How long does it take for 10mg Paracodin to leave your body and how long after taking is it safe to drink alcohol?
Paracodin: It can take up to 20 hours for Paracodin to fully leave your body. The earlier you drink alcohol before that, the riskier the prospect when it comes to coordination issues like dizziness, which will impact walking and especially driving. The two together also depresses the body’s drive to breathe, which isn’t as much of an issue while you’re awake, but is more so when you fall asleep. ...Read more

If a person does drink alcohol while taking keflex, do they have to restart the entire keflex regimen or can they just take one extra day of the antib?
Neither: Alcohol is toxic to living tissues (we humans happen to be a complex glob of living tissues), so avoid drinking too much. Also, an infected person doesn't need any additional, voluntary toxins in the body. However, alcohol does not have a direct relationship to how many Keflex capsules one needs to take. That would just depend on how well the infection is clearing up, and on the doctor's orders. ...Read more

Cialis & alcohol: The ban on alcohol with use of cialis-like drugs is not absolute. Excessive alcohol is contraindicated for 36 hours, but excessive alcohol is always contraindicated.

Most forms of alcohol are mild depressants of sexual arousal, but you should know from past experience whether this is a problem for you. ...Read more
