4 shots oral Alcohol - Hard

I was drinking alone on Friday night. I drank about 4 shots of whiskey, not usually too much for me, and went rummaging for pills so I could sleep. I ended up taking 200mg of trazodone, from a prescription I had 6 months ago. I felt pretty good, a bit drunk, and went to sleep about thirty minutes later.

About two hours later I woke up because I had to use the bathroom. I was so dizzy and uncoordinated that I couldnít stand up. I felt like I was on the verge of being blackout drunk. I crawled my way to the bathroom. I donít remember getting there, but I had reached the toilet and shut the door. I woke up some time later - I had passed out on the floor next to the toilet and couldnít move. I felt very drunk and nauseated. I was swaying and couldnít focus my eyes.

I didnít know how I would make it back to bed. Eventually I got myself upright and splashed water in my face. I was so groggy. I toddled back to bed and collapsed, feeling so dizzy and nauseated that I couldnít sleep.

It occurred to me that I did not eat lunch or dinner the previous day, so I crawled to the kitchen and ate a protein bar. About 3 hours had passed since I took the trazodone, and about 5 hours since I began drinking. I managed to eat a couple bites of protein bar, drink some water, and crawl back to bed.

I slept for 12 hours and had very intense dreams. Really intricate, complete storylines. When I woke up at 2pm I barely felt better. Had an awful headache. When I stood up I felt weak and dizzy still. I managed to scrounge up some food, though I wasnít very hungry, and drink lots of water. Spent all day in bed, feeling terrible. Luckily the headache was responsive to a cup of coffee and some Tylenol.

I went to sleep early on Saturday and felt mildly better today. Managed to leave the house to hit up the grocery store for sports drinks and soup. At this point, it felt like I had a terrible hangover or the flu. Iíve been taking it easy, and the headache has come back. Starting to get concerned because I still feel sick - if Iím not improving I will go to the doctor tomorrow.

Googling trazodone and alcohol says that the effects of alcohol can be intensified. I drank 4 shots of whiskey over 2 hours, and it does feel more intense than usual, except I still feel like Iím hungover 2 days later.

I have only ever drank half a bottle at a time before and the hangover was atrocious, but this is much worse.
