Can You Tolerate Alcohol?
Last year, my boyfriend and I went to a restaurant months after quarantining for my health. It was a spacious place that I felt comfortable at, and it had been months since I turned 21 and had been unable even to order a drink.
After one margarita, I got up to go to the restroom, feeling and walking fine, and then halfways there at the entrance of the restaurant, I blackout for a moment and fall to the floor. I haven’t and do not plan on taking even a sip of liquor anytime soon!
I was on high doses of prednisone, mycophenolate, and pyridostigmine. It was only around three months after my first MG crisis that led to a diagnosis.
I am curious, have you had complications with alcohol consumption? Do you believe this was due to your MG complications? What was your treatment plan when you couldn’t handle alcohol?
