One glass of wine: Is OK even with CPAP use. The two full time jobs and 4 hrs sleep may be problematic. I'd look for a new job that pays twice as much doing what you like to do. ...Read more

Is there any harm in drinking one glass of red wine and 2.5 mg of valium?

Valium: Pill Alcohol: You should consider one dose of valium equal to a full bottle of wine. Benzodiazepines are just a pill form of ehanol, the alcohol in wine. So, that is one large dose of alcohol in one day, don't you think? They should not be taken together. ...Read more

After drinking one glass of wine almost 3 hours ago, when can I take my klonopin (clonazepam)?

Klonopin (clonazepam) and alcohol: Klonopin (clonazepam) ahould not be used with alcohol. These types of drugs combined with alcohol are the problems that find our celebrities dead in thier bathtubs. I would suggest at least 6-8 hrs between alcohol and klonopin, (clonazepam) but if you need the two of them you might consider yourself as having a substance abuse problem. ...Read more

Can I take a sleeping tablet while I've had a glass of wine?

Not advised: I would not recommend every drinking alcohol and taking sedating sleep medication. Together alcohol and sedative/hypnotics can magnify their effects and lead to respiratory depression, which essentially means you can go to sleep and not wake up. There have been unintentional deaths as a result. This would apply to alcohol and pain meds and benzodiazepines. ...Read more

Hello,: Hello, I am wondering if this could be hypothyroidism. Some symptoms can inlcude: weight gain, hair loss, iincrease in tongue size and dry skin. Dry skin can be a source of itching. Other possible symptoms include: feeling tired and weak, feeling depressed or irritable, decreased sex drive, muscle cramps and pain, coarsening of hair, sensitivity to cold and constipation. If your skin feels dry, I suggest using a moisturing lotion. The way that hypothyroidism or other possible endocrine problems would be diagnosed is through specific lab tests. ...Read more

Would drinking a half a glass of wine at 6pm affect a complete metabolic panel test that was performed the next morning at 10?

VERY little if any: The reason one is asked to fast and avoid alcohol before blood testing is to get the most accurate result for the fasting glucose and the triglycerides. An 8 hour fast is usually recommended. You had a relatively small dose of sugar (wine) and it was 12 hours before. I believe your results will be quite reliable. Stay well:) ...Read more

I drink a tad over 1 glass of wine (6 ounces)most nights of the week. I also have IFG. Will the wine HELP or HURT my fight against preventing Diabetes?

I drink a tad over 1 glass of wine (6 ounces)most nights of the week. I also have IFG. Will the wine HELP or HURT my fight against preventing Diabetes?

Honestly, the answer: Depends on how much you are able to eliminate other carbohydrates from your diet. A 6 ounce glass of wine contains about 150 calories and 5 grams of carbohydrate. This is certainly manageable and will not adversely affect your efforts in diabetes prevention as long as you keep other carbs in check. Dry wines have lower sugar content: pinot noir, pinot blanc, sauvignon blanc. Salut! ...Read more

Is it safe to drink one glass of wine after taking a total of 3mg of Ativan (lorazepam). The last 1mg was taken 4 hrs ago. The other two mg have been like 8hr ago?

I think you must: Already know not to mix these or you wouldn't have asked the question. I agree with earlier answer not to mix alcohol and ativan (lorazepam). I would however recommend that you wait 60 hours (2 1/2 days) until you consider drinking alcohol. They are a dangerous combination. If you take ativan (lorazepam) regularly - would recommend against drinking alcohol altogether. ...Read more
