    You don't say what you have to take it for but I wouldn't have thought missing a dose would do any harm.

      I take amitriptyline for headaches/mild migraine.

      I often drive home after taking the tablet as i sometimes finish work at 10pm & return to work the next morning at 8.

    I suppose as long as you don't drink any alcohol it wouldn't do any harm taking your dose just before you leave. Only you know how quickly you feel drowsy.

    PLEASE do not miss a dose. Take it later if you have to, shortly before you leave the party but DONT drink while you are taking it. Its not good to miss a dose, especially on purpose as you put yourself at risk of side effects. Its always better to take it than not.  You dont say how much you are taking, but if you feel drowsy when you have had it, then maybe its better to take it as you actually leave the party so that by the time you are home, it will have started to take effect. If you feel that  you are affected because you have had it, then get a taxi...its much safer all round.
