Not a good idea: Alcohol will worsen the sedative side effects of Claritin (loratadine) often to an unpredictable degree. Would not advise taking both at the same time. If you use Claritin (loratadine) often and know your susceptibility to side effects, then alcohol can be used with caution when taking it. Never drive in this scenario. And do not drink if you are underage, this is illegal. ...Read more
If I had 10 mg Claritin (loratadine) about an hour or two ago. Would it be safe to drink alcohol now?
I drink alcohol while on Claritin (loratadine) which I take regularly for chronic hives. Is that okay/safe?
Most likely, but....: Mixing Claritin (loratadine) with alcohol may or may not cause problems. Generally claritin (loratadine) does not cause drowsiness, but people who develop drowsiness due to this drug are at an increased risk of experiencing negative effects due to such drug interaction; therefore they are advised to avoid drinking alcohol. ...Read more
I take Claritin (loratadine) daily for chronic hives. Can I drink alcohol? Like a glass or two of wine?
Can I mix claritin, (loratadine) Pepcid complete and drink alcohol? I have the Asian flush as they call it and get rapid heart beat, headache, red flush+warmth.
You can, but…: The Asian flush, as you term it, is caused by an enzyme which makes you metabolize alcohol into acetaldehyde. Since this is a genetic issue, Pepcid and Claritin (loratadine) will not help, although you can take them with alcohol in reasonable doses. Also, there is an increased risk of esophageal cancer with alcohol intake in patients with the Asian flush, so you should avoid regular drinking. Good luck. ...Read more

Hi I was wondering my GGT LEVEL is 64U/L which is very high but I don't drink alcohol or take drugs what causes the elevation? Hep test negative
May just be you: That's high for the lab, I trust? About one person in 1000 always runs a way-high GGT. It's genetic. These folks get accused of being drunks. You're not. Sorry there was a misunderstanding. If everything else is okay, forget it. ...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. If it is a beer or 2, or a glass of win, no problem. ...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
Question: If a person has sarcoid and if they have gastrointestinal involvement (clinically evident GI involvement occurs in less than 1% of sarcoidosis), then liver involvement is probable.

Don't know, but...: Since there are no double-blind, randomized control trials to answer this question, can't tell you for sure. However, the question that I have is - since antibiotics are usually given only for a few days, if you don't feel like you can safely refrain from drinking alcohol for even that period, might you be struggling with an alcohol problem. Please discuss this with your doctor asap. ...Read more
