Why do oeople with leukopenia wish to drink hot drinks?

Why do oeople with leukopenia wish to drink hot drinks?

From MD Health: Because the immune system is damaged the patient is more likely to develop inflammation in the mouth. This may occur around the cheeks, lips, tongue cheeks, tonsils, etc. Patients may also develop inflammation of the stomach lining as the natural bacteria in the system grows at an unchecked rate. These conditions may cause the patient to crave hot beverages.

Hot drink ear pain: The pain in your ear is probably referred pain from your phayrnx, your hot drink stimulates/irritaates the pharynx nerve and the pain is referred ot the ear. Do you have a smiliar discomfort when you eat or drink cold stuff? You should see an ENT doc.

Effects of smoking/drinking while taking antibiotics?

Depends: It depends on the antibiotic; for instance, Metronidazole has a horrible interaction with alcohol. Smoking and drinking in general are not good ideas, especially when infected.

Please tell me, could you drink alcohol while on the antibiotic amox tr-k clv?

Please tell me, could you drink alcohol while on the antibiotic amox tr-k clv?

Don't know, but...: Since there are no double-blind, randomized control trials to answer this question, can't tell you for sure. However, the question that I have is - since an antibiotic is usually given only for a few days, if you don't feel like you can safely refrain from drinking alcohol for even that period, might you be struggling with an alcohol problem. Please discuss this with your doctor asap.

What complications can arise from drinking or using drugs while on antibiotics?

Don't do it.: There are many complications that can occur. Your health isn't worth risking for a short-term pleasure. Wait until you are off antibiotics until drinking alcohol again and stay far away from any drugs that are not prescribed.

I have to take some antibiotics and I was drinking last night, so how long do I need to wait to take them?

I have to take some antibiotics and I was drinking last night, so how long do I need to wait to take them?

No wait at all: You don't need to wait at all. Contrary to popular beliefs, almost no antibiotics interact with alcohol. Heavy alcohol impairs the immune system's ability to fight infection, but alcohol in moderation makes no difference. Just don't overdo it.

What about if I wasn't drinking when I took the Keller, and aloud time for the antibiotic to absorb before I drank. Would it still decrease the effect?

What's Keller?: Sorry, we have no way of seeing your previous questions and being able to read it with this one. If you are asking if you can drink on antibiotics. No, especially with certain ones. But it is not a good idea with any. You are sick, that is why you are on them. Don't drink alcohol when you are sick, save it to celebrate when you are better. See http://tinyurl. Com/pnctove
