Lots Of Microsleeping With Alcohol?

So I went to a formal the other night with my friends who thankfully knows i have narco. But I drank a little more than normal(probably 4 drinks) and I started to microsleep while dancing. It was so weird, my friend kept asking if I was okay and I was just so confused because I didn't remember the past few seconds or minutes. I continued to fall into microsleeps, while sitting, walking, talking. Usually if I only have 1 or 2 drinks I'm okay. And I remember like 2 years ago pre narcolepsy I used to be able to drink a lot more and even if I was drunk I never experienced anything like this before. I think there was some mild cataplexy thrown in with the sleep attacks as well. I guess I've learned not to drink that much ever again. Thank god I was with someone I trusted. But has this happened to anyone else before? microsleeping with drinking?
Alcohol always multiplies my derp factor. If I'm having one of my rare good days, I can down shot after shot and not feel a thing. I once did 2 Irish Carbombs back to back. But when I'm really sick, one Smirnoff Ice or Mike's Hard is enough to make me stumbling, cross-eyed drunk.

What's an Irish Carbomb, might I ask?
"An Irish Car Bomb is an American beer cocktail that is drunk as a bomb shot, similar to a boilermaker. It is made with Irish stout, Irish cream, and Irish whiskey.... To make the drink, whiskey is floated on top of Irish Cream in a shot glass, and the shot glass is then dropped into the stout. Once mixed, it must be drunk quickly because it will curdle." (from Wikipedia)
Here's what it looks like:
I think they taste sort-of like a chocolate milkshake. I only drink maybe 3 times a year, but when I do, I get these.

Ooo! That does look really good. I'm due for my next alcoholic drink in about 3-4 months myself, so I'll keep it in mind.

I'm prescribed to take 75 mg of Nuvigil daily. If I go out and drink without taking my Nuvigil that day, I'll probably end up falling asleep on the toilet for a bit or blacking out at some point. I'm not sure if that's due to not taking Nuvigil, consuming too much alcohol, or both.
If I do take my pill that day and I drink, I am happy, and active, and jumping around everywhere and having fun (: without falling asleep on the toilet or being super drowsy. I think I'm also more alert and able to regulate my consumption better. I just feel more in control of what I'm doing if I drink on a day where I take Nuvigil in the morning, as opposed to a day where I dont!
