Without what? : Passing out? Destroying your liver? Or kidneys? An intense workout causes a mild ( or more) lactic acidosis and frequently an elevation in cpk. It also can cause the release of myoglobin. Add alcohol, a known diuretic in any of these scenarios and you are bound for trouble. Why would you be so smart and healthy by working out and then .?

Oversedation?: I am not aware of any untoward reaction by combining hydroxyzine and alcohol. The average person after drinking 4 beers is not anxious and if you are still anxious I would seek an explanation for same.

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
Wait for what ?: Both Ritalin (methylphenidate) and alcohol do have an effect on your brain, but are not totally incompadible. The short acting ritalins (methylphenidate) are in and out of your system in 4-6 hours or less, while the timed release forms may linger for 8 or so.

I am a student . I want to drink coffee to stay focused . How much caffeine can I drink daily ? And how many times ? Without harming myself in any way
Wouldn't suggest it: First, why are you on lorazepam? If it is prescribed for you, it is to treat an anxiety disorder. Alcohol is a 2-edged sword in people with anxiety, because it is short-acting, resolves anxiety for a short-time, but then it comes back even worse than before. Secondly, Ativan has a clinical half life of over 12 hours, and benzos and alcohol DO NOT MIX. If not prescribed, DON'T TAKE IT. ...Read more

How about stopping: the energy drink?? When a person consistently has a problematic symptom after using a substance, but continues to USE that substance, that is a problem. Energy drinks are neither healthy nor natural, and while some of them are the equivalent of a good strong cup of coffee, others are caffeine overdoses waiting to happen, combined with a dozen useless or toxic substances, including sugar. ...Read more

By not drinking: too much. There are scores, perhaps hundreds of folk remedies for hangover, and anytime there are that many "solutions" to a problem, it's because none of them work all that well. If you drink too much, you will get a hangover, especially with beers, red wines, whiskeys, which have higher rates than "clear" alcohol - but both can cause them. Latest cure I heard about - warm sprite. Cut down!!!!! ...Read more
