Why does wellbutrin (bupropion) say to not consume alcohol if there is no drug interaction?

Why does wellbutrin (bupropion) say to not consume alcohol if there is no drug interaction?

Product Labels: Product labels are designed to ensure that people who use the medication are as safe as possible, also some of the labelling is based on the class of agent rather than on specific information about the medication. So, you will find that the don't consume alcohol warning is on almost every, if not every, psychotropic agent. General experience is that a glass of wine at night is fine. ...Read more

25 mg metoprolol daily and now im gonna drink alcohol. What's ur thoughts? Do I get less drunk or more? And other interactions? Negatives?

The question is how: Much alcohol are you planning to drink. I assume you are on metoprolol for high blood pressure, which is unusual at your age. However, alcohol ITSELF can raise blood pressure, and is one of the more common and undetected causes of secondary hypertension. Your doctor needs to know about your drinking - how much, how often. If we are talking about 1-2 glasses of wine a few times a week, no problem ...Read more

Is vinegar the same as alcohol? If I can't drink due to medication interactions and health reasons, can I have apple cider vinegar safely?

Is vinegar the same as alcohol? If I can't drink due to medication interactions and health reasons, can I have apple cider vinegar safely?

Has no alcohol, safe: Vinegar does not contain alcohol. It has acetic acid, a very different chemical. It is very safe though should be diluted before consuming. There are no proven drug interactions; some sites say large amounts might interact with digoxin, insulin and diuretics because it can lower potassium, but it contains potassium so I doubt that.

Can I safely take phenergan (promethazine) several hours after drinking (like enough to get mildly drunk)? I know there is an alcohol interaction...

Don't mix 2 sedative: The biggest side effect of phenergan (promethazine) is sedation (sleepiness), which will add to the effects of alcohol. I do NOT recommend taking phenergan (promethazine) until you are completely sober after drinking alcohol. ...Read more

One caution would be not to do this regimen on an ongoing basis. If there is still a concern, I recommend checking with your primary care provider. ...Read more

Lost me dad 3yrs ago 1st time properly berieving after constant work n alcohol. Now struggling to control emotions. Anyone know how to control them?

Grief reaction: I'm sorry to hear about your loss. As I'm sure you know, alcohol is not the best solution for dealing w/grief. Rather than struggle to control your emotions, why not talk to your family? Friends? Church? Go see your family doctor. S/he can offer your options including medication if you desire. Your insurance company can offer your psychiatric options. Also search online for grief support groups. ...Read more

Would consuming alcohol on day 1 effect working out on day 2? For l seem to have less energy during workout when I have drinks up to 24 hours prior.

Alcohol = a toxin: No matter how enjoyable even moderate alcohol drinking may be, the fact remains that it is a toxin for your body -- especially liver and brain. Essentially you're asking your body to process a poison. So, your body will be less efficient both during intoxication and until all traces of alcohol have been processed. Remember that hangover is multifaceted. Be well. ...Read more

Could be anything: Getting "high" usually includes a sense of euphoria and decreased inhibition. The symptoms you describe could be from abuse of almost anything or even represent an underlying medical or psychological condition. Have you talked to her about getting help? Also, not to be judgemental, but I hope you are not on all 3 of the medications on your profile at the same time. Opiates can be addictive. ...Read more
