Cheryl, Not to be on my soapbox but please don't drink alcohol if you are on meds.  You are asking for trouble or death. I know how bad the pain gets and it is easy to reach for something when the meds aren't helping enough but  don't risk your life.  This worries me. I do know how desperate we can get when the pain and sickness is constant but we need to take care of our bodies also. Kelly
