Allowed Drink Alcohol Orlistat
Yes, but...: Most studies have shown that orlistat does not interfere with alcohol metabolism (the body's ability to break down alcohol). However, alcohol is high in empty calories and orlistat is a drug for weight loss. So, although drinking alcohol while taking this drug is not currently contraindicated, it is not wise as you are consuming added calories while simultaneously trying to reduce calories. ...Read more

Depends: Depends on how much you are talking about when you say "drink." if you are on pencillin, it is to treat an infection. Large quantities of alcohol (more than 2-3 drinks on an occasion) interfere with the body's ability to fight infections - white blood cells do not work as well to gobble up germs and make antibodies in the presence of alcohol.

It depends : This depends on how much alcohol, the type & your genetics. Evidence suggests that 1-2 drinks a nite may protect against heart disease, but it increases cancer risk. Red wine is the healthiest form. I think it would be wise to average 1 per nite & take a couple nites a week off.

TryHeavn'sGrapeJuice: Well, it won't make you feel any stronger in the long run.Some say alcohol stores iron in the body but I don't think that is significant unless you are a lush (like several drinks a day for several years,like,you know,a flaming drunk)The bright side is that wine is made of grapes which contain a fair amount of iron(100gm=2%RDA) and wine has .6mg/5oz=roughly 10%RDA. But there are better sources. ...Read more
Sure, if you want to: pee out the benefits of the vitamins. You list tuberculosis in your list of conditions, and if you are being treated for active Tb, or have a history of it, alcohol is NOT your friend. It reduces our ability to fight infections. It also robs of us vitamins, especially B vitamins. If you are talking social drinking (1-2 standard drinks/day) it should not be a problem. If more, it might be. ...Read more
Please don't: Of course you're in charge of what you take and don't take, but alcohol and Lorazepam are both CNS depressants. When taken together they have additive effects, resulting in increased sedation. This is a potentially dangerous combination -- in fact well-known people have died using such combinations. ...Read more
Good for you!: Different people respond differently to alcohol. It simply makes me sick. Almost everybody has a few bad experiences with alcohol growing up. Folks who don't learn from these to drink in moderation are generally the ones who go on to have problems.
