Is there a danger in taking Limbitrol (chlordiazepoxide and amitriptyline) for 10+ years and drinking a couple beers each night?

Do not drink alcohol. Directions clearly state that it is risky to drink alcohol w/ this medication. If over 10 yrs no problems have arisen, it may be hard to convince anyone, but the effects of the drink will be increased. I'm always wary of long-term med use, but again - if it's been satisfactory, it may be hard to argue w/ 'success'. If they're willing, it may be possible to re-evaluate need. Best!
The FDA says don't. This medication can potentate alcohol. The package insert approved by the FDA indicates you should not mix alcohol with this medication. Consult your doctor.
