I've recently been prescribed Xyrem (finally!) and I'm really looking forward to start taking it. However, these last six months I've started drinking quite a lot. Not too much of course but I've been going out every or almost every weekend and, not to sound stupid or anything, but it has really helped me become more social and getting my social-life in order. The problem now is, as most of you probably know, that Xyrem is not to be combined with alcohol. Which really sucks.
Anyways, I've been thinking about it and I'm kinda wondering if it still would be okey for me to go out once in a while to drink? I do realize that I cant go out as often as I used to before but would it really be impossible for me to go out and drink like every second month or so?
And while were at it, if I would go out and drink, which doses should I skip? Obviously I should skip the doses I was planning to have that evening/night I'm going out, but do I need to skip the doses of the previous night as well? For example, if I start drinking at 8 in the evening then it have been 16 hours from my latest dose (4, in the middle of the night) and an entire 16 hours seems pretty much to me.
Answers to this would really be appreciated. I'd also like to hear of your experiences with combining Xyrem and alcohol if you have any.
