What is the best way to detox from 2 bottles of wine and 3mg of Klonopin (clonazepam) a day? Professional care is not an option.

Slowly: I recommend going to 2 mg a day x a week then 1 mg a day x a week then 1/2 mg a day x a week then stop. Wine: go to one bottle a day x 4 days then 1/2 a bottle a day x 4 days then stop. Biggest risk is DTs or seizures. The klonopine will help prevent that, so it gets stopped later ...Read more

Will a bottle of wine a day cause cirrhosis and if so how quickly?

Will a bottle of wine a day cause cirrhosis and if so how quickly?

Depends: It will cause cirrhosis in only about 10% of the individuals. More risk if the person also has viral hepatitis, hemochromatosis and/or nutritional deficiencies. However drinking that much will certainly damage the brain in all drinkers. For a woman drinking during pregnancy may cause brain damage to the fetus as well. See this site for more info.

If I cut out alcohol, how much fat would I lose? Had 1 glass wine per day like recommended

If I cut out alcohol, how much fat would I lose? Had 1 glass wine per day like recommended

Not relativre: Loss of fat is not directly related to alcohol intake per day, but rather a result of a balance of caloric intake (including protein, carbs, and fat) and from which specific foods plus the daily activity-exercise levels. These factors, along with your metabolic rate and genetics have much more to do with fat reduction than the daily glass of wine or alcohol intake within reason. Diet, exercise! ...Read more

Does drinking two glasses of wine a day cause stomach ulcers?

Does drinking two glasses of wine a day cause stomach ulcers?

Not really: Moderate wine, alcohol consumption does not help an ulcer condition but it does not cause it either... Alcohol in heavy chronic use may cause multiple digestive problems including gastritis, reflux and liver problems but other factors will need to co-exist to create an ulcer. For example the helicobacter pylori bacterium in the stomach lining, or use of non-steroidal ani-inflammatories or aspirin. ...Read more

I read that beer or liquor (example: vodka) are equally as good for your health (when having 1 drink per day) as wine. Is this really true?

I read that beer or liquor (example: vodka) are equally as good for your health (when having 1 drink per day) as wine. Is this really true?

Not all buzzes equal: 1.5 oz of liquor, 4-5 oz wine, 12 oz beer in US has generally same alcohol content. While controversial no alcohol is probably best but generally accepted 1-2/day max may be safe. Health benefits may vary, red wine generally accepted as better. In past showed greater association of cataracts with beer and hard liquor. Bottom line occasionally one won't hurt. Don't save up for all 14 on weekend ...Read more

Can I have wine on day 5 of ciprofloxacin? Will it cause a bad reaction if I don't get drunk just have a glass or two?

While it shouldn't: Be a problem, I would make sure I limited it, particularly since you say you are 19, and therefore below legal drinking age. You should know that if you are stopped while driving for any reason, ANY amount of alcohol on board will be considered impairing, particularly if you are stopped for speeding, unsafe driving or are in an accident. Alcohol is not good for the immune system&delays healing. ...Read more

When I have 1-2 sips of beer or wine, I get nausia and feel sick for a day or two, almost staightaway... Could it be liver or stomach?

Yes: You just might not have the physiologic tolerance for alcohol. But to be safe, it's always a good idea to talk w/your family doc and get checked out. Blood work to assess your liver is easy & inexpensive. If your stomach doesn't bother you any other time, I wouldn't worry too much about h pylori. But if you're nauseated all the time, you need to get checked out more thoroughly. ...Read more

I have colon cancer and need to have a colonography. The two day prep says to eat clear liquids only. Would it be a problem to include a few glasses of white wine with plenty of water?

Bowel prep: White wine would be a clear liquid, but you don't want the sedative nature of any alcohol interfering with the sedative that may accompany colonoscopy or any other procedure, so it is generally not recommeded. If you use any, be up front and let the physician doing the procedure know. ...Read more

How much weight would you gain if you were to start consuming 2 bottles of wine a week?

Not healthy: Weight gain is much more complex than intake of wine by the bottle. Evidence exists that a glass per day is potentially helpful to your health, but none that says higher intake is good. Weight gain is more related to type of foods (protein, carbs, fat) and the type of physical activity you do. ...Read more
