    I personally have stopped taking both Phen and Metformin on days I am drinking. I have noticed that it makes your body react in a weird way plus there is no purpose in taking the Phen since alcohol has no nutritonal value. Also, when I don't take it on the weekend and then start Monday it seems to work better - maybe because your body isn't as used to it.

    I agree, stop the meds for any celebrating. BTW Happy early Birthday!!! I went on ********** and read up on Metformin. I pasted a paragraph from the website. Hope it helps!! What should I avoid while taking metformin?
    Avoid drinking alcohol while taking metformin. Alcohol lowers blood sugar and may increase the risk of lactic acidosis while you are taking this medicine.

    definitely skip the meds for any celebratory alcohol consumption, you might have more alcohol than you normally would and why put yourself at risk.

    I have like one alcohic drink on the weekend with dinner and I don't skip my phen for those, but I have had 2 celebrations to drink at since starting phen and I definitely am glad I skipped the pills for that.

    Enjoy your b-day!
    See ya at the beach, I'll be the fat one in the thong.

    Phen, you are supposed to use caution and it can intensify the effects of alcohol. I find it hits me quicker, so I try to watch it... I used to just skip my phen that day if I planned to drink.

    Met is a different story... you REALLY have to be careful drinking on Met. It's the main reason I stopped taking Met, it scared me to death. Taking met increases your risk of developing lactic acidosis, which is life threatening. Drinking large amounts of alcohol also increases your risk... so if you combine the two, it can be dangerous. They say that drinking in a small amount is generally okay and they warn against drinking large amounts of alcohol or binge drinking... but for me, I really couldn't determine the actual amount either of those referred to and I wasn't willing to risk my life for it. I was taking Met for PCOS and insulin resistance... I started taking cinnamon, exercising more and cut out all the bad carbs and have nearly cured my PCOS without Met. I knew it was going to be easier for me to give up Met, than give up having some drinks... If you do, please be careful.

    Hi. I really think it depends on your body chemistry. Some people can drink and some can't. I don't know anything about metformin though. Usually if I know I am going to drink I will not take my Phen. I would rather be safe than sorry. KWIM?

    Oh and Happy early Birthday!!!!! Wow, 21, go enjoy yourself!!
