I think I asked this on another morel thread last year but does anyone get sick if they eat morels while drinking alcohol?

It depends how much you drink! 😂

Seriously, when you start eating any mushrooms at the start of the season, take it slow, eat fewer to start. Morels, verpa, boletes, chanterelles, any of them. Drinking heavily will hasten your reaction to over-consumption.
:yeah:
I have eaten wild mushrooms my whole life.  One time I ate way too many chanterelles and drank a bit as well.  I felt terrible for two days. 
But I ate like a whole pan of mushrooms.

Same and after seeing Pman's post it was probably the amount I ate. My sickness was for about 24 hours, pretty much like a stomach flu. I'm gonna break in my system slowly this year.

Found a beautiful, fresh coral mushroom years ago.  Sautéed  2,  1/2" thick steaks in butter.  Couldn't look at a mushroom for 2 years.  You can definitely OD on fungi!!

I started selling exotic foods for a crazy man back in 2001. One of the things he was good about was having the salespeople try anything in the inventory. Up to that point, I'd had limited foraging experience - matsutake only. So, I tried some of the mushrooms...raw. Interestingly, raw chanterelles give you the usual mushroom OD symptoms x10 - cold sweats, nausea and vomiting, diarrhea. Oh, those were fun times those first days in the business!  :chuckle:

I ate too many chanterelles a few years ago during elk season.  I didn't really feel that sick other than I puked a few times in the middle of the night.  I didn't even have stomach pain.  Just that undeniable feeling that I was going to puke.  Hit me out of the blue and was gone by the morning.  I definitely go easy on the steak and mushrooms the first night in elk camp now!

Still too early for the east side I'm guessing. Couple weeks maybe?

Ridges are rolled over looking like a brain, where a true morel has edges that are pronounced like a honeycomb. Notice the cap is seperate from the stem? True morel when cut in half the "cap" isn't actually a cap, it will be fully attached so a hollow opening from stem to tip one continuous opening.

I always tell the false by looking at stem. If it’s hollow stem it’s morel if it’s filled in solid (not hollow) it’s false. Easy way for dumb guy like me
