How long does a glass of wine stay in your system?

depends: A glass of wine is an amount called "a standard drink". It is "standard", because most people would metabolize it within one hour. To answer the question specifically for your body, not statistically, you need to conduct an experiment. Do not forget you might feel differently depending on the day, the level of tiredness, social environment, air temperature etc. Etc. Etc. Try. ...Read more

Problem: It is really not about the timing, and i understand that the answer might sound extreme. First of all, you mention alprazolam, Clonazepam in your list of meds, but only ask about ativan. Your dr probably assumed that you would not use alcohol while on treatment with those 3 CNS depressants. We don t know when you will take or need your next ativan. Please ask your dr. See comment. ...Read more

No alcohol with meds: Paracetamol is like acetaminophen, thus will react with liver enzymes. Alcohol may also interact with enzymes in the liver and interfere in filtration of toxins in the blood, which is the primary purpose of the liver, so it is best not to consume any alcohol with medications in general, and especially with those medications that may interfere with liver metabolism enzymes. ...Read more

I have one glass of wine a night, am I addicted?

I have one glass of wine a night, am I addicted?

No.: I wouldn't worry about one glass of wine a night (if that's all it is, and you don't have a history of alcoholism or substance abuse). If that glass of wine is causing substantial conflicts with your family, work, relationships, or the law, then you start getting into some shady territory. But for the majority of people, one glass of wine a night is fine. Everything in moderation. Cheers! ...Read more

I like one glass of wine with dinner. Am I an alcoholic and/or risking my child's health?

Pregnant?: If that glass is 5 ounces, which defines one drink of wine, then unlikely and probably has some modest health benefits. Now if your are referring to your unborn child, then yes you may be risking your childs health and should not drink period. ...Read more

If one glass of wine is good for health, are two better?

If one glass of wine is good for health, are two better?

One is enough: Increasing to two glasses of wine has not been associated with health benefits greater than a single glass per day. In this example, there are some believed benefits of very limited amounts of wine (typically a red), but excess intake can be harmful to your health. Everything in moderation is a smarter path. ...Read more
