Husband (32) having very frequent pvc/pacs. 2 ekgs done, cardio will run more tests but says likely stress. Ok to drink 2-3 beers? His bday 2moro :(
Every time i eat dairy/drink milk, i get really bad pac's (premature atrial contractions). I can feel it in my chest & pulse. Why does this happen?
Within limits, yes: Azithromycin can cause gastrointestinal irritation with abdominal pain, nausea, or cramping, and alcohol could make it worse. For most people, a couple of drinks, wine or beer aren't likely to be a problem, but go easy. Of course heavy alcohol use impairs the body's ability to fight any infection, so no heavy drinking. ...Read more

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 zithromax is 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
No!: First, Azithromycin (zithromax) is not mean to be mixed with anything except the liquid provided by the pharmacy (when it comes to you as a suspension). Mixing it with any other liquids than water could inactivate the drug, and then you're not getting the antibiotic effect you just pain a bunch of money for! and you won't get better! secondly, Azithromycin is not heat stable above 86 degrees. ...Read more
Shouldn't drink ETOH: Alcohol will inactivate most antibiotics and render them useless in fighting whatever the infection is that you are being treated for....best advice is to wait until you've completed the course of treatment and gotten the all clear from your doctor that the infection is gone.
