Specializes in Anesthesiology

Not recommended: Drinking alcohol after general anesthesia may exarcebate some of the remaining effects of the anesthesia and some of the drugs often administered during anesthesia (opioids. other sedatives etc...) including: sedation, grogginess, nausea/vomiting and headache. If you drink alcohol on a daily basis, it is very important to let your anesthesiologist know.
