How long do i have to wait after drinking 4 beers to take atarax (hydroxyzine) for anxiety?

How long do i have to wait after drinking 4 beers to take atarax (hydroxyzine) for anxiety?

Oversedation?: I am not aware of any untoward reaction by combining hydroxyzine and alcohol.

My best guess is that you have an alcohol use disorder but a thorough history and exam would be helpful. The risk of combining atarax and alcohol is over sedation. ...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

Ritalin! how long do I have to wait to drink alcohol after using it?

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. If you want to avoid overlapping the drugs this should give you an idea.As long as you limit the alcohol to mild social consumption, i see no reason to worry about it. ...Read more

What to do if I had ativan (lorazepam) 9 hours ago can I drink 2 beers?

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 can I solve vomitting /sickness/ hangover after a night out?

How can I solve vomitting /sickness/ hangover after a night out?

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
