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

When I drink alcohol it takes my stress away & calms me down. Is thst a bad thing?

In addition to: What dr. Fowler said, alcohol is an addictive substance. The younger you start drinking and the smaller your stature, the more likely you are to become addicted. Then you will need more and more alcohol to get less and less of the "calm" which you are describing. Don't risk it, speak to a therapist about what is stressing you out and learn natural ways to relieve stress. ...Read more

How long does it take for 10mg Paracodin to leave your body and how long after taking is it safe to drink alcohol?

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

Can I drink alcohol while on butrans patch. I have a special occasion over the weekend. Or can I take it off a couple days and be safe?

No, you can't safely: These are serious medications and it is generally not safe to start and stop them for convenience. It is also not safe to drink while on it - If this is for 3/7 or 3/8, talk to the Dr. Don't just remove the patch. Even if it was OK this time, the future may not be. Be careful w/ yourself - that's part of what you need for recovery! ...Read more

I've been taking azithromycine each second day, one pill. Tomorrow I will take 250 mg pill at 2 pm and have a party at 7 pm - can I drink alcohol?

I've been taking azithromycine each second day, one pill. Tomorrow I will take 250 mg pill at 2 pm and have a party at 7 pm - can I drink alcohol?

To good health: If you are taking antibiotics for an infection -in your case azithromycin, you should really focus on getting well. Especially since you are still early in the treatment. This means, staying up late, drinking alcohol etc are not recommended. Is this going to harm you? Probably not if it is only one drink but you should give your body a break since alcohol is a toxin, technically speaking. ...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?

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

I take Cialis and it stays in your system for 36 hours does that mean I cannot drink alcohol for 36 hours...?

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. A single glass of wine or beer is not necessarily a problem. 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

I am planing to drink alcohol heavily after 52 hours, I am coughing since two days I did not take any medicines. What medicine can I buy? Thanks

Drinking When Sick: You do realize that we are really medical doctors here? Drinking alcohol when one is ill is the very definition of insanity. Don't you think? I know of no physician worth their salt that would not comment and remind you that drinking when one is ill makes the person sicker and recovery longer.

Please reconsider your plan and rest and take in good, nutritions fluids, such as water. ...Read more
