How long after taking one paracetamol (panadol) can I have a glass of wine? Dad says fine — but wanted to be sure!
No alcohol with meds: Paracetamol is like acetaminophen, thus will react with liver enzymes. Alcohol may also interact with enzymes in the liver and interfere in filtration of toxins in the blood, which is the primary purpose of the liver, so it is best not to consume any alcohol with medications in general, and especially with those medications that may interfere with liver metabolism enzymes. ...Read more
Can I have a glass of wine while breastfeeding? Baby is 3 months do I need to pump and dump if so how long after should I pump?
Probably ok: Everything you eat or drink can travel into your breast milk, so the term"Everything in moderation". A glass of wine should not have any ill affects, but the urge to drink more could have an effect on your baby and cause symptoms such as sleepiness, irritablity, and low blood sugar.

depends: A glass of wine is an amount called "a standard drink". It is "standard", because most people would metabolize it within one hour. To answer the question specifically for your body, not statistically, you need to conduct an experiment.

Depends on amount: Typically, one should not mix alcohol and meds like klonopin, (clonazepam) both are central nervous system depressants and can combine to create an even greater degree of sedation and may slow your breathing. If a single glass of wine and a small dose of klonopin, (clonazepam) it is prob ok to take it within several hours of the wine. Klonopin (clonazepam) will be in your body for up to 1.5 days, but much of the effect passes in hours. ...Read more

Is it true a glass of wine a day has health benefits or is that just an old wives tale? And how long should I wait after a glass to take my zoloft (sertraline)?
Resveratrol: Some studies show benefits of one glass of wine (especially red wine) a day, for women. This does not mean you should start drinking it if you have not been.

Without exposing yourself to alcohol, you could get the same from grapes, etc, or a good resveratrol supplement. ...Read more
How long after I finish a course of cleocin (clindamycin phosphate) that I can have a glass of wine?
I am taking amoxicillin and Tylenol/codeine, how long do I have to wait before I can have a glass of wine?
Problem: It is really not about the timing, and I understand that the answer might sound extreme. First of all, you mention alprazolam, Clonazepam in your list of meds, but only ask about ativan (lorazepam). Your dr probably assumed that you would not use alcohol while on treatment with those 3 CNS depressants. We don t know when you will take or need your next ativan (lorazepam). Please ask your dr. See comment. ...Read more
12 hour fast, glucose level- 110. About 95 in prior tests. Problem? Also, does 1 glass of wine/day contribute to long term higher glucose levels?
Prediabetes: A fasting glucose of 100-125 is considered prediabetes. Another test to check your average glucose over 3 months is a hemoglobin A1C. Considering you have an impaired fasting glucose, this would be a good test to see where your average blood sugar levels are. At this stage, you have the potential to reverse your condition with diet and exercise. You're likely ok with 1 glass of wine. ...Read more
What to do if I have long term vertigo. I only smoke once a week if that when what to do if I have a little glass of wine. Could it be smoking causing it?
Smoking what??: If it is marijuana, it is possible that may be causing vertigo, and any alcohol may make it worse. Stop doing both for a few weeks and see if that helps. If it doesn't, see your health care provider, who may want to refer you to an ENT specialist, since inner ear problems are the most common reason for chronic vertigo. ...Read more

Limit it to one: Even one will work against your recovery, but it isn't terrible. Even better if you drink lots of water or cranberry juice before or after the wine.

Yes - no problem: There should not be any serious interaction with this antibiotic (a cephalosporin) and a glass of wine. I would stop at one glass though, because your body is under some kind of 'attack' (the reason for the antibiotics) -- so you don't want to overload yourself. Alcohol is actually a toxin, although we don't think of it that way. Hope you can go to bed early to help yourself recover. ...Read more

Alcohol will pass through the breast milk and it lingers in the milk after it is made. Alcohol converts to byproducts that are toxic to the developing brain. There is no level of alcohol exposure that is considered safe to a developing infant. ...Read more
Antibiotics: Antibiotics should be prescribed by your dentist and taken if you have an infection... they are not painkillers. Your toothache may be due to a vital tooth; if that is the case, they are useless. An infected tooth requires more than the antibiotic. Root canal therapy is usually indicated. One glass of wine should not be problematic. ...Read more
