Give it more time: In general, I advise patients to abstain from alcohol when they are being treated for depression or anxiety.

In other words, don't muddy the waters. Talk to your doctor about treatment recommendations and risk for drug-alcohol use. ...Read more

Is a glass of red wine daily good or bad for a fatty liver of 43yr old male, heard that it might help with this condition, or just weight loss?

I took my last dose of Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) about 8 hours ago. Can I have one glass of red wine?

Moderation is good: Yes, one glass of wine shouldn't hurt. The half-life of bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is relatively short (which is why you can take it 2 or 3 times a day)... so if it's been 8 hrs already, it's probably out of your system. Hopefully you will be kind to your body, since I'm sure it's not back to 100% having just pulled through an infection. It does take time to heal... ...Read more
