Hi I started taking restoril a few months back for insomnia after I was having adverse reactions (sleep walking, cooking, and redosing with out knowing it) and so restoril is amazing for putting me to sleep and keeping me asleep. But my problem is I'm turning 21 tomorrow and my brothers and my fiancé are throwing a party for me which I know we are going to be having a few alcoholic beverages and what not, so my question is if I took my normal 30mg dose of restoril tonight, could I have a few drinks tomorrow? Any feedback would be much appreciated, thank you

Hello, Kyle! How are you? Happy 21st!!

And no, you really shouldn't mix alcohol with any prescription medication. It can worsen the side effects, which could cause dangerous problems, since this is a benzodiazepine. If you really want to drink, it would be best to skip the before and after doses to be safe.

You can double check with your doctor, but there's a really good chance that they are going to tell you the same thing.

Are there any other questions or concerns?

Thank you for the info! And yes you were right, my GP said that if I were to drink then I should space the to of them out 24hrs before and after, and my party was lots of fun and safe, I really appreciate the peace of mind you gave me thank you! Happy Holidays

Only 21 and needing restoril, sigh. I would not recommend taking restoril with a current BAC; i.e., don't get s***faced and take the restoril. Wait until your sober before taking restoril. The worst case scenario is death; usually vomiting into your lungs and suffocating.
