I have Ativan left over from all the anti nausea drugs I got last year. I never liked taking it at home but I did ask for it in the hospital because it helped me sleep. Sometimes I'd just like to have a couple of margaritas and get silly but I've avoided alcohol except for a few sips of champagne at my daughter's wedding What have you heard about occasional very moderate alcoholic drinking?
I drank liberally through treatment and had a complete response to six rounds of folfox. Probably not a good idea to go crazy but it wasn’t an issue for me.
