Is it safe to take diflucan (fluconazole) and drink alcohol free beer?

Is it safe to take diflucan (fluconazole) and drink alcohol free beer?

Avoid carbs: Assuming you are taking Diflucan (fluconazole) for a yeast infection, it would be best to avoid foods and drinks that turn to sugar in your body, including alcohol free beer. There seems to be a misconception that beer without alcohol is low carb but in fact one bottle can contain 13-15grams of carbs. Yeast live on sugars/carbs so a low carb diet that is preferable gluten -free as well, is best. ...Read more

If you want to lose weight is it better to stop alcohol if you drink a lot of beer?

It would help a lot: Alcohol has a lot of calories. So cutting out alcohol would do you no harm and would be a good way to cut down on calories. One 12-ounce can of beer has about 150 calories. Multiply that by the number of cans you drink and you'll see how many calories you eliminate. If you're having a hard time quitting see your doctor or an alcohol counselor. ...Read more

Is it possible to feel alcohol withdrawals everyday if I typically only drink 4-6 beers a night during the week and 10+ fri-sun?

Is it possible to feel alcohol withdrawals everyday if I typically only drink 4-6 beers a night during the week and 10+ fri-sun?

Yes you can feel it: Often an alcoholic will try to drink several times a day because withdrawal symptoms can develop as early as 6-8 hours after the last drink. A sign of alcoholism is called "eye-opener" drink--meaning upon waking the person needs a drink right away to actually get going because the symptoms of withdrawal starts to kick in. I suggest cutting down on your drinking and consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

When I drink a beverage with alcohol I sometimes find it hard to breath. This is with just 1-2 beers or mix drinks. What could cause this?

Don't know: Feeling short-of-breath (dyspnea) can result from a number of thinks involving the heart and lungs, but also can relate to anxiety. Some people are very sensitive to alcohol effects and have an exaggerated and sometimes paradoxical response where small amounts of alcohol can trigger what feels like a panic attack. Cannot say from your description - you need to see your doctor for evaluation. ...Read more

35 yr old male. I really only drink water (probably 1 gsllon or more a day) and lite beer (4-5 a day) no cafeene! Is this little alcohol bad for health?

Alcohol: Consistently drinking 4-5 beers a day is quite a lot. It indicates you're using this habitually, and could be at least psychologically dependent on the alcohol. With this amount, you could also have some physical withdrawal effects if stopping as well. You might want to see your physician for a general health evaluation, and let him/her know you're concerned about your beer intake (if you are). ...Read more

You'll be fine: That's a lot of beer, though. You could probably get happy with a lot less, or maybe even just the good company. If you look at studies of how guys do with alcohol, if you have five or more drinks at one setting more than twice a month, you're headed for unhappiness. I'm glad you're still trim, and I'm thinking maybe you'd actually have more fun in the gym than the tavern. Best wishes. ...Read more

It says on the Zzzquil label that there is 10% alcohol in 354mL. Is taking a dose of 30mL of zzzquil equivalent to taking a shot or drinking a beer?

It says on the Zzzquil label that there is 10% alcohol in 354mL. Is taking a dose of 30mL of zzzquil equivalent to taking a shot or drinking a beer?

No: If Zzzzquil is 10% alcohol then 30 ml has 3 cc of alcohol.
An average beer is 12 ounces or 360 ml which is 4-6% alcohol which thus has about 20 cc of alcohol and a shot has about 20 cc of alcohol as well. Thus Zzzquil has the amount of alcohol as about 1/7 of a beer or shot but does have diphenhydramine, an antihistamine that makes you drowsy, so it is not wise to take more than about 30 ml. ...Read more
