Just curious as to why my DP/DR goes through the roof the next day, if i drink the night before (ok, if i get drunk). Is this due to the GABA?
Granted it's not good to drink w/ any psychological conditions, and the relief from DR w/ alcohol is only temporary.
I actually developed my DR when i was drinking excessively (i think they call it alcoholism). Had a 8-10 panic attack, and was never the same the next day.
Anyway, just curious about alcohol and DP/DR. I assume anything that messes w/ chemicals in ur brain can make it worse (even the prescription ones :)

It might also be the hangover? When i'm depressed, dp seems to get worse. When i used to do coke i'd be partying, the next day dp would get worse and i couldn't even look fondly at the party because of my detachment from memories.

To fight the hangover, unless you already do this, try drinking a bottled water before you goto bed. Most symptoms from hangover are caused by dehydration from all the water your body uses to eliminate the alcohol.

I beleive that many substances can triggers DP/DR.

Alcool for sure, cigarettes, sugar, coffee, all the bad stuff ;)
I get this alot, feed me 2 cokes with 3 cigarettes and I start sweating and get anxious for sure.
In fact, I beleive it affects everyone, even the *normal* people.
The days I smoke more than the others I'm more subject to DPDR.

Quick tip on hangover cures.

Before you hit the sauce, place a pint glass of water beside your bed. Mix in some anti-nausea powder (Pepto-Bismo for example), drop in a multi-vitmain and headache tablet or two, stir them around a bit and let them all dissolve and mix together. Now, before you hit the bottle, set your alarm for, say, 4am (or 3 hours before you're due to get up) which is when drink the whole lot. It will taste like shit, but boy, does it work. For those prone to post-hangover panic, chuck a benzo in there as well.

Also, no tea or coffee (except herbal teas) the morning after. An apple, believe it or not, is a good pick-me-up.

:D Damn you JC, I put it in there as a placebo !!!! Fooled again.

They are usually a waste of time and money for people who don't need them, but people who've just polluted themselves with booze, ****, and most probably a kebab and a traffic cone, I'm sure it won't hurt.

Good point to drink water before you hit the sack. You're hangover will be so much less. But please, do not take Tylenol or any over the counter pain med containing acetomeniphen as a cure for a hangover. Acetminophen and alcohol can cause irreperable liver damage, even after a weekend of binge drinking.
