Monday In a previous issue, I wrote about a gentleman suffering from bipolar disease and comorbid alcoholism who had decided to set himself straight. Sadly, today I received word from a colleague that he was hospitalized over the weekend. Apparently, he developed abdominal pain and astronomical serum liver enzymes after drinking alcohol while taking valproate. To top it off, his wife was admitted to the OB service of the same hospital for preterm labor. What a rotten way to start the week.​
