Is it okay to drink beer gives me acid refluxsolutions?

Is it okay to drink beer gives me acid refluxsolutions?

No its not okay: Healthy people, when something really bothers them, stop doing what bothers them. EXCEPT, when what they are getting out of that activity is REALLY worth it to them. So, for you, drinking (and I am guessing getting drunk) is more important than pain from eroding your esophagus and possibly ultimately causing damage/bleeding. This sounds to me like a problem where sobriety is the solution. Try it ...Read more

Can i drink beer if I am taking ic-smz-tmp 400-80mg?

Can i drink beer if I am taking ic-smz-tmp 400-80mg?

No: I am always worried when people who are sick ask if they can drink while they're sick - this to me is a potential indicator of a drinking problem. You are on Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for some kind of infection (respiratory or urinary usually), and alcohol is not good for people with infections - it suppresses our immune system, makes it harder for white cells to find and eat bacteria. Talk to your doctor/counselor. ...Read more

Can you drink beer while taking femara (letrozole)?

Can you drink beer while taking femara (letrozole)?

Why are you on it?: If you are on the medication to assist in getting pregnant, then alcohol is not your friend. If you are talking about one or two beers on an occasion, it shouldn't make any difference. If you are talking a six-pack a day (or any regular use), alcohol impairs ovulation as well as the maturation of follicles. If it is being used in the setting of breast cancer prevention, alcohol is also not good. ...Read more

When can I drink beer again after a lacerated liver?

Healing needed: Your liver (and probably you) have been through a major trauma. Your liver specifically needs to heal, and will show enzyme abnormalities for some time. Alcohol is a toxin to your liver. Your own doctors -- who know your case, how your liver got injured, and the unique factors that can slow or speed your personal healing -- are the best ones to answer any questions about ingesting alcohol. ...Read more

Is it ok to drink beer while on warfarin? If so, hoe much is too much? And how is it ok to drink?

Not a good idea: Warfarin is very sensitive to changes in the body, and to changes in one's diet or medications. If a person absolutely must drink alcoholic beverages, she has to work out a plan with her primary doctor to follow the changes in blood test results and adjustments in medication dose. That's probably the only way to figure out how much of an effect a given amount of alcohol has on one specific person. ...Read more

Have you explored with your doctor the possibility of undernutrition, hyperthyroidism, malabsorption and maldigestion, infection, altered GI tract function, eating disorders, inflammatory conditions, and malignancy?
