Yesterday I was in the pub - I had three Pepsi's - no alcohol.

I feel when I am calm and behaving - I abstain from alcohol as it interferes with the meds.

But I do drink sometimes. Life has its ups and downs and it is hard to refrain.

Do you seldomly get alcohol? Do you have a low dosage of AP?

12.5 mg olanzapine. It is a medium/high dosage.

I have sparkling wine in the fridge.

I guess - I feel there is peer pressure to drink.

And when you drink you have obvious side-effects? (not the normal side effects of alcohol)

Actually I am fine really. But if I drink too much I do not like the feeling. It makes me feel queasy and need to rest.
