Alcohol consumption: is not a good option to consider while on opiates or virtually ANY prescription medication as a rule....but especially opiates. The interaction between those elements can result in increased respiratory depression, reduction in alertness, dangerous situation if driving a car or using dangerous machinery, increased loss of balance.

Abstain while in tx: It has been known that there is a warning about dangerous effects mixing tapentadol with alcoholic beverages. I would suggest not to drink alcohol until you complete your treatment.

Bad idea: You should not drink and take pain medication. The combination can depress breathing and mental function.
