Can cirrhosis be predicted from the liters/day of whisky times the number of years drinking?

Can cirrhosis be predicted from the liters/day of whisky times the number of years drinking?

Big drinker, big risk: No formula, but a lot over a long time & you're certainly taking a big risk, esp. In women. Lose enough functioning liver cells to scarring & you get cirrhosis. A fibrosis score is typically calculated during liver biopsy (& some fancier liver imagings) to calculate how much damage a chronically inflammed liver has sustained, & its risk of failing /decompensating. Then you need a liver transplant. Read more

Likely: Perhaps not for the heart but for your liver and your brain. We also know the information regarding alcohol/wine and the heart is over-hyped, there is really no reason to drink alcohol if you are trying to protect your heart by it. Here is a link:

How long after drinking at least 4 oz of whisky is mixed drinks is it safe to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine)?

How long after drinking at least 4 oz of whisky is mixed drinks is it safe to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine)?

That's a lot: Taking 25 mg of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will be like having consumed 1-2 extra oz of whiskey in term of drowsiness effect. If you have previously consumed 6 oz of whiskey without problem, this may be ok. However if you had never drunk this much, then I would be cautious with the Benadryl (diphenhydramine). Read more

How much can I drink alcohol without harming myself if it's once a week? How much quantity? Vodka, whisky? And is one time per week an addiction?

How much can I drink alcohol without harming myself if it's once a week? How much quantity? Vodka, whisky? And is one time per week an addiction?

QUANTITY: Base behavior on what is wise. The different sensations when people drink = alterations of nerve function. The more you're buzzed the more you've put nerve tissue out of order. A little is okay, maybe relaxing; a lot and you pay for it after because alc is a toxin. Quantity varies with your liver function. If family members are alcoholic think genetics and don't even start.

How effective is whiskey or mixed drink for a toothache?

How effective is whiskey or mixed drink for a toothache?

Not Effective: I guess if you're drunk enough, you won't care about your toothache for a while, but alcohol doesn't cure or help a toothache in any significant or long-term way. Your symptoms may subside for a while, but they will definitely come back vehemently in the future. The only way to take care of this problem is to see a dentist. The sooner the better! Read more

Hi, do you think I can drink whiskey after taking melatonin?

Hi, do you think I can drink whiskey after taking melatonin?

Wrong question: The question isn't whether you CAN, the question is whether you SHOULD. Of course you can, and I am guessing that you either have or you probably will. One of the common causes of insomnia, that most doctors don't ever think of, is in people who drink regularly at night, which actually destroys normal sleep architecture and promotes insomnia. Whiskey on top of melatonin doesn't help, it hurts. Read more

Is it safe to drink whiskey that was stored for a long time (6 months) in leaded crystal?

It is often stored: Most, if not all, glass-bottles have some lead in it, espcially thick, older bottles. Unless they break, lead-glass bottles are safe for storage purposes and should not pose health risk unless broken etc...So, your whiskey should be fine. Whiskey that is aged for 12-yrs or longer is even nicer--smooth! Drink responsibly, member52213. Be safe and don't drink and drive. Good luck. Read more
