Are you allowed to drink alcohol with orlistat?

Are you allowed to drink alcohol with 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.

Can you drink alcohol withbpenicillin vk?

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. If it is a beer or 2, or a glass of win, no problem.

Is it ok to drink alcohol every night?

Is it ok to drink alcohol every night?

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. See http://www. Hsph. Harvard. Edu/nutritionsource/alcohol-full-story/ & http://www.

Can you drink alcohol if you have low iron?

Can you drink alcohol if you have low iron?

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.
