Can I take paracetomol while drinking alcohol?

Can I take paracetomol while drinking alcohol?

NO!!!!!!!!!!: The combination of Acetaminophen and alcohol can be extraordinarily dangerous, because alcohol converts the medication into more of the toxic substance which can damage the liver. While normal doses together with "social" drinking will not likely cause harm, even regular doses like 2 500 mg tabs 4 x daily can cause problems with excessive drinking. If you have problems not drinking, get help! ...Read more

Is there a pill I can take to keep me from drinking alcohol?

Is there a pill I can take to keep me from drinking alcohol?

No: There is a pill you could take to discourage drinking alcohol. Antabuse (disulfiram) causes people to become sick when they drink alcohol and over time people often avoid alcohol to avoid getting sick (or they just stop taking the pill). Revia (naltrexone) may help reduce the tendency to drink excessively by blocking the opiate response that for some people is coupled with their alcohol intake. ...Read more

Should I take N-acetyl cysteine before or after drinking alcohol and much should I take? Same question for Milk Thistle.

Do not take any: Alcohol is a poison that never did anybody any good, ever and you should not take it. What do you want to take milk thistle for? None of these things, including N-acetyl cysteine is going to do you any good and there only potential for harm.

How soon after drinking alcohol can I take antabuse (disulfiram)? I am concerned about eating in restaurants and getting alcohol in food. What about hair dye?

How soon after drinking alcohol can I take antabuse (disulfiram)? I am concerned about eating in restaurants and getting alcohol in food. What about hair dye?

At least 24 hours: Wait at least 24 hours after drinking, to take any antabuse (disulfiram). If alcohol is used in cooking, it is generally burned off in the process -- no longer available as free alcohol to cause a reaction. Not so with liquor-laden desserts like creme de menthe over ice cream, etc. Ask for ingredients when ordering. Do not drink hair dye under any circumstances! Used on your head, shouldn't be a problem. ...Read more

Can I take a propanolol after drinking alcohol to stop pal palpertations?

Can I take a propanolol after drinking alcohol to stop pal palpertations?

Wouldn't recommend: Alcohol can actually make anxiety worse by causing a rebound effect, and if you are having palpitations with alcohol it may be causing an arrhythmia. The answer to having a side effect from something YOU DO NOT NEED is not to take another substance, but to stop that which you do not need. Talk to your prescribing physician about your experience with alcohol-until then, I advise stopping alcohol. ...Read more

Can I take my metformin if I'm drinking alcohol for my birthday party?

Can I take my metformin if I'm drinking alcohol for my birthday party?

How much alcohol??: Alcohol inhibits gluconeogenesis, which is how we make glucose from scratch when we run out of stored glucose and glycogen, and can result in hypoglycemia. It is also a calorie source with almost as many calories as fat (8/gram for alcohol, 9/gram for fat), so it can (when taken in excess) increase blood sugar. However, metformin rarely is associated with low sugar. 1 or 2 are ok, not more. ...Read more

Can I take my Coumadin (warfarin) at the same time as drinking alcohol?

Can I take my Coumadin (warfarin) at the same time as drinking alcohol?

Sure BUT!!!!: I would advise anyone on Coumadin (warfarin) not to drink and if so, to drink no more that 1-2 ounces of alcohol in a 24 hour period. The risk of falls and severe injury, bleeding and even death is too great. The physical and immediate act fo taking the dose with alcohol is probably not a major issue, but why would you do it? There are not many medications that I take more serious than using coumadin (warfarin). ...Read more

I have anxiety day after drinking alcohol. Can I take my ativan (lorazepam). 5 mg?

Absolutely not: Why drink alcohol if it makes you anxious? That is my first question for you. Your history of pancreatitis suggests that it is not good for. Alcohol and benzos (which includes Ativan) can be a lethal combination. You can do one or the other at any given window of time. Also, talk with your doc about anxiety management. Meditation and relaxation training can help.

I usually take Atenolol at night for HBP, at what time should I take it the days that I'll be drinking alcohol?

I usually take Atenolol at night for HBP, at what time should I take it the days that I'll be drinking alcohol?

Drink Sparingly: Atenolol is almost completely removed by the kidney, Alcohol is detoxified by the liver (good). One problem is atenolol is really not a 24 hour medication (18-20hours), thus because I presume you are drinking when your atenolol is at a low level, drinking a great deal may increase the chance of abnormal heart beats. It is best not to drink too much. I put patients on 1/2 their atenolol twice a day ...Read more

I recently quit marijuana and drinking alcohol. Was wondering approximately how long it would take for my system to be clean of all toxins. Fast metab?

Polysubstance abuse: Depending on how frequently you used marijuana, it can stay in your system for months.

Your recovery requires more than simply stopping these substances, although that's a great start! Please also consider aa, or an outpatient substance abuse recovery program. ...Read more

Can I safely take cetirizine or any antihistamine AFTER drinking alcohol? For exemple in case of allergic reaction right after/during a party?

Usually: But the older antihistamines (Benadryl (diphenhydramine) (diphenhydramine) etc) tends to cause additive drowsiness effect to alochol. A rule of thumb is that a Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 25 mg= 1 shot of alcohol in sedation. The newer ones don't have this issue. ...Read more
