've had to much. But with the gabapentin in my system, I was violent and mean. I'm lucky I didn't get arrested, but I blacked out and woke up with bruises almost as if I fell down a flight of stairs. Save yourself the humiliation. Drink some lemon water and call it a night. Alcohol and anxiety/mood disorders don't mix. Self control and awareness are far more valuable to me than having a drink. After self medicating with alcohol for many years, I'm ready to stick to my treatment and let the medication do its job, without interference. And waking up after drinking, feeling down, depressed, embarrassed, low, unstable etc. Isn't worth it. And it isn't conducive to healing a mental illness.
