Thanks for the response John. I couldnt believe the reaction I had to alcohol while on this med. I totally blacked out, couldnt even walk, it was horrible. I will stay away from it for a while to avoid that happening again. I've been on this for almost a month and am not sure if things are better or not. Sometimes I feel good, but sometimes I dont. I'm hoping that I see an improvement soon.
