Liorisal + Motival: Motival is a combination of a major tranquilizer and a tricyclic antidepressant. This combination alone can cause drowsiness. The muscle relaxant Liorisal will almost always cause drowsiness. I think you know where I'm heading here. If the same doctor did not prescribe both drugs, be sure each doctor is aware.and approves. Don't drive until you see how you are affected by the combo. NO ALCOHOL
