Can I drink alcohol 4 days after taking diflucan (fluconazole)?

Can I drink alcohol 4 days after taking diflucan (fluconazole)?

I wouldn't.: Diflucan (fluconazole) is a powerful drug with potential side effects which can be worse if you drink. It is metabolized in the liver, like alcohol. Side effects include nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. These will worsen with alcohol. Since Diflucan (fluconazole) stays in the system for up to a week, the best option is to avoid alcohol for a week after taking Diflucan (fluconazole). You can celebrate with non-alcoholic options.

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

I have finished my full course of antibiotic 4 hours before so can n I drink alcohol?

I have finished my full course of antibiotic 4 hours before so can n I drink alcohol?

Depends on…: The antibiotic: some like Flagyl (metronidazole) can interact with alcohol & cause marked nausea & vomiting. Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) alone can cause nausea/vomiting even without alcohol. No drug interactions r listed for bactrim, (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) amoxicillin, & alcohol, but it's never a good idea to mix alcohol with meds. Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) & alcohol both affect the liver. Best to wait until you've finished antibiotics before drinking. Read more

Can I drink alcohol whiled taking Vitamax?

Can I drink alcohol whiled taking Vitamax?

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

Can I drink alcohol while taking nyquil?

Can I drink alcohol while taking nyquil?

Not a good idea: Nyquil itself contains about 20% alcohol, but more importantly excessive alcohol is bad for the immune system, and itself makes many cold symptoms (particularly nasal stuffiness) worse. Adding additional alcohol to nyquil increases the chance of intoxication, which aside from being illegal at your age, is dangerous, particularly behind the wheel of a car or anything similar.
