When is it safe to drink alcohol after a colonoscopy?

Wait a day

Colonoscopy
Most people have some level of sedation with their colonoscopy and it would not be ideal to mix alcohol with these medications. The bowel prep also can make people dehydrated. If you can, wait 24 hours before consuming alcohol.

Colonoscopy showed nothing. I get lower R ab pain simultaneous /w carpal tunnel, sciatica, skin and mostly digestive issues, but don't know how they're related. Alcohol / certain foods make it worse?

Yes bread and beer

Pain
The combination of abdominal pain (cramps), neurological syptoms, skin rash, and "digestive" problems (?gas, bloat, diarrhea, mucous in stool) suggests an food allergy, such as gluten, the protein from wheat that permeates prepared foods. The spectrum of gluten allergy is broad, Recent Oslo Criteria for diagnosis were published. A diary of ALL symptoms/foods/ times provides corret diagnosis.

I tried a test run drinking a 10oz bottle of Magnesium Citrate. Will be having colonoscopy 9/13, now very nauseous.How can I prevent nausea next time?

Mag Citrate

Malaise
Several options: chill and drink slowly. Have hot coffee/tea before to get intestines simulated in the correct direction. Use Miralax the morning of and/or day before, again to get the tract flowing easily.

Been having hard stools with some ab pain. Negative colonoscopy and endoscopy. Today had red stool? Been drinking red kool aid. is this the cause?

Maybe

Feces
It is possible but if the colonoscopy was recent it could be more serious. And blood in the toilet is very distinctive. Could be a hemorrhoid, etc...Don't write it off to just being the red drink.
