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.See 1 more doctor answer
Alcohol is available in many beverages, from beer and wine to the more potent distilled spirits, such as gin, rye, and whiskey. There appear to be at least small health benefits of small amounts of alcohol use (fewer than five drinks per week), especially of red wine Excessive alcohol use can lead to addiction and severe social and physical complications.

Yes.: As long as you don't have other medical contraindications, and you have fully recovered from surgery, which can take several weeks depending on the technique used. Remember, never mix alcohol with narcotics or sedatives, don't drink in excess, don't drive after drinking even small amounts of alcohol.
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.
Safe to drink: Yes it is safe to drink alcohol in moderation as long as you do not have a medical contraindication like liver disease studies have shown that if you are male and drink 2 drinks a day, like 2glasses of wine, 2beers, or two shots of hard liqour, it is beneficial to your health as it raises yourhdl in women who are not pregnant or nursing 10 drinks a week is beneficial any more than that can be harmful.
Depends how much: 1 glass of wine for women, 2 glasses for men is acceptable. And may even have health benefits. 1-2 glasses of hard liquor daily is a different story. Pregnant women should not be drinking at all. As in many things in life, moderation and common sense are the key.
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.

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.See 1 more doctor answer
