This was just a passing thought today when I had a couple of beers. We all know that mood stabilisers and anti-psychotics have alcohol listed as avoid when taking said medication.

After my first beer I got the same “spaced” feeling that you get when you take a strong analgesic such as tramadol or oxycodone. The following two beers just increased this sensation. I am not going to lie, it felt good. I was calm, relaxed and more importantly not manic or depressed.

My parting thought is, does anyone else get this feeling when drinking alcohol on this type of medication.

I could envision that some people prone to addiction have the potential to become alcoholics from this spaced feeling.

What are your thoughts?
