Surgery on knee, had two pills of tramadol/acet 325 mg. Is it ok to drink alcohol after having this medicine?

i had surgery today on my knee it was a scope so a minor surgery but i was given two pills of tramadol/acet 325 mg at around 1pm so 6 hours ago and i was wondering if it would be ok for me to drink alcohol tonight around 10pm. i am 16 years old and weigh 160 lbs and i am 5 foot 10. I am going to a party with alcohol so i would much prefer to know how to handle this situation rather than going into this party without any knowledge of the possible concequences. thanks

Hello and thanks for writing in at HCM
No you cannot mix tramadol with alcohol. Both tramadol and alcohol are Central Nervous System depressant and also down the brain activity which ultimately cause confusion, loss of consciousnesses and even brain damage. Both the drugs taken together also causes depression.
So I strongly recommend you to not to take alcohol in the party tonight.
Hope you got your answer.
Best Wishes
