Doctor insights on:
I take trazadone for sleep. I have a special occasion coming up, and I would like to enjoy some champagne. How can I do both?
Not recommended: It is not recommended. Alcohol may interact with the trazadone causing slowed respirations, dizziness, falls, and slow heart rate. You should not take trazadone unless you really need it that day. Depending on how much alcohol you drink, that may be enough to get you to sleep. ...Read more
NOT: They will not improve your judgment though they may distract for a while. Overall this kind of self medication backfires. Having a depression is a pretty human response to things, and it's no shame to get some help working it out. Let your doctor decide if it's medical or psychological. ...Read more
I believe that by the time you drank your glass of champagne, the birth control pill was well on it's way to completing it's mission.
I would be much more concerned if you were taking antibiotics such as tetracycle and that class of drugs. These have been know to interfere with the action of the birth control pill. ...Read more
I've been drinking champagne (i had 1 whole bottle) but have a really bad cold and want to take nyquil before I sleep in a hour or two. Will I be ok?
No Nyquil 2nite:
You really don't need more alcohol tonight and Nyquil has that and other things that don't do well when soused.
After already drinking that much you should sleep OK even with a bad cold.
Drink a lot of water now. It may be good for the cold and may help with the dehydrating effects of the booze. Don't expect to feel too hot in the AM. ...Read more

Yes: Yes this should be safe. You will have had enough time off the medicine and were not taking it long term. Always have food with a glass of alcohol and plenty of non alcoholic liquids. Keeping it to one glass will be appreciated by the wedding party. If much more, be sure you are sleeping over or have a sober ride. ...Read more

Hi there, I had two glasses of champagne around 8PM. Is it safe to take Advil or Tylenol (acetaminophen) 8 hours later for a headache? I'm a fairly casual drinker.
Advil or Tylenol (acetaminophen) are accepted drugs for treatment of mild headache. It is possible the headache may be related to the champagne 8 hrs. Ago, but may have another cause. If headaches are frequent, see your provider for possible further study.
Some folks get "hangover" symptoms from more alcohol use which may be due to dehydration, so we advise water, or not drinking so much. ...Read more

Friend carrying 9 ft inflatable pool float. Walked behind up stairs and was hit right on head. Didn't hurt but later felt nauseous and headache. Had also drank champagne in sun not much water to drink. What are chances I got a concussion?
My daughter will be 1.5 months old the 14th is it safe for me to have 1 glass of champagne? I'm breast feeding.
No clear answer.: Depends on the volume of champange in the glass and whether or not your daughter has any diagnosed or undiagnosed issues. What would be a good alternative is to pump some extra before going out and saving and then for several hours after your drink pump and dump to eliminate the chance of alcohol getting into breastmilk ...Read more
Friend carried 9 foot inflatable pool float in front of me up stairs. Got hit right on top of head from tail end of float. Didn't hurt. Later developed nausea/headache. Was drinking champagne in sun outside w/o much water. Chance of concussion?
Low: The inflatable pool float could NOT have been so heavy as to cause any visible bleeding, loss of consciousness, or serious injury, could it? I HIGHLY doubt you had a concussion unless you fell down the stairs & injured yourself some other way. More likely, that champagne & heat dehydrated you. Drink plenty of water & fluids, not alcohol. See your doctor nonemergently or use HealthTap Prime. GL. ...Read more
Depends: So the controversy with alcohol is heart vs breast cancer. So for women no more than 1 glass (5oz) per day but if you have a strong risk for breast cancer than no more than three glasses per week since more than that has been associated with breast cancer. I usually tell patients to keep it to about 3 at the most 4 and that usually keeps everyone pretty happy. ...Read more
Wine.: Wine in amounts up to one glass daily, especially red wine, has been shown to have heart benefits. The resveritrol found in red wine is particularly beneficial. However, more than 2.5 glasses/day for a man or 1.5 glasses/day for a woman can lead to cirrhosis. So enjoy, but be careful. ...Read more
Small quantities: If you're going to drink wine, probably red is the healthiest because it has more antioxidants and resveratrol in it. A glass or 2 with dinner would be fine, but this isn't a recommendation to get drunk on it. :-) and remember, it has more calories in it than white wine also. Http://www. Mayoclinic.
