If I drink 4 units of vodka in 4 hours, how long will it take to leave my system?

If I drink 4 units of vodka in 4 hours, how long will it take to leave my system?

About 4 hours: We metabolize a standard drink (not sure what you mean by a "unit") or 1 1/2 oz of distilled spirit, 12 oz of beer or 5 oz of table wine in about one hour. It depends somewhat on your liver status, presence of other medications that cross-react, and how quickly you dirnk the alcohol, and to a slight extent on your weight and height. But in general, one drink per hour is the rule. ...Read more

If I had 3 cups of vodka straight, how long will it take to leave my system? Will it show up in a blood alcohol test?

24-48 hours & YES!: 3 cups of vodka is about 24 shots - or 24 drinks and it takes roughly 1-2 hours for a drink to clear the averge persons body or longer for females. 3 cups of vodka at one time would most likely kill you or at least take you to the hospital with alcohol poisining & a pumping of your stomach.

How long does the alcohol from four vodka drinks last in your system before you can medicate the throat pain from strep throat?

How long does the alcohol from four vodka drinks last in your system before you can medicate the throat pain from strep throat?

More info: The number of factors play a role including over what time frame you consumed the alcohol, whether or not you consumed the alcohol with food, your bodyweight, as well as what medication you're proposing to treat through pain with. It is probably safe to assume the alcohol would be gone within 10 to 12 hours. ...Read more

How long would it take to metabalize a fifth of vodka for a 150 pound man? I ate slept and drank lots of fluids!

How long would it take to metabalize a fifth of vodka for a 150 pound man? I ate slept and drank lots of fluids!

I think you have: Asked the same question about 3 ways. Alcohol is metabolized in the liver, and sweating and urinating remove only a very tiny amount. We metabolize about 1 drink per hour, so a fifth would take a day or more to completely be metabolized, more or less. However, your drinking is clearly beyond social and you are almost certainly alcoholic. You need help before you do permanent damage to body/mind. ...Read more

How long would it take to sober up from a litre of vodka over a period of 13 hours?

How long would it take to sober up from a litre of vodka over a period of 13 hours?

Not as long as it: Would take you to find some help. If you are drinking that much, then it is overwhelmingly likely that you have a serious problem with alcohol. Non-dependent people cannot physically drink that amount, so if you can, you are already dependent on alcohol. You can poison yourself, your liver, your heart and endanger your life and the lives of those around you. Get help. Sobering-up depends on liver. ...Read more

My aunt has cirrhosis of the liver and is in her final stange, but she continues to drink vodka, how can I help her? How much longer will she live?

My aunt has cirrhosis of the liver and is in her final stange, but she continues to drink vodka, how can I help her? How much longer will she live?

Not long: On the outside - under a year and I believe that is for people who have stopped drinking. It may be very painful too and there is simply nothing I can find to say that is hopeful. Hospice is the thought I have and their experience with palliative care will be a big help to make the last months as good as possible. If you can, try to enjoy your time together and let a pro deal w/ the hard stuff. ...Read more

Vodka and painkillers I did a few shots of vodka a few hours ago and now my back is hurting. How long before I can take tylenol (acetaminophen)?

Vodka and painkillers I did a few shots of vodka a few hours ago and now my back is hurting. How long before I can take tylenol (acetaminophen)?

Whenever: As long as you are not making a habit out of it. The toxic dose of Acetaminophen (the active ingredient in tylenol (acetaminophen)) is more toxic together with alcohol, but it would take 2 extra strength tylenol (acetaminophen) four to six times a day before it might cause problems, unless your liver is already damaged. We metabolize about one drink per hour, so if a couple of hours have passed, there should be no problems. ...Read more

How long after having 2 shots of vodka should I wait before I start taking my bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for abscess on my thigh?

How long after having 2 shots of vodka should I wait before I start taking my bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for abscess on my thigh?

Problem: You should not be drinking alcohol, now. Interaction with Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is only one issue, not based on when you take it, and not the pre-eminent issue. Alcohol suppresses your immune system, and therefore your recovery from an infection. Question: did your use of alcohol contribute to your getting the abscess? (You wouldn't be expected to know, but it may be worth thinking about.) ...Read more

See an allergist: All distilled spirits have some additives, preservatives and the like, and you may be allergic to some proprietary chemical in the mix. Alcohol allergy does occur, but it would not be specific to the brand of beverage. You don;t say what kind of reaction you are having, and I cannot tell you whether it is likely to be allergic in nature without knowing the specific signs and symptoms you get. ...Read more
