    Think anyone's ever been drunk while taking step 1? During 1st year I gave a presentation while I was three sheets to the wind. Drank a few too many at lunch while trying to loosen up. step 1 is another story though. i ask because I was tempted to have a beer before going in there. my nerves were so wacky before the exam. hmmm, i think i'm one of those doctor stats waiting to happen. or maybe even frontpage news "Drunken Surgeon saws off wrong arm, then lovingly reattaches it to wayward wildebeast." That'd be pretty awesome.

    ive given a couple of presentations under the influence, informal peer to peer though. i wouldnt recommend a test though, but whatever floats your boat.

    I think a beta blocker would be a better way to take off the edge.

    Buspirone or alprozalam would have been the way to go.

    Honestly, if having a beer is going to calm you the hell down before the exam, then have a beer. ONE. and i don't think you'll be one of those stats cuz you seem aware that you're a drunkard :D

    no but really, only one beer. i would do that if i could, but i would get a headache in the middle of the exam like an ass (happens everytime i drink beer)

    ...wait. have TWO beers. one to calm me down too. but only two, NO MORE.

    Buspirone would have been horrendous. Take it before your presentation and start feeling relaxed 2 weeks later. Besides, it's for GAD.

    For greater bioavailability, I would recommend IV Heineken.
