Maybe, maybe not: Stool changes can be due to the foods (or drinks) eaten, to medication effects, to stomach flu or other infections, to gall bladder problems, etc... One can try stopping the alcohol, and eating a bland, balanced diet (but not over eat) to see if the symptoms go away in a couple of days. If not quickly back to normal, a primary care doctor can evaluate to see what the problem might be.

A 40-year-old member asked:

I had my spleen removed after a sports injury, can I still consume alcohol?

Yes: Unless your doctor tells you otherwise, there are no restrictions from drinking alcohol or special dietary requirements following surgical removal of a spleen (splenectomy). People who have had their spleen removed are at increased risk of bacterial infection. The risk of infection is much higher among children than adults. The risk also appears to decline with time, but for a few years at the least, and until late adolescence for children, taking precautions against bacterial infections would be wise. This includes getting pneumonia vaccines and flu shots. People without spleens should try to keep their immune systems as healthy and strong as possible. Exercising, eating a healthy diet, reducing stress and getting plenty of rest will all help the immune system. With this in mind, limiting alcohol consumption as part of an overall healthy lifestyle strategy is a good idea, but typically, no added restrictions are issued after a splenectomy.

Can you get seizures and throw up if you take sleeping pills and drink alcohol at the same time?

That...and worse!!!: You should never drink alcohol and take any form of sleeping "pill" as the combination is potentially lethal! please stop this practice immediately; if you continue to have 'vomiting' seek your doctor out as this could be from the excessive alcohol use; of a gastroenterologic complication from it.

Yes: Alcohol is a toxin and therefore a poison to everyone. Some people are more sensitive than others. You are obviously having having a reaction to the alcohol and i would definitely recommend you leave it off.
